Bermar has extensive experience of preparing and managing Construction Stage Health & Safety Plans, quite often in sensitive environments (Hospitals, Schools, Care Homes, for example).
We use the Considerate Constructor Scheme on our sites. We consistently record high marks and are Double National Award winners.
We communicate and consult with our workforce in the following ways:
Safety consciousness is encouraged at all levels, with suggestion boxes on sites.
Written Risk Assessments and Method Statements are communicated to the workforce verbally and methods are reviewed at site level with the operatives to ‘fine-tune’ implementation.
All subcontractors are vetted for CHAS compliance.
Their Safety Plans are checked and integrated by our Management into our Construction Safety Plan. Before entry on to our tender lists they are vetted by Eagle Safety Associates Ltd.
Each subcontractor must have a Supervisor to liaise with our Site Manager on Safety matters. Subcontractors are monitored using KPIs, which also incorporates Safety matters. These are subject to Audit under ISO 9001.
Insurance documentation must be provided, checked and filed for all subcontractors on an annual basis.
All operatives including subcontractors receive site specific safety induction which highlights such matters as the presence of young people or disabled people etc.
DBS checks will include subcontracting staff.
