Maintenance Duty of Care

Protect Employees and Site Visitors

You have a legal obligation and responsibility to protect your employees and site visitors from accidents. Our ethical and responsible maintenance services help to mitigate risks and prevent accidents from arising. Our expert team carefully carry out all of our services to ensure that appropriate measures and actions have taken place. All of our grounds maintenance services will help to:

  • Prevent slip, trips and falls.
  • Provide you with all the relevant paperwork to keep your premises compliant with Health and Safety legislation.
  • Keep your site tidy, professional and clean all year round.

Protection of Habitats and Species

We have an environmental duty of care to provide protection to a range of plants and wildlife, particularly protected species such as newts. In these situations, we would provide mitigation services which would typically include special measures. For crested newts, we would include exclusion fences and pond creation or restoration. We will carry out ring-fencing to ensure that the newts and other wildlife are not near machineries and other works. If this still doesn’t ensure their safety, we will look to translocate them to another suitable area.
