health & safety

YPP Groundworks & Civils Limited take our Health & Safety responsibilities extremely seriously. The wellbeing of our workforce, other contractors on site and the general public is of paramount importance and we strive to achieve zero harm on all projects.

In order to achieve this aim we ensure that every member of the team has the appropriate training for their role, from company director down to labourer. The company itself is certified as a Constructionline Gold Member and has Acclaim Accreditation as a member of their health and safety assessment scheme.

We invest in our workforce to ensure that they have the correct training to remain safe, whilst completing all works to the highest standards. Every team member is CITB accredited, holding either a CSCS or CPCS with the relevant categories/endorsements.  In addition, we provide staff with the PPE required to complete their works and a kit bag in which to keep it safe.  

Many of our team have also undertaken appropriate health and safety training courses, including SSSTS, SMSTS and First Aid. Other qualifications held by our team members include First Aid Training, Manual Handling, Abrasive Wheel, Confined Spaces, Streetworks and Asbestos Awareness.
