Quality and Safe Installations

Risk Assessment Management

As part of managing health and safety within your business it’s important that you control risks within your workplace to include when suppliers and contractors are asked to work on site.

By choosing OKEL as your preferred supplier you will have reassurance in knowing that we understand the importance of assessing workplace risks and will work closely with you in the time leading up to the installation to ensure the right safety measures have been put in place to reduce the risks of work place dangers to both employees and visitors to site.

Risk Assessment and Method Statement

Prior to installation a lead engineer will visit site to approve all works and complete an assessment of potential risks associated with the installation.

A detailed risk assessment and supporting method statement will be produced for your project and forwarded to our customer for sign off, detailing all risks identified and measures to be put in place or rules to adhere to that will reduce these risks.

Local Site Induction / Welfare Arrangements

On Day 1 of works commencing OKEL request that a representative from within your organisation conducts a local site induction for our engineers. 

The purpose of the induction is to make the engineers fully aware of any local risks, hazards and /or rules or procedures they must adhere to whilst working onsite.

It is also necessary that engineers have access to welfare facilities whilst working on site unless OKEL have been briefed in advance that this is not possible.

Asbestos

For premises that were built prior to the year 2000 OKEL will request a copy of the building’s asbestos register if at any stage throughout the installation our engineers identify risks associated with asbestos. 

Based on the findings within the register OKEL may request that a 3rd party asbestos specialist are called upon to provide specialist advice and guidance.
