Adrian Flemming, a specialist in Health & Safety and Quality Compliance has joined the S&C Slatter team as Health & Safety Manager as the company continues to build and extend its in-house expertise and resources.
Health and safety is a concern across all UK industries, but it’s of particular importance within the construction industry.
Whatever the aspect of construction – demolition, building, refurbishment, roadworks – construction sites can present risks beyond most other industry workplaces. Whilst no workplace has zero risk, there is an obvious and major difference between the risks presented at a construction worker’s place of work, in comparison with, for instance, a finance or retail worker’s workplace.
This is why S&C Slatter takes its Health & Safety responsibilities to its staff, clients and the general public very seriously and has certificated accreditations with EXOR Gold, Safecontractor and CHAS. This commitment and the company’s policy of pursuing a path of continual improvement has directly led to this key appointment.
Adrian is a highly qualified Health & Safety professional with specific senior management experience within the construction sector and armed forces. He is a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (CMIOSH), Specialist Member of the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (SIIRSM) and Associate Member of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (AIEMA).
In addition to spending a good deal of time on S&C Slatter’s active construction sites throughout the country monitoring and ensuring H&S compliance, Adrian will be working with the in-house Pre-Construction team in preparing client submissions and pre-works risk assessments, method statements and constructions phase plans.
On wider quality-related strategy, implementation of our quality and environmental management systems ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 also comes under Adrian’s remit as QEMS Manager This again is an area within which he has a good deal of practical experience being a qualified Lead Auditor for both standards and ISO 18001.
S&C Slatter is a certified member of various PQQ and Compliance organisations including Constructionline Gold and Builder’s Profile and is the Independent Schools Association (ISA) Gold Preferred Supplier – Sports Construction including Artificial Sports Pitches.
