Health & Safety

Bourne surfacing & civils takes the health & safety of operatives, contractors & the general public seriously.

With this in mind we have our own robust in-house Health and Safety system in place to protect all that may come into Contact with Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd when undertaking any works for our clients.

Tendering Stage

Ensuring the Safety of Everyone starts at our Tendering stage where an estimator will visit site to assess your site needs whilst liaising with our clients our estimators assess any risk/hazards that maybe present on site. Any risks/hazards are captured on our Tender stage risk assessments and help ensure that nothing has been missed. The data captured in these Tender Stage risk assessments is then fed back to our Health & Safety Manager who then utilizes that data to tailor Method Statements and Generic Risk assessments which are then sent to our clients.

Risk Assessment & Method Statement (RA/MS)

Our Generic Risk Assessments are further backed up with a comprehensive set of Task Specific Risk Assessments that have been devised from the wealth of industry specific experience gained by Bourne Surfacing & Civils Ltd in it’s 17 years trading history.

Our method Statements document the methodology of how works are to be undertaken, site contacts, site location, manpower requirements, plant & vehicle requirements, tool requirements and any COSHH/Environmental data that may be relevant to the site where works are to be undertaken.

Our risk assessments using a scoring system out of 25-1 where 25 is High Risk and 1 is low risk. Our risk assessments then link into our task specific risk assessments that are tailored to The Surfacing Industry.

Task Specific Risk Assessment

These Task Specific Risk assessments are a set of Golden Rules that must be adhered to and helps empower our operatives with the correct tools to make decisions on any necessary actions that need to be enforced to ensure health and safety remains paramount whilst undertaking any works for our clients.
