With many years of manufacturing & construction experience, this has shown us what a high risk or hazardous industry it can be. This is why we ensure maximum effort is put into developing and maintaining our approach to Health & Safety.
SMD Stockyards recognises the importance of the health and safety of other people who may be affected by our works, as well as our own employees. On each job we liaise closely with our clients to ensure that everybody is working to provide the highest possible standards of Health & Safety throughout the works. SMD Stockyards take Health & Safety issues very seriously, and as a result, invest a significant amount of time and effort developing our working methods to ensure all work is carried out in line with our current policies, and ensure all of our people do too.
All of SMD’S Site installation teams have achieved CSCS accreditation, including safety awareness training. FASET approved and trained safety net riggers.
We make it easy for our staff to understand their Health & Safety obligations by investing in on-going training as well as issuing all members of staff with our own Health & Safety information booklet.
We retain a full time Health & Safety Consultant who monitors our practices and delivers bespoke training as required. We are constantly reviewing our working practices and identifying ways to eliminate risk. As result of all of this, SMD Stockyards maintains an excellent safety record.
