Health and Safety

Health & Safety & Adventures of BandB! We are very excited to be Guest Blogging for HiViz Safety, Thank you for having us.

We are BandB Innovations, a family run Construction & Manufacturing business. The greatest advantage with this is that it gives us the opportunity to think outside the box, to be different and follow our hearts.

Please explore our website bandbinnovations.co.uk for an insight into our BandB world & the projects we are involved in. With over 20 years experience in the industry combined with our own in house steel fabrication business we offer a full design & build service. Oh boy! We love to design, our unique products & garden furniture offer statement, style & fun whilst being durable. Every product is Handmade here in the Cotswolds, pieces like our large Outdoor Mirror & ‘Woody’ Our 4in1 Wood burner are distinctive, quirky & created using the finest materials.

Our outdoor litter bin range offers a brand new concept, Bins that can be customized to their surroundings or your business needs. You only have one chance to make a first impression! Our first Litter Bin was create to fit into a woodland environment. We can match timber, materials and colours used in any surrounding features or street furniture. Litter bins that will blend into the environment and become part of the natural landscape or an urban city!

Our beautiful Bollards (Are you noticing a B theme here!) are hand turned from a single piece of timber. We designed a unique ‘safe to remove’ system for our removable bollard range, meaning no unsightly socket flap is required! At BandB we love to problem solve & this created a bollard that is both aesthetically pleasing yet still mitigates danger.

First & foremost we are a construction business involved in a wide range of projects from road building, foot bridges, playgrounds, anti-slip surfacing, new build and refurbishment projects. We are very lucky to design & build for Center Parcs & Forest Holidays. Whatever your plans let us help you design, build & fabricate a brighter future! We have come a long way on this incredible journey, learning and constantly growing through our ups and downs and tackling all the challenges and obstacles that come with running a business.

Which brings us to Health and Safety….something very important to BandB Innovations. We are Constructionline & CHAS accredited. As a smaller business we highly recommend being certified. This will ensure you are in line with what is required as well as protecting your Employees & your Business. What made us apply to be accredited? We were excited to tender for local authority work & in order to do so the process was much smoother & less time consuming being on the Chas & Constructionline registers. One search can show that as a business we are always up to date with training, equipment safety, insurance & all Health & safety requirements. You can apply online & from our experience we have found it very beneficial especially if you are interested in government backed contracts eg, hospitals, schools, councils. Our applications went smoothly however we had to put a Fire risk assessment in place which once we had done we were fully certified. Whilst they are primarily Health & Safety focused they also look at your environmental management. Don’t forget, Recycle…Recycle…Recycle! 3 of our employees have passed SMSTS, site management safety training scheme which is highly recommended on all construction projects. We also have employees with asbestos awareness training. Health & Safety requirements are very important especially in the construction & manufacturing industry. HiViz Safety will be able to help you on your way!
