Health & Safety, Environmental & Quality

We consider safety in the workplace as our top priority. It is central to our ethos, and we are committed to providing a safe working environment for everyone. 

We ensure our operating procedures are continuously monitored and remain in line with our health & safety policy.

Our ISO accreditations provide international recognition for the way we deliver and maintain our services and put us in an elite category, placing us on a level of excellence shared by world-wide businesses. Each one demonstrates our commitment to environmental, health and safety and quality management and our desire for continual improvement so that we are able to offer outstanding customer services.

We’re also proud to be CHAS Premium Plus and SafeContractor accredited. It means we have undergone extensive assessments, and it reflects the high standards and procedures we have in place. These accreditations also provide reassurance to our customers that we can handle health & safety correctly, and they remove the need to undergo costly and time-consuming assessments for each contract. It gives our customers peace of mind, knowing they are working with a company that has successfully passed a rigorous evaluation.

Alongside our health, safety & quality measures, we ensure all our site teams are qualified to the highest industry level. Our site operatives and managers are qualified BOSIET, CCNSG and/or CSCS safety passport holders.

All high-level work is conducted by highly experienced IRATA (Industrial Rope Access Association) & IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) competent personnel. We stringently follow guidelines set out by IRATA and work in accordance with comprehensive ICOP guidelines and The Working at Height Regulations 2005. All of our contracts are subject to robust IMS Safe System of Work (SSOW) documents.

Each contract we work on is individually appraised and evaluated by IMS management for health and safety prior to any work commencing. All of our contracts are subject to internal safety assessments and audits. In the case of large contracts, they are independently assessed by an external NEBOSH and IOSH consultant to alleviate any conflict of interest.

Before commencing work on any contract, we participate and adhere to the following SSOW documentation which is compiled by our experienced management team:

Before every task, we deliver a Tool Box Talk which includes full engagement across the work party. If a member of the work party isn’t happy or instructions aren’t clear, then work will not commence and their concerns will be raised to management immediately. The Tool Box Talk includes a briefing on the method of work, associated risks, rescue plan and their role of responsibility.
