Steelwork Installation Process
Despite the fact that 90% of our product value is created in our offices and workshops, our site performance is where we are most visible.
Throughout this stage, all projects are carefully controlled by our Site Managers. Well before we start on site, a Method Statement is developed including a detailed description of the work procedure, together with the necessary risk assessments. All erectors are fully briefed and committed to the Method Statement before setting foot on site. This is reinforced with regular toolbox talks. We accept no compromises on safety and our Health & Safety Managers carry out routine inspections of all our sites.
Billington shares the aims of the UK Contractors Group (UKCG) in pushing for higher levels of training for site workers. Billington look to have a pro-active approach with safety initiatives and in recent times have embraced initiatives such as secondary guarding devices for MEWPs and are working towards "fit to work" certification ahead of UKCG requirements.
