Health & Safety

Health and safety for flooring contractors is always a challenging environment, our trained site management team must consider many types of risk, including type of property, other tradesman on site, client employees, and many other factors.

Here at Olivers Contracts, we consider all aspects of Health and Safety to be vital. We provide clients with detailed method statements and risk assessments. Regular site visits as work progresses, to determine any changes in conditions that may indicate new problems to address.

High standards of safety are now expected in the commercial sector; however we apply the same standards to our domestic installations as well.

Our site managers have responsibility for health and safety on site. They undertake regular tool box talks with the fitting teams, and ensure that operatives wear appropriate PPE, and are fully aware of any potential hazards that may be present in the areas they are working in.

All portable site equipment is regularly PAT tested to ensure complete safety for our fitters. In addition where possible we use lower hazard materials including low volatile glues and adhesives.

Our service always includes a full survey to discuss your options, measure up and provide a detailed quotation. If accepted, our experienced team will then carry out a risk assessment looking at potential problem areas. The majority of risks relate to our own fitters injuring themselves, but others relate to your employees and customers, and we may require further meetings with you to work out the best solution.
