HEALTH AND SAFETY
Pearson Holland Management Services

As all other reputable organisations we regard the safety of our operatives and other colleagues related to our works as of paramount importance. We have spent several weeks compiling our company policy to meet with the statutory authorities and indeed our own stringent guidelines on all aspects of Health and Safety regulations.

We have appointed Pearson Holland Management Service Limited as our supervisors to ensure the operatives within our business are well informed and aware of all the hazards within their working environment.

Our documents are very precise and detailed to cover all aspects of our working habitat and we constantly monitor the ever changing climate of the Health and Safety at Work Regulations to ensure when required the relevant information is updated. A copy of our company Health and Safety policy is available on request.

Contractor Health and Safety Assessment Scheme

We are members of CHAS and have been for 6 years.

Assessing suppliers Health and Safety competence is usually a lengthy and time consuming process. Suppliers can sometimes meet one buyer’s Health and Safety standards but not another. Being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers. CHAS assesses applicants:

  • Health and safety policy statement;
  • Their organisation for health and safety;
  • Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
