Here at Secure Access Scaffolding, we take great pride in the reputation we have as one of the most trusted scaffolding contractors serving Leatherhead and the surrounding areas. Despite this well-earned reputation, however, our team of scaffolding erectors never compromises the safety of our domestic and commercial scaffolding services. With more than two decades of experience shared between our personnel, we recognise that unerring adherence to HSE legislation forms the foundation of all reputable scaffolding companies. With safety credentials from bodies including CISRS, CHAS, CITB, Constructionline, SafeContractor and FORS, we ensure that our clients in Leatherhead receive nothing but the safest scaffolding services in the area.
As completely transparent and honest scaffolding contractors, we have listed the primary ways in which we keep domestic and commercial construction sites in Leatherhead safe.
1. Method Statements & Risk Assessments
In our position as one of the foremost scaffolding companies in the Leatherhead area, we undertake scaffolding services in line with the results of job-specific method statements and risk assessments. Similarly, we also undertake independent safety audits and site inspections to ensure that our bespoke support structures perfectly fit the dimensions of the property at hand. In addition, these preparatory actions allow us to supply sites with the required Health & Safety resources. Risk assessments must be undertaken by site managers and scaffolding erectors by law.
2. Regular Training of Scaffolding Erectors
As time-served scaffolding contractors, it is our firm belief that the best way to uphold the highest levels of workmanship and Health & Safety practices at every level of a company is to undertake regular and ongoing training. Like all respected scaffolding companies, we ensure that our scaffolding erectors receive training in full compliance with Work at Height Regulations 2005 and the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. In addition, we also base significant amounts of our training on the guidelines set out in TG20:13 and SG4:15. With a comprehensively-trained team of scaffolding erectors equipped with the required PPE, our clients in the Leatherhead area can rest assured that their scaffolding services remain in safe hands.
3. Assembling Safe Scaffolds
Having laid extensive safety foundations, our scaffolding erectors can begin work on assembling the scaffold structure itself. In keeping with our commitment to exemplary safety, the support systems constructed by our scaffolding erectors on site in Leatherhead, or anywhere in the region, are entirely lawful. As reputable scaffolding contractors the materials we use adhere to all relevant British Standards for performance and design, including BS EN 12811-1. By meeting these requirements our scaffolding erectors assemble and tie scaffolds specially designed to bear the workload of any domestic or commercial project, as well as any extreme weather conditions.
4. Inspection of Scaffold Materials
To ensure the ongoing safety of individual components and assembled structures alike, our scaffolding contractors conduct regular inspections of the materials we use. These inspections involve checks of materials before assembly and again immediately after dismantling. For more long-term scaffolding services in Leatherhead, we carry out an inspection on assembled scaffolds every subsequent 7 days after the original erection. For the ultimate peace of mind, our scaffolding erectors also undertake checks in the aftermath of adverse weather conditions. To ensure the utmost safety, we strongly recommend that homeowners and businesses avoid scaffolding companies who cannot demonstrate that they carry out such comprehensive safety checks.
