Make no bones about it - health and safety on every one of our jobs is paramount and we take it very seriously.
All of V.S.F’s approved installation teams are regularly engaged in asbestos awareness training in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (CAR2012) in which they are fully demonstrated, explained to and given the necessary Health & Safety literature on how to deal with asbestos containing materials including the removal procedure, safe packaging of removed sheets through to the disposal. They are advised on all of the CORRECT safety clothing including Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). We also provide them with information of all of the products we install which are covered under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH).
All Approved Installers are also trained in accordance with the Working at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR 2005) and correct Manual Handling techniques in line with Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992 (MHOR1992).
V.S.F, over the years, working alongside experts within the field of Health and Safety have produced a robust, efficient and effective Method Statement (including Risk Assessments) that places installer and customer safety right at the heart of it. As a continually growing company, we are continually looking for ways to update and improve our working methods to ensure that we are the market leaders not only in garage refurbishments but also the market leader for installer and customer safety.
Our dedicated Health and Safety Team have years of industry knowledge and experience, so we can guarantee that you will have no queries regarding the safety and quality of our work.
We take the safety and health of our staff seriously and encourage them to use all the advice given.
