Health & safety in scaffolding
We take health and safety extremely seriously. We adhere strictly to all industry safety standards, of course, but consider this to be a start point, not a destination.
Our excellent health & safety track record
ASM staff are proud of our 100 per cent clean record, with no lost-time accidents. We are heavily committed to ensuring the safety of our staff, our customers’ staff and visitors and everyone connected with a project.
We have invested in a computerised health and safety management system, which helps us manage not only safety but also the quality of related documentation.
Each scaffolder is:
Each scaffolder is CISRS registered and has achieved Advanced Scaffolder status or Basic Part 1 and Part 2. Each one carries a CISRS photo ID card.
Qualified to CSCS standard and is CITB approved
Ongoing health & safety training
To us, health and safety extends beyond regulation and compliance. It’s a way of life.
All our scaffolders are on payroll (we do not use sub-contractors). Each member attends regular ‘toolbox talks’ – training and refresher sessions addressing issues such as handling asbestos; working in confined spaces and at heights; working with the public; slips, trips and falls; electrocution and overhead power cables. We also employ a CMIOSH qualified health and safety consultant.
