Health & Safety

Perpetually looking for new products, systems and innovative ideas to improve our health & safety procedures, we at GS Moore Roofing take Health & Safety very seriously.

It is our intention that all work be carried out in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions and all reasonably practicable measures taken to avoid risk to employees and others who can be affected by our works.

We ensure all staff meet minimum standards before going on site and have the relevant professional training for their trade through apprenticeships and specific manufacturer training programs. We believe by giving this high level of training, our employees have a good safety and behavioural culture and are fully trained on the roofing systems they use to carry out their jobs safely, and to a high standard.

All Staff must complete the certifications below, as a minimum through our in-house team and outside, professional bodies. Additionally, all must pass a CSCS test. All supervisors must pass a SSSTS. All management have SMSTS or similar, professional qualification through the Institute of Roofing and/or NVQ 4 in construction contracting operations with additional IOSH & Nebosh training.

It’s our policy that all employees have a medical and a D&A test on induction, and receive lead and asbestos medicals where appropriate as well as ‘Face fit’ tests. We also carry out HAV’s and skin care assessments on a regular basis. We believe by carrying out these simple and routine occupational health procedures helps promotes a safer, healthier and more productive work force.

We have been independently assessed by CHAS (Constructors Health & Safety assessment Scheme) and RISQS (Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme), which are annually re-assessed. We are also members of the Confederation of Roofing Contractors (CORC) and CIRAS (Confidential Incident Reporting and Analysis System) plus, we also hold a SMAS (Safety Management Advisory Services) certification.

Our in-house health & Safety team offers years of experience ranging from telecoms, oil & gas and construction industries. With this varied range of expertise, it has helped GS Moore Roofing commit to and complete many challenging projects with a good health and safety record. We also has access to consultancy companies if required, to help and advise on legislation and safe systems of work, making sure our clients are getting the best and safest service possible.
