Health and Safety

Health & Safety

We work in the most demanding of environments; health and safety is the rock on which our operation is built.

From the precision of Aston Martin Formula One Team to the stringent requirements of HS2, our operations and health and safety teams work closely together to provide a seamless and safe working environment for everyone.

We deliver using our own fleet of vehicles and use our well-trained rigging teams to build every structure. Our list of accreditations demonstrates the level of commitment we devote to staff, client and public welfare around our structures and build sites.

From our overall policies to method statements for different structure types, risk assessments for all activities and documented inspection systems of our equipment, you can be sure that our tried and tested systems can be relied upon.

Our Structures

All of our structures conform to wind loading stipulations (BS6399) and special care is taken by us to heat structures in winter, to prevent snow loading.

The materials used in our structures are fire retardant to current British Standards (PVC flammability testing to BS7837) – Structural steelwork conforms to BS5950 and structural aluminium to BS8118. Linings are flammability tested to BS5867 and all electrical equipment is Portable Appliance Tested (PAT tested) annually.

Our People

Fews staff are amongst the most experienced, well trained and qualified in our industry. 

We invest heavily in gaining the accreditations that allow us to work in the most challenging conditions, and this extends to all Fews employees and contractors.

Every person has a personal training plan designed to ensure that they have the necessary skills to complete their work in the most efficient and safe way possible.

Our comprehensive training matrix ensures that all our personnel from Senior Management through to office staff and  marquee riggers receive the very best training available.

This is a very fluid part of our Health and Safety training and Fews are always looking at ways to improve the skill base of their workforce. Our continuous improvement philosophy is ingrained in all our staff
