How do we ensure the health and safety of our projects?

ODAPS Ltd has a pro-active approach to Health & Safety issues. Our policy is to actively encourage and engage our clients, staff and sub-contractors in Health & Safety awareness as we consider this to be fundamental in their protection and that of the public.

Within the construction sector works must comply with CDM 2015 Regulations. All of our project managers have numerous supplementary qualifications to ensure our compliance. These include: NEBOSH Construction Certificates, NEBOSH Fire and Risk Management Certificates, SMSTS training, ONCs and HNCs in building alongside CSCS black cards.

All project managers and designers hold a NEBOSH general certificate too, ensuring each of our projects are carried out in the safest manner practicable.

Before all works are carried out our designers will undertake a design risk assessment so high risk activities on site can be mitigated or removed. The design risk assessment considers the occupation and maintenance of the office, and the welfare of all occupants.
