Having the right health and safety plans in place before beginning work on your lift or escalator project is essential to ensuring your employees, your clients and their customers and the general public are safe and protected.
Construction phase plans
If you’re planning a construction project of any size, regulations require that you have a Construction Phase Plan (CPP) in place to reduce health and safety risks. Not only is having a complete and thorough CPP a legal requirement, it helps principal contractors plan and manage any specific health and safety arrangements they need to implement and communicate them to relevant parties throughout the project.
If this is your first time creating a Construction Phase Plan or you need to make amends to an existing plan, our team at Elevating Safety Solutions are on-hand to offer expert advice and assistance.
Risk and method statements
Risk assessments are the most important part of effective health and safety plans by considering hazards and devising effective methods to help minimise accidents and ill health. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires that all employers assess and manage the risks their employees could face while carrying out their duties at work.
For vertical transportation businesses, detailed risk assessments may also be required for additional hazards such as working at height and in lift shafts. With years of practical industry experience under our belts, our team has extensive knowledge of the health and safety precautions required during lift and escalator installation and repairs and is able to produce specific risk and method statements to ensure your business is compliant.
