We take account of the “General Principles of Prevention” in all design work that we undertake. We have a policy of carrying out risk assessment at the various stages of the design and construction process while at all times bearing in mind the implications any design decisions will have on maintenance carried out safely in the future. Whilst this is very important to the end user it also protects our business insurance.
