On Site Safety
PPV Group Ltd has a Duty of Care to ensure we work safely on all sites and that work carried out by sub-contractors and specialist service providers is also conducted in a safe manner. Due to this we ensure that our own Risk Assessment and Safe Systems of Work are in place and sub-contractors are required to produce their own documents. PPV Group Ltd has a Permit to Work system which is used for our own staff and sub-contractors working on PPV Group Ltd’s behalf.
PPV Group Ltd has systems in place to monitor for Health and Safety non-compliances and take action to protect the Client and PPV Group Ltd; this action can be up to and including operatives being asked to leave site and/or their employer being asked to not send those operatives to PPV Group Ltd sites in the future. More serious infractions may warrant immediate exclusion from site and this is at the discretion of PPV Group Ltd project management team, Health and Safety Manager or the Client. PPV Group Ltd monitors the performance of specialist service providers and where implementation of their Health and Safety practices is found to be non-compliant they may be excluded from PPV Group Ltd approved supplier database at the discretion of PPV Group Ltd senior management.
