Site Set-Up & Supervision

This is an essential component of any construction-related project. RB Plant often act as a one-stop resource for many clients, taking care of all elements from high-level regulatory compliance such as CDM right down to arranging welfare facilities for sub-contractors.

Clients benefit from RB Plant’s seasoned expertise in this area which results in adhesion to programme, all parties complying with their Health & Safety obligations, and a strategy to deal with unforeseen issues.

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • CDM compliance.
  • Site planning to ensure there is sufficient footprint for sub-contractors to locate temporary cabins and have adequate welfare facilities.
  • Arranging Permits-To-Work (PTW). Critical to this area is dialogue between the site resident operations team and the sub-contractors carrying out the task. We will insist all parties:
    • Have a discussion at the locality where the work is to take place
    • Are appraised of local hazards such as other personnel working at height
    • The equipment to work on has been fully isolated with physical disconnections.
    • Report any changes of work scope immediately and stop the existing task.

This approach is crucial to minimising risk and not deviating from the work scope agreed by all parties.

  • Producing Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS), or checking sub-contractors RAMS to ensure all hazards specific to the site and the task at hand have been rigorously assessed and protective measures implemented.
  • Chairing meetings and taking minutes.
