Health and Safety

Orthos Projects Ltd. has an excellent health and safety record and places client, public and employee safety before any other considerations. The latest and future working requirements are under continuous appraisal by our internal health and safety officer.

Orthos Projects Ltd. is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of its clients, the public, staff, employees and sub-contractors and it will, so far as is reasonably practicable, establish procedures and systems necessary to implement this commitment and to comply with its statutory obligations on health and safety. It is the responsibility of each employee, sub-contractor and client and any other person to familiarise themselves and comply with the procedures and systems on health and safety.

While Orthos Projects will take all reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of its clients, employees and sub-contractors, health and safety at work is everyone’s responsibility. It is the duty of each employee and sub-contractor to take reasonable care of their own and other people’s health, safety and welfare and to report any situation which may pose a serious or imminent threat to the well being of themselves or of any other person. If an employee or sub-contractor is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job or use specific equipment, then it is the employee’s or sub-contractors duty to report this as soon as possible to their supervisor, appointed site contact or the health and safety officer. 

Orthos Projects will provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment with the objective of minimising the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses. The Company will pay particular attention to:

  1. Maintaining the site working area in a safe condition, providing adequate facilities and arrangements for welfare at work.
  2. Providing a safe means of access to and egress from the working area.
  3. The provision and maintenance of equipment and systems of work that is safe.
  4. Arrangements for ensuring safety to health in connection with the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances.
  5. The provision of such information, instructions, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure the health and safety at work of its employees, sub-contractors, clients and other persons.

Orthos Projects also recognise its duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to the working site area, including sub-contractors and temporary workers, as well as any other person with authorisation, to visit the site and members of the public who might be affected by the Company’s work operations.

Safety training is an integral part of an effective health and safety programme. Every employee and sub-contractor is trained to perform their job safely. All employees and sub-contractors are trained in safe working practices and procedures. Training includes instruction on the safe use of equipment and tools provided, whether the property of the company or hired in plant and equipment for the duration of the contract.

Apart from trade and professional qualifications, our personnel and sub-contractors will have the following safety and competence training corresponding to the tasks and duties to which they are appointed, which is actively maintained and updated:

  • CDM Coordinator (Construction, Design and Management)
  • CPCS Appointed Persons (lifting operations) to manage our own crane lifts
  • CITB Site Safety Plus qualified Supervisors
  • CSCS cards for all site operatives
  • CCNSG Safety Passports
  • CPCS qualified Telehandler drivers
  • Rigging, slinging and banksman training
  • IPAF licences (access platforms)
  • PASMA (portable scaffolds)
