Our team has experience of working on domestic and commercial construction projects and fully understand the risks posed by the works that are undertaken through the life cycle of these projects. These projects often take place in reasonably small areas near other dwellings or commercial properties, meaning these sites are often busy and there is an increased risk of harm to members of the public as well as the operatives working on site. Salus Safety Solutions can provide professional and cost effective support to clients working in these industries.
Solar projects are fast paced short duration projects which on the surface pose very little risk compared to other construction projects. The reality is that the speed of the projects and the fact that solar projects in the UK tend to use multinational workforce all increase the risk of incidents. The Salus Safety Solutions team have experience of working in the solar industry and have the knowledge to work in this fast-paced environment whilst developing and communicating legally compliant practical solutions.
PORTS AND LOGISTICS
The Ports and Logistics sectors are fast paced client focused industries and as such pose many challenges in their daily management. Taking this into account organisations in these industries need quick thinking, practical but robust advice. Salus Safety Solutions are in an ideal position through their knowledge and experience of working in the Ports and Logistics industries to provide this support whilst ensuring works are undertaken
safely within the boundaries set by health, safety and
The utilities industry involves the design, construction and operation of the electrical, gas and water networks. Salus Safety Solutions’ team have gained significant experience through working on the construction of utility projects such as sub stations, cable routes, transmission lines and water treatment plants. These all have the potential to be high risk projects whether it be due to the existence of mobile plant, high voltage electricity, high pressure water and live public traffic. The Salus Safety Solutions team have the knowledge and expertise to deal with these and the other risks posed by utility projects.
The Salus Safety Solutions team have a lot of experience of working at all stages (including operations) of onshore projects. Onshore windfarms present many challenges but most specifically the risks associated with working at height, lifting operations, electricity and mobile plant. All our team specialise in finding practical solutions that keep personnel on site safe whilst ensuring legal compliance.
The offshore wind industry generally involves projects which cover a large working area and involve high risk working activities. These projects are made more complex due to the working environment and during the construction phase the number of personnel, contractors and vessels involved often make it challenging to implement and manage health, safety, environmental and quality standards. Salus Safety Solutions team have experience of all stages of the project and at a time when reducing costs is important to the industry; Salus are an experienced cost-effective solution to all your health, safety, environmental and quality requirements.
ELECTRIC CAR CHARGING
There are now more than 35,000 charge point connectors across the UK in over 13,000 locations – that’s more public places to charge than petrol stations, with around 7,000 charge point connectors added in 2020 alone and the biggest increase was in the new ultra-rapid chargers. The electric vehicle charging point industry is growing rapidly as the world begins to move away from petrol and diesel powered cars and closer to a reliance on electrical vehicles. Salus Safety Solutions have used their experience of the utilities industry to support our Clients who are designing, installing operating the electric vehicle charging points that are being installed across the UK.
Battery (energy) storage is expected to play a key role in the UK and Europe’s future Smart Grid and Salus Safety Solutions Ltd are already involved with the leading developers in the UK. This new contract now means that Salus Safety Solutions are now working on battery (energy) storage projects with a capacity in excess of 180MW.
We are proactively supporting Clients in identifying and solving the challenges associated with this innovative technology. One of the biggest challenges we have faced is breaking down the preconception that these projects are simple plug and play installations when the reality from a health, safety and environmental perspective is very different. The most significant risks that need to be considered and ultimately managed centre around the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH), The Control of Substance Hazardous to Health, Confined Spaces, Fire, Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres. We are currently working hard with our Clients to ensure that a proportionate and robust risk management policy is adopted on each project.
“Paul and the team at Salus have been an integral part to our recent new build and retrofit projects, providing expert and knowledgeable support on all aspects of health and safety in Construction. The standard and speed of service has been excellent and we look forward to working with the team on future projects.”
