HEALTH & SAFETY
CHOK Construction are proud of their Health and Safety record and have always treated H&S with the same attention and management as areas such as finance and project management.
“The breadth of skills CambridgeHOK has in-house is really exciting as it enables us to give clients the holistic advice we feel is necessary for them to be comfortable that they are getting a fit for purpose project.”
Finance Director, CambridgeHOK
CambridgeHOK Construction, where H&S is paramount.
In 2016 CHOK employed their Health and Safety Manager who is a Chartered Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, with 20 years of experience in many industries.
CHOK Construction recognises that H&S is not just for the building site but is an integral part of the company and should be adhered to from the boardroom to the site.
On occasions sub-contractors are used who undergo a vetting process which is based on a questionnaire assessing their suitability to carry out the tasks being asked of them. Where the Sub-Contractor in question does not have all the above, CHOK Construction will work with the Sub-Contractor to assist them in reaching the required standard if possible.
As part and parcel of our site safety all site managers carry out a recorded weekly site inspection and the results are forwarded to the H&S Manager. In addition, the H&S Manager will carry out unplanned site inspections on a regular basis. The findings of any of the above are discussed in the quarterly H&S meetings.
All work undertaken by CHOK Construction is covered by comprehensive Risk Assessment and Method Statements.
CSCS: CHOK Construction are committed to having a trained workforce, the company are continually enrolling employees with the Construction Skills Certificate Scheme (CSCS) with the aim that 100% of the construction workforce carries CSCS certificates.
In addition to the above, the company will ensure that any employee who requires training will receive it to enable them to carry out their tasks in a safe manner, such as IOSH managing Safely, SMSTS and SSSTS. Any operative which operates plant or use workplace equipment will have received the appropriate training.
