Accidents at work are most common in the construction industry and consequently the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) focus a lot of their energy upon this sector. Due to insurance requirements, Principal Contractors are becoming much tougher with their sub-contractors with regard to safety at work.
Wilkins Safety Group specialise in helping small construction firms win business. They employ us to satisfy safety at work legislation documentation and provide evidence of a safety culture.
Small business owners cannot afford a full time health & safety manager nor do they have the time to get involved in detailed legislative requirements themselves. Outsourcing your health and safety function is the only cost effective way to stay within the law and become known by your principal contractors as a low risk. Thus increasing the likelihood of your company winning more contracts.
Wilkins Safety Group are also qualified to act as CDM Coordinators under the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007 and consequently can also help construction firms who have difficulty writing a construction phase health and safety plan, method statements etc.
Many of our construction clients also rely on our regular site visits as a way to monitor safety on their sites.
We also provide safety training that is approved for grants for CITB registered companies.

- Principal contractor’s site safety plan
- Sub-contractor’s site safety plan
