Health & Safety

At Docherty Scaffolding, safety is our main priority. We strive to continually adopt and adapt working practices to not only meet but exceed the requirements of the latest legislation. Whether it is our own workforce, the contractor’s working on the scaffolding, or members of the general public. We provide risk assessments, safety policies, and method statements.

Over the last 10 years we have seen a significant change in the construction industry, none more so than in the scaffolding sector. There has been an increasing demand for companies to meet the highest health and safety criteria to protect from accidents and harm to their own employees, the workforce, and the general public.

We openly share our health and safety information and expertise with our clients and work with them to improve all-around performance. As part of this, we have implemented a complete Safety Management System to help ensure that the company is fully aware of the continuously changing requirements of the industry.

Training, qualifications, and experience have never been more important. Our experienced team of scaffolders are fully regulated by the Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme (CISRS), carry CSCS cards and are qualified to the relevant industry standard.

Our health and safety policy is updated every year as regulations and laws are becoming tighter and tighter, especially in the scaffold industry. We are continuously trying to stay ahead of the game to ensure we are using the most up-to-date procedures and we have the best safety equipment on the market.

Our health and safety policy can be sent to any prospective client please don’t hesitate to ask.
