Managing hazards on site

With tens of thousands of injuries recorded in construction each year, you’ll face many rules and regulations. But managing health & safety on construction sites is more than just meeting certain guidelines. It’s about protecting lives. Meeting HSE rules in construction isn’t always straightforward – as you need to consider the safety of your staff, contractors, and clients. And no matter whether your client is commercial or domestic, you need to take every step to make sure you get the job done safely.

We can help you with every aspect of your health & safety management. That includes site set-up and layout, training, construction phase plans, supporting you through risk assessments – and much more. And with our 24/7 helpline, you can speak to a construction health & safety advisor whenever you need help.
