Health and Safety
Health and Safety in Kent
Here at Bon Groundwork Ltd, we make the health and safety of our employees, our customers, and anyone else affected by our work, our number one priority. This includes our own crew of groundwork contractors, as well as any other workers involved in the project, and general members of the public. To achieve this, we make risk assessments and method statements an integral part of our on-site health and safety management process.
We consult with our groundwork contractors on health and safety matters on a constant basis. As the people operating at ground level, they are best-placed to assist us when reviewing our health and safety policies, which we attend to periodically.
These policies are revised whenever new legislation is applied to our sector. This regular review and revision allows us to keep our health and safety systems record at the forefront of our business operations.
Clients across Bromley, Dartford, Maidstone, Medway, Orpington, Sevenoaks, Tunbridge Wells, and beyond, may receive a copy of our current health and safety polices any time, upon request.
Risk Assessments and Method Statements
A risk assessment involves a thorough appraisal of the construction site to identify potential hazards for our staff and establish the best way to eliminate or, at the very least, mitigate them. Risk assessments are performed on every project and subsequently consolidated into our method statements. These documents give us the opportunity to provide adequate safety training both for our own personnel and for other contractors.
Throughout their training and personal development, we make sure our own employees recognise the importance of health and safety at work. We also ensure that they understand our company systems before undertaking any ground work, foundation or drainage work.
All employees at Bon Groundwork Ltd are trained to the latest CSCS and CITB standards. Likewise, foremen and site managers are fully-trained to meet current SMSTS and SSSTS standards.
Site Inspection and Review
As professional groundwork contractors, our company meets all specified requirements for inspecting and reporting on construction sites, as laid down in the latest version of the Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations 1996. We keep ourselves appraised of any changes to this legislation, update our inspection and review process accordingly.
Our foremen and site managers uphold the Regulations at all times, completing site inspection reports for our company’s Health and Safety Officer on a frequent basis.
