Health & Safety

At Buxted Construction we believe safety is the number one priority above all else.

Safety is lead from the top level of the business with full director support in all matters relating to safety, health and wellbeing. We use internal health and safety professionals to maintain the high safety standards Buxted strive to achieve, and an external auditing body undertakes annual audits, which provide a comprehensive report on our ongoing performance.

Our goal is to get everyone home safely at the end of every working day. We achieve this goal in several ways, whether it be our in-house bilingual training team who deliver training in a variety of subjects including:

  • CAT & genny
  • Manual handling
  • Abrasive wheels
  • Vehicle & plant banksman
  • Asbestos awareness
  • Small plant & power tools

…..and many more.

Delivering these courses in house enables us to ensure all operatives get the absolute best level of training possible and a compressive understanding of the topic. The in-house training also enables the safety team to pick up on any skills gaps and skill fade to ensure all operatives have the required level of knowledge.

We are proud to help our workers continually improve and gain further training, we do this by providing training in the use of mechanical plant (excavator, ride on roller, dumper), street works qualifications (NRSRA), site managers safety training scheme (SMSTS) and obtaining and renewing CITB CSCS cards.

We conduct regular toolbox talks to ensure our site operatives are kept up to date with the latest information, regulations, guidance and trends in the business.

Buxted is committed to providing and training mental health first aiders who run mental health sessions in all areas of the business to ensure everyone knows what support is available and how to access it. We also support the mental health charity “Mates in Mind” and run workshops based on their materials.

We are proud to hold memberships with various SSIP’s (Safety Scheme in Procurement) such as SMAS, CHAS & CQMS.
