Residential Blocks – Who is responsible for Health & Safety

Protech Property Solutions Ltd is committed to the health and safety of our employees and anybody affected by our work or presence on site.

We are aware of our legal obligations and that failure to meet the requirements of the law could have serious consequences for us, whether an accident takes place or not. We know that it is our responsibility to take care of our staff and to make sure they work safely and we take this moral and legal responsibility very seriously.

Providing a safe and healthy working environment for not only our staff but for all people, who come in contact with our operations, is our highest priority. Our Operations Manager, who is responsible for evaluating the risks to health and taking the actions needed to remove or reduce those risks, conducts Risk & COSHH Assessments on all of our sites and products.

All our employees have access to our company health and safety policies, risk assessments and staff training modules, as well as having access to a COSHH folder at site level, which contains the safety data sheets for all chemicals used. Listed on each data sheet is information concerning work practices, these are a basic quick glance list of instructions on the Health & Safety precautions, instructions on use, storage and disposal notes.

Also provided for each of our client’s premises is a health and safety pack. This pack contains written risk assessments, for every task carried out within the cleaning operation and covers tasks from dusting to using ladders.

Our Operations Manager and site supervisors manage the day-to-day Health & Safety issues, ensuring all employees work in a safe manner whilst performing and carrying out their duties. With each site having a nominated ‘competent person’ and or a qualified first aider we can embrace and promote high health and safety standards throughout our company and our operations.

We continually monitor our performance and any trends at monthly H&S meetings, where we have been able to prevent and minimise site accidents involving personnel, thus producing a safer working environment.

We value health and safety highly and have obtained a number of accreditations to show our dedication to this.
