Section 20 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 requires that an organisation produce a written programme to safeguard:
- the safety and health of employees while they work.
- the safety and health of other people who might be at the workplace, including customers, visitors and members of the public.
Your Safety Statement is a life time investment, we will review and update your safety statement every year for free!
A method statement, sometimes called a “safe system of work”, is a document that details the way a work task or process is to be completed.
The method statement should outline the hazards involved and include a step by step guide on how to do the job safely
We will provide you with a site specific method statement and deal with site staff directly allowing you to concentrate on the contract.
Risk Assessment is a careful examination of what, in the workplace, could cause harm to people, so that the employer can weigh up whether he or she has taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm.
Risk Assessment are the employers first line of defence against work related injury claims. Frequently insurance companies will require task and site specific risk assessments before quoting for your insurance policy
Accidents are investigated for a variety of reasons however the main purpose of any investigation should be to establish the root cause of the accident/ incident / dangerous occurrence in question and thereafter to identify and implement corrective actions / control measures to prevent reoccurrence.
It is the legal responsibility of an employer to report an accident to the HSA.
Site Safety Audits
In order to ensure, construction site health and safety standards are adhered to, it is important to continually monitor and document the performance of all employees, contractors and subcontractors on site
We use a state of the art audit software package to provide a comprehensive audit trail for your project.
Audits can be arranged on a site by site requirement and an audit package can be developed to suit your budget and time constraints

Traffic Management Plans
A Traffic Management Plan is required by law under Chapter 8 of the Traffic Signs Manual and the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work (Construction) Regs. Therefore, a Traffic Management Plan is required to ensure systems are put in place to complete work safely and ensure that operatives, pedestrians and traffic are segregated safely and effectively
Health and Safety Plans
The primary objective of the Health and Safety Plan or SSWP is to identify the major hazards associated with your work activities and to ensure that appropriate controls are in place before work commences.
For small scale tasks an SSWP worksheet may suffice, for larger more complicated task as more robust plan will be required.
