Health & Safety Experts at Stenball

Full Health and Safety accreditation and advice

For anyone contemplating a build or refurbishment it is a legal and moral requirement to have competent health and safety advice. In line with the Health and Safety at Work Act and other legislation, Stenball employees have the necessary skills, knowledge, training and experience to carry out their role.

Some clients may have their own advisors in which case our Health and Safety lead will work with them to agree the right plan. Others will have limited or no expertise and will need total guidance throughout. Our approach is very flexible, although our Health and Safety advisor will always be involved to ensure the very best procedures are developed, implemented and monitored.

Stenball also oversees and takes responsibility for any subcontracted work, such as ground work, joinery or roofing, streamlining the process and providing total reassurance.

Health and Safety training

All our site managers are health and safety trained, sitting intensive practical and theory-based CITB exams and undertake regular refresher courses.

Numerous health and safety challenges have been overcome on our many diverse projects. They include hanging a life-size horse (upside down) in the ballrooms of a series of Bar & Beyond nightclubs – and overseeing the risk-free fit-out of Thaikhun restaurants (using reclaimed street furniture and bric-a-brac from Thailand). At the Weyside Inn in Guildford piling was erected to shore up the riverside, all transferred from special barges that took four days to reach the pub.
