We’re firmly committed to reducing risks through diligent and thorough health, safety, environment and quality (HSEQ) procedures.

We employ a full-time HSE and training manager to ensure that all systems and procedures run smoothly. Every individual is fully trained in this area and committed to a safe working environment.

Safe working procedures

We carry out HSE discussions with the contract team before each project, no matter what its value, to assess any risks and eliminate any HSE issues. Our scaffolders are fully trained and qualified, and supervisory staff carry out regular inspections and audits on every contract. We’re constantly striving to improve our quality standards, maintain safe working practices and encourage good lines of communication with all our employees.

We’re fully compliant with all relevant health and safety measures. We’re proud to be:

  • CHAS approved
  • FPAL verified by 1st Point Assessment
  • Achilles verified by UVDB
  • Constructionline member
  • PICS Consortium member
  • Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) registered company

The commitments listed in our HSEQ Policy Statements are in addition to our basic obligations to comply with the McDonald Scaffolding (Services) Ltd standards as well as applicable laws and regulations for the areas which we operate in.
