Health & Safety

Health & Safety CertificationEPS Site Solutions work closely with its health and safety advisors to maintain the highest health and safety standards at all times. This relationship is maintained via continuous training and improvement towards the prevention of all personal injury.     
We provide continuous training for management and operatives to maintain the best knowledge and understanding of H&S within their respective field of expertise.

All EPS Site Solutions operatives are CSCS trained and we ensure all managers and supervisors have SMSTS or SSSTS certification.

As part of our Health and Safety monitoring we employ a training matrix and arrange for operatives to attend specialist safety courses to suit either an individual’s particular discipline or a current project’s requirements.

Competent operatives, electricians and plumbers are JIB, City & Guilds trained and apprentices are trained through the JTL scheme.

Management and operatives are actively encouraged to record accidents and near miss incidents using nameless forms. These are reviewed and lessons learned, to develop Work Safe procedures to help prevent future accidents.

EPS Site Solutions carry out routine inspection and testing where appropriate to all electrical installations. In addition to this a quarterly periodic inspection and testing policy is carried out by our on site maintenance NICEIC tester.  All test results are recorded on NIC/EIC approved certificates and copies sent to client and site H&S files.

All Electrical plant and equipment is checked and tested before it leaves EPS Site Solutions depot, a record is kept of test results. Each item of equipment is recorded with a asset number and project log for equipment monitoring records.

All projects are overseen by our nominated Health &Safety Manager/ Supervisor to ensure that all practices and policies are adhered to at all times. We carry out on the spot Director site visits to make sure the highest standards are maintained.
