Consideration for all aspects of Health and Safety has always played a major part in the way S H Structures approaches each project. We ensure that H&S is considered throughout all our activities and areas where we carry out our work from our offices and factory to the various construction sites throughout the UK.
Safe systems of work are continually being reviewed and developed and staff are provided with the necessary support, training and tools to carry out their duties safely. All site staff have the appropriate level of CSCS cards and training/qualifications appropriate to their individual role and activities.
Aspects of H&S also play a major role during the design and development of a project. We look carefully at how structures are going to be fabricated, assembled, transported and finally installed on site. This can include things like temporary works design, access systems and installation methodology.
We work closely with our erection teams and as part of the industry Incident and Injury Free Initiative, the company now uses the 3-d model created for each project as part of the induction process before work starts on site. Using a viewer on a laptop, the Site Manager is able to provide the site team with a 3-d walk-through of the structure to be erected to supplement the conventional method statement and 2D drawings. This has proved to be a powerful addition to procedure, enabling the site teams to contribute more actively to the safe erection of a project.
