Demolition - Health & Safety
At Reddish Demolition Limited, Health, Safety and Environmental considerations come first.

Safety is our number one priority and at the forefront of everything we do. Not only do we have a legal obligation to ensure that our work is carried out in a safe environment, but we also have a moral obligation to ensure that all our employees return home safely every day, and that our works do not effect or cause harm to our sub contractors.

All our Method statement/Risk Assessments are specific to the individual projects and are written by our dedicated Health and Safety Manager and Managing Director. Site Supervisor will then visit site prior to our works commencing with the Method Statement/Risk assessment to approve the proposed safe system of work. Any amendments that maybe required the document will be revised, in the event of any unforeseen work an addendum will be produced and approved. Procedures in place throughout the life of the contract to continually review and monitor the safe system of work and continual communication with the workforce, subcontractors.

At the induction phase of each project all personnel must successfully complete the competence test specific to the Projects Method Statement/Risk Assessment, to ensure a thorough understanding of the project. During our works it is our continual goal to have zero impact on all stakeholders concerned and communication with neighbours is vital in order to complete a successful project with no issues.

In addition to our in house Health & Safety department we have external advisors that alert us to any legislation changes or impending changes. This allows Reddish Demolition to adapt with fluidity to any changes.

We require high standards of safety, health and welfare shall be achieved on all our sites. These standards begin at tender stage and continue through to successful project completion, ensuring all works are undertaken in compliance with current legislation and British & European standards.

Through our corporate membership of trade associations and professional bodies; supported by our continual improvement demonstrated through our BS OHSAS 18001, 14001 & 9001 accreditation, Reddish Demolition delivers strong safety performance and a safe environment for our clients and our employees.

Our approach to Health & Safety is founded on three key principles:

Embedding safety at the heart of our business requires strong and visible safety leadership. This includes investing in safety; having a robust structure of safety meetings at all levels in the business. The Managing director demonstrates his personal commitment by each undertaking safety tours on each project.

We implement proven procedures through a comprehensive consultation process to ensure they are effective and practical. Our safety management system is backed by a strong internal auditing regime to measure compliance: in May 2012 it was independently certificated to BS OHSAS 18001, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

At Reddish Demolition Limited we engage our workforce in developing and applying our safety management system. Reddish Demolition Limited continually invest in our workforce through training both in classroom environments and on site practical training.
