We conduct a site-specific risk assessment prior to every job, and all staff are trained first aiders. We establish safe working zones as standard, and every team includes at least one member with a Chapter 8 temporary road signage certificate.
Our tools are regularly inspected and maintained according to PUWER and LOLER regulations. All equipment is petrol- or diesel-powered meaning we never need access to on-site electricity.
All of our employees have been CRB checked and are trustworthy and reliable.
As a matter of course, we check for birds nesting as well as other animals. All unwanted tree waste is removed and recycled.
