Colt service & maintenance: Health and Safety

Always putting health and safety first.

All Colt service and maintenance engineers undergo yearly health and safety training course which consists of asbestos awareness training, working at height training, first-aid training and rescue training.

They also undergo onsite checks and random H&S checks, on-site training, new product training and tool box talks.

The working at height and rescue training are key elements for our workforce as many of the smoke ventilation systems we encounter are installed on the roof.

All our engineers have the very latest PPE equipment including full harnesses, fall restraint lanyards and fall absorbers which are regularly inspected both by the engineers and the team leaders.

For roofs where there may be roof lights or the distinct possibility of being in fall arrest, our engineers are trained in and have in their possession one-man rescue kits, to enable an engineer to lower a stricken engineer to the floor.

All works are carried out to the site-specific RAMS which are issued before any job commencing.

All our engineers have IPAF certification along with PASMA for mobile access towers. We also have external training for temporary fall arrest systems.
