As a responsible contractor, Hartland Construction is committed to construction site health and safety and safe working practices. As a result, we place health and safety as our top priority. We maintain compliance with all HSE and health and safety related regulations relevant to the construction industry. As well as being approved by the SSIP scheme and certified by CHAS, we are fully compliant with all CDM 2015 Regulations.
As a building contractor, we are required to demonstrate that our employees have the skills, knowledge and experience to carry out duties on site safely while not compromising health and safety.
All our employees are fully qualified to perform the tasks that they are required to carry out. Every employee holds the relevant CSCS Cards determined by their skill set.
Cognitia is our training partner for both vocational and professional qualifications. We ensure all employees regularly partake in top-up training courses, especially health and safety related training courses.
The initial stage of any contract involves thorough risk assessments of the construction work involved. This includes method statements for all general works, which are prepared in-house by senior staff including Directors and Site Managers.
Our duty to become fully compliant with the relevant health and safety regulations begins as soon as we are awarded a contract. Risk assessments are the initial stage of on-site health and safety. They are essential for health and safety compliance to safeguard both construction site workers and the public.

We are thoroughly and comprehensively backed by Solutions IMS. They support us in compliance management in the construction industry.
