Health & Safety


We, the staff and management of P. Spains, have adopted a proactive approach to Health & Safety in the workplace.

Our first priority when evaluating projects is to ensure that the Health & Safety function is effectively put in place and managed on an ongoing basis.

Our evaluation procedure involves;

  • Physical Walkthrough with client representative to assess potential risk areas.
  • Formulate a safe system of work consulting with P. Spains staff, Client representative, sub-contractor representatives and industry professionals
  • Safe system of work incorporated into method statement and communicated to all project personnel and monitored via regular on-site tool box talks.

We continually up-date our Safe Operating Procedures and adapt to our work practices, making use of latest technologies and systems to help make the environment we operate in together a safe place to work.

P. Spains have set up a safety committee with staff and management represented to monitor the Health & Safety function and make any recommendations to further enhance and develop Health & Safety in the work place.
