Basements construction is classed as major civil engineering works and not to be undertaken lightly.
There are many potential dangers if the correct approach is not adopted and the personnel correctly trained.
We have our own full time member of staff who is solely dedicated to H&S and visits our sites weekly, updates our records and trains our staff.
We have external trainers visit our premises and provide additional training as well. 6 members of our staff recently passed the CITB SMSTS. The CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme, or SMSTS for short, is a health and safety course which is intended for project managers, site managers and senior supervisors.
The SMSTS course provides the knowledge required to comply with legislation and regulations regarding a construction site, such as the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
