At Bailey International, we pride ourselves on the fact that our Health & Safety Policy is central to all of our day to day operations.
Our stringent Safety Management procedures combine with over 25 years’ experience in the steeplejack trade to ensure that all works we carry out conform to the most exacting UK and International Health & Safety standards, both legal and industry best practice.
Our Contract Managers and Site Supervisors work closely with our Health & Safety Coordinator to ensure that detailed risk assessments - including control methods to reduce assessed levels of risk - and method statements are in place on each and every single contract we carry out before works even begin, conducting site visits if necessary.
At the start of any contract, all team personnel are briefed by the Contract Manager and Site Supervisor on risk assessment and method statement, including identification of site specific hazards, fire and emergency procedures, first aid and welfare, site rules, permit to work, and confirmation of relevant client safety procedures.
Once a contract is underway, we strictly monitor all operatives and operations to ensure maximum compliance with Health & Safety regulations and planned safety and control measures.
All employees are Safety Passport trained, CSCS and CCNSG qualified, and CITB-registered, qualified and time served.
Our specialist steeplejacks and engineers undergo regular training and assessment in Health & Safety. Every year we insist that all staff - not just our engineers and steeplejacks - complete a Refresher Induction training programme to ensure all health and competence information is up to date, and to provide an opportunity for staff to share and review best practice.
These are supported by our Tool Box Talks scheme, where specialist staff and external experts give talks and facilitate discussion on relevant health and safety issues. We run between 20 and 30 of these talks each year, and attendance is mandatory for all personnel involved in carrying out contract work.
