Construction Services

Health and Safety is as important to your company as quality and production. Safety needs to be recognised as an equal to efficiency, economics and productivity. PFP Safety Services assist both small and large construction companies with their duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM). We particularly like to assist small businesses who are unable to afford a full time health and safety manager, to become recognised by both Clients and Principal Contractors.
Initially, we carry out all the work for your company. Then over a period of time through the coaching and training that we offer, you will be able to carry out most of the work and we will act as safety advisors to your company.
With accidents being most common in the construction industry, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Insurance companies and Principal Contractors are becoming more stringent on Contractors and Sub-Contractors to prove their health and safety competencies. To win contracts you will have to be able to show that you have all the health and safety resources in place, to meet the ‘Core Criteria’ of CDM Regulations 2007.
PFP Safety Services can assist your company to be recognised within the industry by gaining Contractors Health and Safety Scheme Accreditation certificate (CHAS) or SafeContractor. Many of the larger construction companies have stated that they will only accept Contractors that are CHAS accredited and whose employees have achieved the appropriate CITB, site safety scheme accreditation.
The services we offer include the following:

  • Act as your appointed competent person.
  • Liaises with other duty holders.
  • Review existing method statements and risk assessments.
