SAFETY RULES ARE OUR BEST TOOLS!
SKN believe that health and safety is the most important aspect of every scaffold hire project we undertake. At SKN, we pride ourselves on our health and safety awareness and project management skills.
We work closely with our operatives to make sure they are aware of new industry standards, which enables them to work safely and confidently on site.
Your team, our team and the general public all put their lives in the hands of scaffolds every day working on them or walking by them, a poorly designed or constructed scaffold can easily lead to falling objects, people and even entire buildings so it’s an area we take really seriously.
We operate a strict health and safety policy to provide and maintain a safe workplace for all our employees, customers, visitors, contractors and others who may be affected by our activity.
We ensure that each operative is given the opportunity to achieve new qualifications through CITB/CISRS training.
Our surveyor carries out a full survey prior to commencement of works to identify any potential risks such as power lines, foundations etc. The risk assessment is then recorded and method statements are created to prevent accidents from the risks identified. The method statement is followed by all engineers on site to ensure the safety of themselves, colleagues and the public throughout the project.
We take into account essential concerns such as ladders, load weights and supports throughout the design and ensure that our erection teams are fully conversant with the latest health and safety legislation so that good practice and compliance can be attended to throughout the build.
We ensure there is full compliance with all relevant Health and Safety directives and enforce these at all times including design and competence issues, the supervision of scaffolders, and inspections by appropriately qualified staff. SKN Scaffolding Ltd works to TG20:13. On site, We work along side a lot of health and safety organisations such as CHAS, CITB and Constructionline, keeping health and safety our main priority.
No matter what your requirements for scaffolding are, make sure health and safety plays a big role!
