Each sub-contractor must ensure that their employees are adequately trained and experienced to carry out their work safely.  To this end, they must ensure that specific hazards likely to be experienced on site whether notified by others or discovered by themselves are notified to their workforce and the Company, together with any precautions to be taken and local rules to be observed.

The policy and rules of the Company are that all persons working or visiting their sites will wear suitable approved P.P.E (helmets, safety footwear and high visibility vests minimum) at all times.

Task Lighting

It is our responsibility to ensure that suitable task lighting is used by yourselves during this period to ensure a safe working environment.  Please ensure that you have adequate lighting set up and in use throughout the day.  Ideally this will be free standing wide based plasterers lights or the tri-pod type.  Small head mounted LED lights will not suffice.

Please be aware that your eyes will adjust throughout the day to the reduced lights so what appears fine to you will not to a site supervisor or Health & Safety inspector entering the property from outdoors.

If you do not have any forms of task lighting please contact either myself or Gary to discuss.

We do not provide task lighting but need to be aware of the contractors who do not have it.

Stair Platforms

We have recently had an incident on one of our Taylor Wimpey sites where an operative of ours was found on an improvised working platform consisting of a plank across a stairwell. He was caught by Taylor Wimpeys Health and Safety consultant

R G Wilbery.  Such action is classed as a Category A offence.  As you can see from the attached letter the implications of this are serious for all.

As per Taylor Wimpeys policy for Category A’s the Managing Direct of Wimpey North West and the Construction Director of the region had to leave their office in Warrington immediately and travel to site to participate in the investigation.  Our supervisor for the site, had to also leave our office were he was undertaking the weekly wage run to meet the two Directors.

The offending operative who had in the past committed the same offence and as a result was sent on a Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SSTSS) also had to wait until all parties had reached site for the investigation.

There was no excuse offered for this offence, the Oxford Stair Safes provided by Taylor Wimpey were available for use.  As a result Red Rose Drylining will now incur a £1000.00 administration fee for the investigation as detailed in the attached letter.  This fee will be passed directly on to the offending operative and all monies due to him will be suspended until the outcome of the investigation reaches its conclusion.

As you can see this was a serious incident and puts all future works with one of our main clients at risk and ultimately everyone who works for Red Rose Drylining at risk of loss of work. Please do not think that this is the only Category A offence possible. Any activity that puts site operatives at serious risk is classified as a Category A.  Activities such as altering scaffold, removing temporary hand rails from stair wells, damaged electric leads, drill casings etc may all result in the same consequences.

Please learn from this individuals costly mistake and not your own, be vigilant on our behalf regarding such matters, if a handrail is missing report it to the site management as you may ultimately have the finger pointed at you.

Going forward we have decided that any sub-contractor found in breach of serious site health and safety rules, such as no drip tray for generators, ladders and planks on stairwells etc will be written to at a cost of £25.00 per letter. I hope you see this step for what it is, which is to maintain us as a Company as a leading Drylining contractor for industry therefore keeping all in future work in these difficult economic times and beyond.
