Health & Safety

Buxted Construction Limited is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of its employees and that of other persons who may be affected by our activities.  A safety advisor is directly employed to ensure our compliance with statutory regulations and to promote a culture of safety first within the organisation.

All employees are provided with information, instruction and training as is necessary to enable the safe performance of work activities.  Employees are consulted on all matters that affect their health, safety and welfare.

Training

A training database is utilised to ensure that all employees training needs are met and updated as necessary.

We are committed to the CSCS card scheme and currently 98% of all employees have a CSCS/CPCS card, or both.  All of our Contracts Managers have the SMSTS qualification and a number of our supervisors have the SSSTS qualification.  All our supervisors hold a CSCS supervisors card.

Refresher training is conducted frequently to reflect changes in legislation, best practice, or Client requirements.  Toolbox talks are conducted on site and employees are written to in order to ensure that they are kept up to date with new legislation and changes to working practice.

Monitoring

Health, safety and welfare monitoring is conducted at all levels within the company.  Employees are encouraged to raise issues, along with site engineers and quantity surveyors.

All issues raised are investigated by the safety advisor and communicated to all employees to promote a safety culture within the company.
