Health and Safety
Artel Scaffolding Ltd have always been committed to safeguarding the health, safety and welfare of its employees and others who may be affected by our works.
Artel Scaffolding have a dedicated Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Department (HSEQ) to take care of the day-to-day needs of the business. The department which is led by our Health and Safety Director, Mick Bradbury, carries out independent reviews on a weekly or fortnightly basis, dependent on the demands of the programme.
The HSEQ Department will visit the sites on a regular basis, discussing new legislation and its effects on the works with the site team. Company policies and procedures are also disseminated via safety alerts, site memos and toolbox talks, so that the sites are always in touch and up to date.
Elevation is our ART, but
Safety is our Nature.
At Artel we operate a culture whereby safety is ‘first’ nature. We do this through:
- Weekly safety report to clients
- Broadcast safety alerts to all sites and operatives
- Dedicated Health & Safety Manager
- Topical and relevant Toolbox Talks
- Comprehensive training programme
- 100% CSCS (including fulltime office staff)
Artel Scaffolding were new to Rydon, and their first contract with us was for our social housing scheme in Lewisham known as "Heathside and Lethbridge".
A mixed tenure of 138 units that comprised of 4 Multi story Blocks, Artel set a very good standard of work and safety practices from the start, right the way through to the completion of the scaffolding programme.
Demonstrating good standards of safe working systems such as "Working at Height", "Progressive Erection and Striking", " Neat system of stacking materials"," working co-operatively with other on-site contractors".
Weekly safety inspections was carried out via Artel Scaffolding Health & Safety Team and presented to us during our progress meetings
