Download Our Health and Safety Statement
We currently hold our up-to date CHAS Accreditation
Health and safety is one of our top priorities, be it our employees, the public or scaffolding users. Thats why we work hard developing our heath and safety standards. Our hard work can be seen by us meeting the requirements of CHAS year on year alongside our track record of perfect onsite safety.
CHAS assesses applicants on:
Health and safety policy statement;
Their organisation for health and safety;
Their specific health and safety arrangements to a standard acceptable to our buyers and to others.
Highways and Pavements
Acorn Scaffolding is approved by Somerset County Council and North Somerset Council for working on highways. This we means we can be licensed to erect scaffolding on payments and roads once an application has been made the Local Highways Authority.
We believe in looking after our employees and their futures. Our operatives hold CISRS cards ranging from Part 1 and Part 2 to Supervisor and Advanced Gold Card Scaffolders.
We use the DBS Checking service to ensure the safety of our clients and the public is cared for. All of our scaffolders and labourers are checked at the enhanced level.
Our drivers are trained with SRC courses including; Driver essentials; Working Time Directive; Chapter 8 highway operative and supervisor.
All of our scaffolders are trained in Asbestos Awareness, Working at Heights and Working in Confined Spaces.
IPAF training allows our scaffolders to operate powered access lifts for areas where traditional scaffolding will not.
