All works are planned to incorporate the latest technologies and techniques to reduce the risk of harm. Safety Plans, Method Statements and Risk Assessments are developed and reviewed for all works.
All site staff carry relevant CSCS cards and are trained in manual handling, noise and vibration, PUWER, working at height and face fit testing.
Our Quality Management System ensures that all work sare independently checked and tested prior to handover. Our induction and personnel checks ensure each operative is qualified prior to works.
Test and inspection sheets are completed for each level of the installation (i.e. first fix, second fix). All systems are commissioned by highly qualified engineers. Any defects are tracked and improvements suggested.
Watkins monitors and aims to reduce our impact on the environment. Monitoring includes waste, CO2, energy and water usage. We have reduced our energy use recently with solar panels to all offices and switching vehicles to more efficient models.
We are proud to be in partnership with both Mates in Mind and The Prince’s Trust as part of our commitments to helping better the industry and wellbeing of our community.
Mates in Mind is a leading UK charity raising awareness and addressing the stigma of poor mental health. The Prince’s Trust is a youth charity that helps young people aged 11 to 30 get into jobs, education and training.
