HEALTH + SAFETY
Building sites and industrial premises are dangerous places and our highest concern at all times is the safety of our staff and members of the public with whom we are in contact. Dirtbusters are mindful of our duty to protect our staff, the employees of others and the general public from any and all potential dangers.
We are fully committed to a continuous health and safety framework that neutralises the risk of accidents at our workplaces.
Dirtbusters stringently complies with all Health & Safety legislation. Our employees undergo a comprehensive health and safety training program and are registered with the Safe Pass programme. In addition, we have qualified 'cherry picker' licence holders, First Aiders, Employee Safety Representatives and a designated company Health and Safety Officer.
Dirtbusters Safety Programme
Our safety team completes individual Risk Assessments and Method Statements for all contracts. This enables us to identify and assess all potential risks and formulate strategies to best neutralise these risks.
Risk Assessments and Method Statements are available to all clients, these will detail how we propose to carry out all activity while working on their sites and premises.
Detailed Safety Data Sheets for chemical use in the industrial cleaning processes will also be supplied to all clients.
All staff safety training at Dirtbusters is monitored at both monthly safety meetings and weekly site meetings. We employ external consultants to regularly appraise our safety procedures and ensure that our comprehensive health and safety program is up-to-date and most importantly effective.
