Health and safety isn’t just about having documents in place, it’s about reducing risk and following safe practices. Creating H&S Documents is an important process in understanding what risks may be present when carrying out a specific task, yet at the end of the day, a document is just words on a piece of paper. What really counts is getting the information in the documents to the people who are carrying out tasks. Instruction, training, informing and enforcing safe working practices are all an essential part of keeping staff safe.

A common risk to M&E tradespeople is asbestos exposure and this is often inadvertently disturbed because tradespeople are working on properties with out an asbestos register, and because asbestos containing materials may have been painted or over clad, making them hard to spot.

Other common risks include falls from height, slips, trips and falls , and manual handling incidents.

Dangerous substance exposure goes hand in hand with being a plumber as they work alongside human waste, bio hazards, mould and chemicals.

Hearing loss is common and using a percussion drill in a confined space with no carpets or furniture to absorb the sound, compounds the issue.

Risk or hand and eye damage is always present as is the risk of burns and smoke inhalation when carrying out hot works.

As with all companies that operate within the construction industry, M&E companies must follow all of the Acts and regulations set out by the government. As well as these mandatory rules, there are also voluntary ones which are sometimes enforced by principal contractors or management teams of CDM sites.

Risk assessments are the main legal requirement for every task a company carries out and are seen to be incredibly important in the construction industry due to the high accident rate. The company carrying out work is responsible for the safety of employees and anybody else that may be affected by the work, so it’s essential to assess a task for risks. If potential risks are found, it is then essential to introduce safe working practices and control measures that will eliminate or reduce the risk to an acceptable level. Failure to do this means that an employer has failed in their legal duty of care and would be responsible for any injuries a person might suffer whilst carrying out a task.

Company H&S policies are a legal requirement if a company employs five or more people. However, most principle contractors wont let another company be on their approved supply list without this policy in place, regardless of the companies size.

Method statements that list how to carry out a task using safe working practices are not a legal requirement, but are usually a mandatory requirement when employed by larger companies.

COSHH assessments are a legal requirement, and all substances at the workplace should have the relevant product data sheet used to create these assessments prior to use.

Giving training and instruction to employees is a legal requirement. Imagine how dangerous it would be if new drivers no longer needed training and instruction on how to drive a car. The same is true with tasks at a workplace. If a worker uses a ladder yet hasn’t been instructed on how to use the ladder safely, the question that must be asked is, ‘Why did the employer ask an inexperienced person to work at height without training or instruction?’.

Training has become cost effective and easy to manage due to the availability of online courses, and the four courses that all construction workers should take are:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Working at height
  • Manual handling
  • Asbestos awareness

Instruction is as important as training and is often as simple as reiterating company policy and safe working practices to staff. Ensuring that they know any risks that have been identified and the control measures introduced to create safe working practices.

Instruction is the best way of getting staff to know and follow the information listed on method statements and risk assessments.
