Safeguarding health and wellbeing every day
Safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our people, our customers and anyone interfacing with our operations is a top priority at Pickerings. Health and safety considerations govern everything from the specification of our buildings to the way they are maintained and handled and the way our sites and depots are organised and managed.
Safety in our depots
We adhere to our high health and safety standards at every one of our nationwide depots to ensure everybody is protected to ensure they go home safe every day. SafeContractor, Constructionline and SMAS Worksafe Contractor accreditations have all been recently attained to underpin our health and safety competence. Our safety record, just one RIDDOR reportable accident in the last 3 years, is the best in our industry.
Buildings designed for safe handling to reduce risks at site
We can bottom lift many units within our fleet to prevent the need to work at height when handling our buildings. Lifting restraints are used, by design, to limit chain movement and enhance the safety of our lifting procedures.
All vehicles and lifting accessories comply with all statutory regulations and are inspected and certificated accordingly. The Pickering fleet of lorry loaders is the most modern, and the safest, fleet in our industry with every failsafe device and extra safety features as standard specification.
