Blog The importance of health and safety in the workplace Health and safety is an important element of any construction project, including shopfitting work, and this needs to take into account the safety requirements of contractors, employees, customers and visitors. At AK Shopfitting we have a strict health and safety policy in place that ensures we employ safe working practices and take our responsibilities seriously. There are a number of factors that need to be considered when establishing and working on a site, so that the right health and safety practices are adhered to. A risk assessment will flag any potential hazards that are present, so that preventative measures can be employed or ways can be found to protect workers and others who may be in the vicinity. It’s essential that all work equipment used on the site is appropriate for the required work and that it is maintained properly, to guarantee it’s safe to use. All workers on construction sites need to have undergone the correct training to understand how safe working methods can be established and enforced. Health and safety starts from the bottom of an organisation and it needs to be everyone’s responsibility to put these methods into practice. An extensive recruitment process means that employees have the correct knowledge, skills and abilities to carry out their work safely. At AK Shopfitting all the site managers on our projects have industry recognised qualifications, including a Site Management Safety Training Scheme qualification. Communication is crucial in implementing health and safety measures and both workers and clients need to be fully aware of these. With everyone working together to prevent accidents, construction sites will be safer places. Health and safety is at the heart of everything we do and we continually update our information and policies in line with any changes to legislation, to enable us to provide a professional service to our customers at all times.
