Health and Safety

Health and Safety

As a specialist tower crane business, we have made health and safety our highest priority – for our customers, our suppliers and our own employees.

We work in a high-risk sector at height, on challenging construction sites so best practice in health and safety is at the core of everything we do. We ensure this by employing the very best employees, who are experienced in what they do and trained to the highest levels.

Our management team is able to advise, support and assist with health and safety, ensuring teams on the ground are consistently meeting expectations. To maintain our excellent safety record, our team undergoes regular training and our equipment is subject to routine inspections and maintenance.

 

Our Health and Safety Statement

The following is a statement of the organisation’s health and safety policy in accordance with Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974.

It is the policy of Bennetts Cranes Limited to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all employees working for the company and other persons who may be affected by our undertakings.

Bennetts Cranes Limited acknowledges that the key to successful health and safety management requires an effective policy, organisation and arrangements, which reflect the commitment of senior management. To maintain that commitment, we will continually measure, monitor and revise where necessary, an annual plan to ensure that health and safety standards are adequately maintained.

The Managing Director will implement the company’s health and safety policy and recommend any changes to meet new circumstances. Bennetts Cranes Limited recognises that successful health and safety management contributes to successful business performance and will allocate adequate finances and resources to meet these needs.

The management of Bennetts Cranes Limited looks upon the promotion of health and safety measures as a mutual objective for themselves and employees. It is therefore, the policy of management to do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent personal injury and damage to property. Also, the organisation aims to protect everyone, including visitors and members of the public, insofar as they come into contact with our activities, from any foreseeable hazard or danger.

All employees have duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and are informed of their personal responsibilities to take due care of the health and safety of themselves and to ensure that they do not endanger other persons by their acts or omissions. Employees are also informed that they must co-operate with the organisation in order that it can comply with the legal requirements placed upon it and in the implementation of this policy. Bennetts Cranes Limited will ensure continued consultation with the workforce to enable all viewpoints and recommendations to be discussed at regular intervals.

The organisation will ensure a systematic approach to identifying hazards, assessing the risks, determining suitable and sufficient control measures and informing employees of the correct procedures needed to maintain a safe working environment.

We will provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe places and systems of work, safe plant and machinery, safe handling of materials and substances, the provision of adequate safety equipment and ensure that appropriate information, instruction, training and supervision is given.

We regard all health and safety legislation as the minimum standard and expect management to achieve their targets without compromising health and safety.

What's been happening in the world of Bennetts cranes...

It has been a pleasure to work with Bennetts and a welcoming change to deal with a crane supplier that delivered what was agreed and when. The operators where very good and the crane always worked, plus all services, equipment checks and records along with reviews were done on the date required. Thanks again and if my next scheme has a need for a tower crane I will be in touch.

I'd just like to pass on our thanks to the de-rigging team for a job well done. Our saddleback came down safely and quickly and I would like to say the lads are a credit to Bennetts and I will be more than happy to recommend you on any future projects.
