Site Entrance

We recognise and embrace our responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and are fully committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all our employees (including external partners, customers and visitors).     This is paramount in everything we do!     The company-wide Health and Safety ethos that emanates from Directors down to site operatives has enabled an exemplary level of safety and teamwork to be achieved. We have demonstrated our commitment to maintain and improve our H&S management systems by achieving accreditation in BS OHSAS 18001:2007.

We comply with the British Standard Code of Practice for Decommissioning, Dismantling and Demolition Services – BS6187:2000 which recommends good practice methods for demolition (partial and whole) as well as decommissioning of sites, buildings and structures, taking into account safety, health and environmental issues – particularly with regard to:

  • The proper and effective management of the decommissioning, dismantling and demolition process
  • Maintaining structural stability – using temporary support where necessary
  • Managing deliberate structural collapse

This Standard requires Ron Hull Demolition to

  • Identify and establish responsibilities during all phases of the dismantling, decommissioning and demolition process
  • Acquire adequate knowledge of the site – including its former uses
  • Apply appropriate environmental management
  • Successfully manage Health and Safety hazards
  • Carry out initial and continuous Risk Assessments in order to plan decommissioning work accordingly
