With health and safety compliance now a major factor in all fit-out projects, the Spaceway Group, a leading UK provider of integrated interior space solutions, has taken the lead in ensuring all work undertaken for clients is carried out in accordance with the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 by appointing chartered health and safety consultants, Principal Safety.
The consultancy will provide Spaceway with support on all matters relating to health and safety including H&S Policy development, assistance with the compilation of the Construction Phase H&S Plan for projects and in house training. Principal Safety's advisors will undertake regular site visits to ensure that Spaceway's site operations are being carried out safely and in accordance with legal requirements and company policy.
“We already produce method statements and undertake risk assessment for each contract we undertake to ensure the health and safety of employees, customers and the general public”, says Malcolm Jeary, Managing Director of the Spaceway Group. “However, we decided we needed a specialist that could help us interpret the maze of legislation and provide us with workable answers to situations which arise before, during and after your construction projects.”
Wimborne based Principal Safety has many years experience delivering health and safety solutions to the construction and civil engineering industries and has considerable breadth and depth of knowledge of both sectors. The company's senior key people are qualified health and safety practitioners and members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). In addition its safety officers/CDM Coordinators all have a background of being on the tools and therefore have a practical understanding of the everyday problems faced by those who make up a project team.
“We are particularly pleased to have the opportunity of working with such a well respected company as Spaceway and look forward to assisting them to achieve their goals”, said Terry Wallington, Managing Director of Principal Safety. “Spaceway is a leader in the provision of totally integrated space solutions and has the same professional approach to the provision of their services as us”.
Established in 1976, Spaceway is recognised as one of the UK's leading providers of integrated interior space solutions for private sector businesses and public organisations. Located in Hampshire but serving customers across the South and Midlands, the company provides an integrated approach to space solutions that includes mezzanine floors, partitioning, suspended ceilings, storage systems, special structures as well as furniture and small parts storage.
