A property maintenance company who carry out a variety of construction related activities and work on behalf of many major companies in the North West.
This company was reported to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) via an anonymous tip off concerning the dust that they were generating during a particular refurbishment job.
The HSE visited their site and closed the job down, highlighting numerous failings including:
The client contacted Comply at Work to help them get back to work as quickly as possible, so we arranged an immediate visit to their site. We then contacted the HSE inspector directly to assure them that it was being dealt with and to agree that we would communicate with the HSE on our client’s behal.
We put together the required documentation for them including RAMS (incorporating an action plan for reducing and controlling the dust levels) and a comprehensive Construction Phase Plan. We also coordinated the arrangement of an asbestos survey and the installation of suitable fire precautions.
We delivered and documented training for their personnel including tool box talks on Asbestos Awareness, Manual Handing, Slips, Trips & Falls, and Working at Height.
Our communication with the HSE inspector ensured that the site was back up and working within the week, and the HSE inspector validated the improvements following a follow up visit.
