Making sure our people go home safe every night is of paramount importance at Geeves Scaffolding. We also think doing a job well means doing it safely. We regularly work in high hazard industries where safety management is crucial – including oil and gas, rail, dairy and large scale commercial construction.
Comprehensive induction of all staff and subcontractors followed with a written asessment to ensure good understanding. New staff sign a code of conduct and are issued quality PPE gear.
Geeves prioritises regular training and up-skilling of staff – in 2014 and 2017 Geeves Scaffolding was awarded the Skills Organisation Training Company of the Year Award. We put more staff through training than any other scaffolding company.
We have a comprehensive risk management system which is clear, easy to use and effective. It includes detailed Task Analyses and a Risk Register that is regularly reviewed and updated. We provide effective supervision – including daily site and crew audits.
Our Safety Handbook fits in the back pocket and ensures our staff have key safety information at their fingertips.
Regular random and targeted drug and alcohol testing is a key element of our risk management policy.
We use a professional rehabilitation company to ensure that our staff get immediate and targeted assistance to ensure a safe and early return to work.
