It is essential to highlight that working on properties built before 2000 carries a significant risk of disturbing asbestos-containing materials. Plumbers and gas fitters, in particular, must be vigilant about this possible risk, as asbestos is a common material used for fire-stopping and heat insulation. In the past, it was standard practice to use asbestos cement backboards for boilers, line airing cupboards with asbestos cement panels, and spray asbestos insulation on heating pipes.

It is critical to avoid disturbing asbestos, as the release of particles can go unnoticed by victims, and the consequences can be devastating. The severity of disturbing asbestos and the reporting methods can deter tradespeople from reporting accidental releases. Therefore, taking all necessary precautions and following the correct procedures when working with asbestos is essential.

Apart from the dangers of asbestos exposure, plumbers and gas fitters are also at risk of developing occupational diseases from exposure to solvents, adhesives, biological waste, and lead from removing or working with old pipework. Additionally, these professionals are exposed to construction hazards such as hand-arm vibration, falls from height, working in confined spaces, manual handling, repetitive strain injuries, hand injuries, eye injuries, and hearing loss. Taking the necessary precautions to prevent these risks and ensure safety while working is crucial.

Over the last decade, health and safety regulations have become increasingly intricate and challenging to navigate. Submitting risk assessments is just the beginning, as it now entails complying with many policies and requirements that seem never-ending. Many of these policies are legally mandatory, while others are requested by the organisations you work for. Legal requirements include risk and COSHH assessments and a company's H&S policy if more than five people are employed. Method statements are not mandatory, but most principal contractors require them. Organisations with an approved supplier list generally require other documents, such as a lone-worker policy. Our package is designed to provide essential H&S documents, including risk assessments, method statements, and COSHH assessments. However, please note that we do not offer a company H&S policy as it is a standalone document that outlines your company's approach to H&S. It is not specific to any particular job or tender.

It is crucial to train staff members in any work environment properly. This training should not be limited to formal education, such as college or apprenticeships, but should also include instructions relevant to the job at hand. For instance, it is imperative that tradespeople are aware of the need to isolate a supply before cutting through a gas pipe, or else a hazardous situation could arise. Similarly, providing instruction and training to those working off ladders is essential, as accidents can be avoided by ensuring that these individuals know how to use ladders safely.

When introducing new working practices, it is vital to communicate and instruct the relevant tradespeople before they carry out a task. This will ensure they know the latest practices and the reasons for their introduction.

Training can take many forms, including sit-down chats, toolbox talks, videos, online courses, handouts, or visiting training providers. However, the most important aspect of training is conveying new and relevant information to the workforce before they undertake any task and keeping a record of the training provided.
