Samworth Brothers

                       

 

Project Overview

Hunter Safety Solutions have been appointed as Principal Contractor and Project HSE Manager at Samworth Brothers for works within their Ashton Green and Madeline Road sites during 2022.

Hunter Safety have completed the first of the projects with a fantastic safety record and zero reportable incidents.A number of high risk activities took place during the works which were closely monitored by our Site Manager, through the permit to work system and reviewing Risk Assessments and Method Statements. Hunter Safety managed the construction phase of the project, coordinating contractors throughout and managing the program of works on site.

A positive safety culture was set throughout the site, with two of the contractors receiving safety awards from Hunter Safety for constantly ensuring they went above and beyond to ensure this culture was adhered to.

Following the successful completion of this project Hunter Safety have now moved onto the project team supporting Samworth Brothers to ensure Health & Safety standards are met and adhered to on a separate project.
