Risk: What our Health and Safety means for you

Constructing temporary classrooms on school sites requires a skilled workforce with specific qualifications. We provide a tailored service to educational sites to make sure that all construction works are isolated and students are safe. It is of critical importance that we reduce the risk of injury to the lowest possible levels to minimise your liability and protect all stakeholders.  You can trust us, and this is why:

Compliance & Accreditations

Maintaining high professional standards is fundamental to the Fews approach. We have many health and safety, process and environmental accreditations including CHAS Elite, SafeContractor, Constructionline Silver, ISO9001 and ISO14001. 

DBS Checked Staff

All personnel involved in the construction process must undergo Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks to ensure a safe and secure working environment in proximity to students.

Flexible Delivery Schedule

The ability to deliver materials outside of school hours is essential to minimise disruptions to the ongoing educational activities and ensure the safety of students and staff alike. This requires coordination and planning to ensure a seamless construction process.

Health and Safety

There are a number of essential accreditations that are required to work in any environment.  Fews also operate on numerous nuclear sites which means a much higher level of training and accreditation.  There is more information on our accreditations and training programmes.

Visibility of Staff and Vehicles

All of our site staff wear branded hi-viz clothing and all of our vehicles are clearly branded for easy identification to ensure the safety of students and staff.

Use of Segregated Compounds

Fews always establish a compound to store materials and work safely away from staff and students.

Safe Public. Safe Crew. Safe You.
