Health & Safety
Over the years the health and safety statutory regulations have changed enormously and no longer is it solely the responsibility of the contractor to make proper provisions on a project.
In 1994 the statutory Construction, Design & Management (CDM) regulations were introduced, placing very specific health and safety regulation duties on both the employer and the contractor. During recent years we have also seen these obligations be extended to the Disability and Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA).
Workplace Concepts works with you to ensure that all parties understand their respective legal obligations as set out by the Health and Safety Executive.
Relocating your company can be a headache. Employees and equipment need to be moved with minimum disruption.
Maintaining business continuity during an office relocation project is vital. It's so important that we have developed a comprehensive checklist to help you ensure that nothing has been overlooked. Working to carefully laid office relocation plans, we can help your business to avoid costly mistakes and any interruption to your productivity.
A successful office relocation project will see your staff sitting in their new office environment on that first morning with all equipment, including your IT infrastructure, in place and working. We've made that happen time and time again.
