Health & Safety

When it comes to scaffolding safety always has to be the number one priority for the sake of the public, your team and the project.

We take health and safety extremely seriously, with a range of high-profile clients and projects behind us nothing will do but the best, and after all its expertise that our customers come to us for.

We invest in getting it perfect with highly trained staff, a wealth of experience and the back-up of an independent health and safety expert regularly monitoring and improving on our safety policy and approaches.

A few essentials of our approach include;

  • Level and strong foundations on every scaffold
  • Public and object risk (such as power lines) considered in design
  • All British Standards and HSE recommendations followed
  • Safety barriers and netting for scaffolds over 2m
  • Tidy work policy to eliminate tripping hazards or drops
  • Weekly structure checks
  • Damage and extreme weather checks


Part of our service includes a full survey and expert engineering-led design work so that we can fully risk assess every possibility and come up with designs and operations that reduce risk and accident potential to absolute minimums.

Our scaffolding team are also highly experienced in maintaining health and safety awareness throughout a build; fully CITB registered, trained specifically in confined spaces and health and safety issues within the industry they are a collective ultimate final live check of all our policies and methods.
