Construction Health & Safety
Site Sage has provided a full Planning Supervisor service in accordance with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994, since 2003. We now provide a CDM Coordinator service under the revised Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007. The key aim of CDM2007 is to integrate health and safety into the management of the project and to encourage everyone involved to work together.
We have worked on projects ranging in value from £30,000 to £2 million. Current clients include property developers, architects, main contractors and property management companies.
As professional consultants within an industry where risks are often high, and the consequences of any error far reaching, we reassure our clients through meticulous attention to detail.
We believe in forming and maintaining close relationships with our clients, through regular communication. This ensures the steady flow of vital information, one of the key factors for effective CDM coordination. We see our role as one of catalyst, ensuring that risks that can be affected by design are identified, effectively assessed and where practicable controlled.
Our skill lies in meeting the necessary statutory requirements effectively, yet minimizing bureaucracy and unnecessary paperwork. We adopt an integrated team structure, which gives us the ability to group our resources and experience around large scale and more complex commissions.
In an industry beset by technical language and terminology, we ensure that our communication is clear and comprehensible. Having completed numerous courses within the Health and Safety Industry, and having had experience working on a myriad of construction projects, we are not only able to understand the intricacies of each project that we take on, but explain in plain and simple terms how the CDM Regulations will affect it.
Other services include site safety visits, which consist of a thorough inspection of the construction site, an inspection of the site files to check whether weekly checks and other company procedures in place are being adhered to by the construction manager. Our findings are summarised on a report which will indicate whether health and safety matters on site are acceptable or require remedial action. A copy is left with the site manager and a copy is forwarded to the company’s head office.
Consultancy Advice and Meetings
For one off advice, we are happy to attend site meetings, interviews on an hourly rate, however we prefer to give fixed rates for set tasks, as we are aware that most clients prefer cost certainty. Alternatively, for larger sites our services can be booked on a daily rate
