Prior to any scaffold structure being erected by Abscaff Ltd, a site survey would normally be carried out and a Risk and Method statement prepared.
Depending on the size and type of the project our operatives will conduct a toolbox talk and go through a rigorous safety review before any work commences. Only once the Supervisor is satisfied that all risks that can be eliminated have been, and all operatives have been made aware of any remaining hazards work will commence.
Abscaff Ltd adheres to a strict code of conduct which states that:
• The safety of our clients and our staff will not be compromised and will always be number one.
• Clients needs are met through effective and efficient project management.
• The quality of our equipment will not be compromised.
• All equipment is of EN74 and British Standards approved.
• Staff training is of paramount importance.
Abscaff Ltd firmly believes in training our workforce to a very competent level. Our scaffolding operatives hold either an advanced or basic CISRS Scaffold card and all trainees undergo their NVQ at the National Construction College. Our workforce are fully trained and hold the appropriate certificates for the work duties that are placed upon them from using the cranes on self-loading vehicles, driving forklift trucks and First Aid.
Abscaff Ltd firmly believes that for the company to continually to be a success, we have to continue training our operatives of all age levels. One factor of the training being a success is the modern Apprenticeship scheme which we run with CITB. Each year Abscaff look to employ a small number of highly motivated apprentices whom will eventually become highly qualified scaffolders.
