Health, safety and the environment are given prime consideration in our operations and it is the policy of PBS to continually maintain its performance in this area.
Our business has a strong health and safety culture resulting in an excellent safety record. This reflects just how much time and effort we invest our staff and systems.
Our Health, Safety & Environmental Management System (HSEMS) has been developed to meet the requirements of OHSAS18001 & ISO14001 specifications.
The organisation’s HSEMS is used to develop its health, safety & environmental policy and manage its risks. It includes the organisational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources for establishing its policy and objectives and for achieving its targets.
Each of our employees has a legal obligation to take reasonable care of their own health and safety, and for the health and safety of other people who may be affected by their acts or omissions. Full details of the organisation, responsibilities and arrangements for Health and Safety are contained within our Health and Safety Policy.
PBS is committed to ensuring the minimum of H&S risk for our employees, our clients employees and for members of the general public. As such, all of our Operational employees undertake a mandatory Health & Safety induction. Our field staff are provided with an induction training plan which includes training such as Safe Working on Ladders and Steps, Mobile Towers (PASMA or PASMA Advanced), Asbestos Awareness, Risk Assessment Workshop, Mobile Elevating Working Platforms (IPAF), CSCS as applicable to trade and Manual Handling Techniques. Please note this is not an exhaustive list of training provided but a selection we implement as a bare minimum to new employees where necessary.
PBS also have a pro-active approach to on-going training both internally and externally and provide in-house systems tailored to meet our operatives and clients needs as well as any legislative requirements in health and safety. We constantly review skills to meet the Company’s objectives and future plans. All employees are encouraged to share the responsibility for identifying training needs in order to meet current and future work objectives that will benefit them, PBS and our clients.
