VKE’s chosen fields of operations; Groundworks, RC Structures, Structural Alterations and Hard Landscaping, are probably the most demanding in the construction industry when managing Health & Safety. We therefore place huge importance on getting it right and ensuring all our operatives have the correct equipment together with the correct training and awareness.

As a company standard all our operatives hold CSCS qualifications as a minimum. We then offer additional training for plant operation, slinger/signaller, working at height, traffic marshalling, asbestos awareness, confined space, harness use etc.

All our site operatives benefit from regular Toolbox Talks which are carried out companywide on a weekly basis. These Toolbox Talks cover all aspects of the daily working environment and are also used to relay information regarding specific site conditions and specialist tasks. In addition to our comprehensive training all our works are planned and assessed using project and task specific Method Statements and Risk Assessments along with COSHH and HAVS Assessments.

To ensure we keep our workforce safe and that we conform to the latest legislation we also employ the services of an industry leading H&S Consultancy; All Day Safety Services Ltd. Having an external H&S partner we can be sure we are able to educate and train all our staff to the highest standard and be the first to implement all new industry changes, giving our clients peace of mind with the knowledge we are pro-active with our approach to H&S.
