Quality, Health & Safety


Surface Protection is dedicated to providing the highest possible standards of Quality and Safety for all of its customers. Our Quality policy is supported by a fully documented quality management system based upon the requirements of the International Standard for Quality, ISO 9001.

Health and safety is central to everything we do at Surface Protection Coatings Limited. It influences the way we think, the way we plan, and the way we behave and ultimately the way we perform. Our aim is to safeguard the health and safety of all those involved in or affected by our operations, and we pride ourselves on our efforts to maintain an incident and accident free workplace.

We employ a dedicated Health and Safety Advisor, Phil Lord, CMIOSH. Phil has fourteen years of experience in health and safety management. He is a Chartered Member of the Institute of Occupational Safety and Health after gaining the NEBOSH General and Construction certificates and the NVQ level 4 in occupational health and safety. Phil assists us with our health and safety management system and carries out site inspections, audits and training. This is continually reviewed and updated in response to new legislation, expected construction industry
standards, and our commitment to continuous improvement.

Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 we have the resources and skills to take on the role of Principal Contractor, and in doing so will plan, manage and monitor the project, develop the construction phase plan and site rules, ensure the competence of all appointees, consult with all stakeholders and provide a secure site with suitable welfare arrangements. Following a comprehensive review of our performance, we have developed and implemented an action plan designed to strengthen our health and safety culture and improve the performance of our employees and supply chain. Initiatives introduced include increased training at all levels, consulting and including our staff in the planning of works, and carefully measuring our performance.
As a result of these initiatives we can ensure that all of our sites are well organised with a good health and safety culture, thus enabling projects to be delivered in an efficient and successful manner.
