Health & Safety

Safety is the most important factor when considering moving any load.  Keith Rhodes takes all precautions as reasonably practicable to reduce the risk of accidents occurring to Keith Rhodes operatives and client personnel when on site.

As standard, prior to arrival by Keith Rhodes operatives, a pack containing job specific information will be supplied. This will contain a risk assessment, method statement, manual handling assessment, PPE assessment, checklists and drawings for setting out our transport/cranes etc.  Any client specific H&S documentation will be in addition to all standard Keith Rhodes documentation.  We will also provide details of insurance and our Health and Safety Policy.

All equipment is stringently checked prior to use and replaced as necessary.  All lifting gear and equipment have regular recorded checks. Certificates accompany all on site equipment and an additional copy of these can be supplied if necessary.

In addition to drawings supplied within the H&S pack, Keith Rhodes can offer ‘one-off’ site drawings, outrigger pad calculations and technical information of equipment.

All Keith Rhodes equipment used on the job will have accompanying technical specifications supplied as PDF documents (this is only if requested).
