Health & Safety
Health & Safety is very important not only to you the customer but to us as well, we want our workforce to work in a safe environment at all times
Health and Safety
At Parker Environmental Services Ltd, we believe Health and Safety are paramount to our continued success. We use Health and Safety as a starting point
in all our contracts by ensuing all the bases are covered regarding today’s demanding health and safety requirements.
Our continuing policy on health and safety is to conduct our operations in such a manner as to ensure; so far as is reasonable and practicable, the safety, health and welfare at work of our employees and to prevent risks to the safety or health of others. In addition to this, to comply with all relevant laws and regulations and to co-operate with those responsible for enforcing them.
We have our own in-house safety advisor and also employ a consultancy company to back up the safety advisor with up to date advice and to carry out audits at our site in Pontypool.
Method Statements & Risk Assessments
All site work and installation is carried out in accordance with our risk assessments and method statements which are specific for each project.
All our site operatives hold Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) cards and where necessary are PASMA and IPAF trained. Supervisors hold the Site Safety Supervisors Training Scheme (SSSTS) certification in accordance with the CITB requirements. Other training is carried out to suit the task.
SAFE Contractor & CHAS (Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP)
The Safe Contractor and CHAS schemes offers Safety Schemes In Procurement (SSIP) to clients, without the need of assessing them themselves.
As clients have a legal obligation to ensure that the external contractors and service providers they use, work on their premises and operate in a safe way, there is a requirement to assess contractor’s health & safety arrangements to ensure they comply and act in a safe manner.
Over the last 6 years, SSIP activity has increasingly been able to cut pre-qualification costs and bureaucracy in the supply chain. With the ever-present prospect of government legislation to reduce wasteful and excessive pre-qualification, SSIP is concentrating on making cross-recognition of member schemes as effective as possible, and on highlighting the resulting savings to the supply chain.
The BESA Competance Assessment Scheme
The BESA Competence Assessment Scheme provides verification of compliance with recognised industry and legal standards for each BESA member.
Compliance is ensured through regular third-party assessments, undertaken on BESA’s behalf by BESCA. The inspection process scrutinises commercial capability, workforce commitment and technical competence of each business.
The purpose of the scheme is to verify that applicants and members fully comply with BEAS’s membership requirements.
The membership process is to complete and pass a Health & Safety desk-top assessment confirming compliance with the requirements of Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP).
