The Health and Safety Executive undertook an inspection of basement projects in RBKC and Hammersmith and Fulham in which 127 sites were inspected and enforcement action was taken on 62 sites.
5 of London Basement’s projects were visited and received positive feedback – a clear sign of the approach London Basement has to health and safety in what can be challenging conditions.
Following on from our January post, on the 28th February we were pleased to welcome three representatives of the Health & Safety Executive to our offices, where, at their request, we gave a presentation of our Health & Safety systems on site, with particular reference to temporary works. We then took them on a tour of some of our projects so that they could see our systems in practice.
The feedback was extremely positive and our visitors were thoroughly impressed with our site set ups and safety systems and hopefully they will start to make some of our practices the standard amongst all basement construction specialists.news
