Health and Safety Benefits
The use of precast components reduces the number of operatives in attendance on site that would normally be casting these products in-situ and consequently reduces the duration that these operatives will be in attendance for.
The use of precast components moves any residual manufacturing Health and Safety risk off the site and into the factory, whereby it can be managed in a more consistent manner i.e. the pouring of wet concrete from a skip suspended from a crane on site open to the elements is now suspended beneath a gantry crane in an enclosed environment thus removing the site variables.
Centrum Precast has won the Silver Award in the prestigious RoSPA Occupational Health and Safety ‘Achievement Awards’ 2016, a scheme run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
The award recognises Centrum’s commitment to continuous improvement in accident and ill health prevention at work, which it has championed for many years placing it at the core of its business strategy. The award sends a strong reassuring signal to our clients about the culture and behaviour of Centrum Precast. Health and Safety is a priority within Centrum, as we believe it contributes to our on-going business success.
