Safety has to be at the top of the agenda for any company working at height and at Hoist & Access Services it is an absolute priority for everyone. Safety is absolutely paramount in what we do and we welcome the stringent safety requirements set by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) regarding construction hoists. We know what we are doing and can share this safety expertise with your team during our rigorous on-site training when we install a construction hoist on your project.
To ensure that the health & safety procedures throughout Hoist & Access Services are absolutely up to date and thoroughly robust, we employ a specialist safety consultancy to provide us with a comprehensive health & safety service. Health & Safety Services (Glasgow) Ltd have provided their expertise to our company for a number of years and provide regular training for our workforce. Our compliance with statutory legislation such as the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 is therefore assured.
Safety is incredibly important to Hoist & Access Services and is the mainstay of our business. To monitor our practices, we carry out regular inspections, have our independent safety consultant, Health & Safety Services (Glasgow) Ltd, carry out routine inspections and we also have full safety audits.
Additionally, our membership and affiliations of professional groups such as the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) and the Construction Hoist Interest Group (CHIG) assist us in keeping up to date with new regulations and observations affecting health & safety practices for hoists.
