Due to the constant loud noises, heavy-duty machinery and potentially dangerous equipment, construction and demolition sites hold certain inherent risks. Like any reputable groundworks, plant hire or demolition company, Kent Groundwork & Demolition fully complies with all current Health & Safety legislation pertaining to our work. By managing risks and hazards, we greatly reduce the likelihood of accidents that may harm our personnel, the public or impact on any surrounding property in the Gravesend area. This adherence to safety also extends to our work as crushed concrete suppliers and topsoil suppliers, be it loading, transportation or delivery.
Below, we have outlined some of the guidelines we follow to ensure safety across our full range of services, excluding those we perform as crushed concrete suppliers and topsoil suppliers.
The full range of legislation pertaining to groundworks is too far-reaching to cover here, so we have highlighted some of the cornerstones to we follow to safeguard our sites.
If you require a perfect finishing touch after your groundworks, we provide a service as topsoil suppliers. From certified to ‘as dug’, we have a full range of topsoils to meet any requirement.
Demolition projects pose a unique risk. Not only must we bring a structure down, we must do so in a controlled and safe manner. It goes without saying that falling objects represent a significant risk to health. As such, we operate with a zero-harm ethos: any person involved in our service as a demolition company should not be harmed by the work we perform.
While this includes risk assessments and safe practices on site in Gravesend, it starts well beforehand in the form of superior levels of training for our already experienced and competent staff. This ensures the identification of any hazards, safe behaviour, public protection and ongoing improvement with every project.
Our demolition services have strong ties to those we carry out as crushed concrete suppliers. We secure as much waste material from these sites as possible for use in new construction projects.
Before we even deliver plant hire options to our clients in Gravesend, we perform all required tests, maintenance and servicing for every item in our fleet. What’s more, our staff receive meticulous training on a regular basis in line with current initiatives designed to enhance safety within the construction industry. Naturally, in turn, this reduces the number of on-site accidents.
While risk assessments highlight the individual hazard on each particular site, we also promote the following of these vital rules:
Whether you hire us for any of the above listed services, or for our work as crushed concrete suppliers and topsoil suppliers, you can rest assured that safety always remains our number one priority.
