In line with the rest of the construction industry Peter Cox Ltd takes its responsibilities for health and safety extremely seriously, both for its own employees, for fellow workers on building sites, for customers and for the general public.
A copy of our Health & Safety Policy is available on request together with details of the organisation and procedures for carrying this out.
In addition the company ensures compliance with all the relevant regulations, particularly those concerned with pesticides, COSHH, manual handling and working at heights.
Peter Cox is registered with the CHAS and Safe Contractor schemes and hold a Link Up certificate for work on railway property.
All technicians receive health and safety training and are encouraged to use correctly the PPE with which they are issued. All carry CSCS cards.
Work plans are subject to site specific risk assessments and method statements which are available to employers and main contractors, together with MSDS sheets and COSHH assessments for products being used.
Safeguarding the Environment
Peter Cox Ltd is committed to conducting its business in a manner that is consistent with protecting the environment and to complying with all relevant UK and EU legislation and regulatory provisions.
As part of this commitment we seek to ensure that the products we use are regularly reviewed and re-designed as necessary to keep in line with the latest technical advances as well as guidance from the Health and Safety Executive.
For over 40 years Peter Cox damp proofing systems have used low risk, water based formulations. We also introduced solvent free remedial timber treatment fluids many years ago and today use specially formulated micro emulsions which permit re-occupation of treated areas within 1 hour.
We also examine alternative technologies which may reduce environmental impact – such as the use of heat to eradicate woodworm infestation and dry rot attack without resorting to chemicals.
In summary our mission is to use materials, equipment and procedures that pose the least risk to the environment on both its own and its clients premises.
