Tileex believes a trained operative is best placed to make the correct decisions in undertaking work safely. Training is provided for all aspects of the company’s operations, at every level. The company manages and maintains an all-inclusive training matrix to ensure all training is up to date and identifying any shortfalls. On-site, daily activity briefings are held each morning and weekly toolbox talks are undertaken.
Our health and safety monitoring is both proactive and reactive. All accidents, minor or otherwise are investigated and data recorded. Safety alerts and toolbox talks are issued based on any outcomes, and recorded statistics are used to set priorities for the following year.
Site inspections are regularly undertaken by our safety officer with reports issued and action points raised; these are followed up and closed out by senior management. Our site supervisors also undertake weekly site inspections and all of our sites are monitored and scored on health, safety and performance by senior management.
Tileex operates a near-miss reporting system; we see this proactive monitoring system as a major tool to engage the workforce, raising awareness in the working environment, where dangerous situations are identified and others unsafe actions are challenged to further improve safety in the workplace.
We want our workforce to choose to work safely not because they have to but because they want to, and achieve our ultimate goal to return them to their homes safely every day.
All of our workforce hold current Trade CSCS cards with appropriate NVQ levels. Supervisors and managers have either SSSTS or SMSTS certificates and manager NVQ levels. All supervisors and managers are face fit trained. All supervisors and managers are first aid trained. We also have PASMA training.
We also run a training program matrix that is continually being updated and monitored.
