Adamson Construction are Gas Safe Registered – Top 5 Safety Tips

Gas Safe Register, which replaced CORGI as the gas registration body in 2009, is the official list of gas engineers who are registered to work safely and legally on boilers, cookers, fires and all other gas appliances.

By law all gas engineers must be on the Gas Safe Register.

Adamson Construction are pleased to confirm that they are Gas Safe registered through their new Contracts Manager Karl Vernum.

The main focus of the Register is on improving and maintaining gas safety to the highest standards. Gas Safe Register make sure all gas engineers on the Register, (of which we are one of over 120,000), are qualified to work with gas. They work to protect the public from unsafe gas work through:

• A national investigations team tracking down illegal gas workers
• Regular inspections of Gas Safe registered engineers
• Educating consumers and raising awareness of gas safety
• Investigating reports of unsafe gas work

The latest research has revealed that almost five million people across the UK are putting themselves at risk from carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, fires and explosions by employing illegal gas engineers who aren’t properly qualified.

 

To keep your gas project safe, follow Gas Safe Register’s top tips:

1. Only employ a legal Gas Safe registered engineer when having gas work carried out.

2. ‘Trust the Triangle’ and always ask to see your engineer’s Gas Safe ID card. Make sure you check the back of the card, which will state which gas appliances they are qualified to work on.

3. Know the symptoms of CO poisoning; headaches, nausea, breathlessness, collapse, dizziness and loss of consciousness.

4. If you smell gas or think there might be a gas leak, call the free 24-hour national gas emergency number immediately on 0800 111 999.

5. If you suspect that someone is an illegal fitter or are worried about gas work carried out, please contact Gas Safe Register.

The Adamson Construction Handicap Stakes (Class 3) Race – Royal Windsor Racecourse

We also had national coverage with a feature in the Racing Post, details on the mobile app, articles within a number of newspapers as well as the race day being televised. In addition to this, our Managing Director, Adam Treacher, was invited to choose the best dressed horse and award the winner of the race with their trophy.

The most common disruptions reported by schools during construction projects and how we work to resolve these

education-adamson-construction

With over 25 years of construction experience in the education sector, at Adamson Construction we have a deep understanding of the constraints and compliance issues that can arise within your education facility.

We have listed below the most common disruptions reported by schools during construction projects and how we work to resolve these as part of your project:

Dust and dirt

Problem: Apart from being particularly uncomfortable, airborne dust and dirt can give rise to medical complaints leading to staff and pupil absences.

Resolution: We can liaise with you prior to the work commencing the options of locating classrooms which require natural ventilation away from construction activities and ensuring the constructing and maintaining of seals in affected areas can help to minimise the ingress of dust and dirt. In some cases, it may be appropriate to arrange additional cleaning for the school during the project.

Noise

Problem: Health and Safety regulations ensure that noise levels will not be hazardous to health, but they may still be extremely distracting.

Resolution: Where construction works are in close proximity to the school, we will agree with you before the work commences whether we will need to be excluded from undertaking certain noisy activities during particular periods such as exams.

Distractions from increased traffic, both vehicular and personnel

Problem: Continuous distractions from construction works.

Resolution: In order to avoid continuing distraction, we always ensure site activities are appropriately screened and discuss options as to whether it may be possible to locate particularly sensitive school classes and activities away from the main site access and construction works. This decision will be agreed between yourselves and us prior to the work commencing.

Frequent changes to access points and circulation routes

Problem: The need to advise school users of continuing changes in access arrangements can be disruptive and resource intensive.

Resolution: This will be considered and agreed between you and ourselves during the planned phasing sequences of the construction works.

Planned and unplanned interruptions to water, gas, power, ICT services

Problem: Loss of gas and power supplies interrupts lesson times

Resolution: Prior consultation and contingency planning with ourselves and staff about the consequences of a particular service failure or disconnection, will allow the school to better manage these situations in the event they occur.

Reduced playground space, loss of playing fields and car parking

Problem: The loss of amenities during the construction process is often an unavoidable source of inconvenience to school users.

Resolution: Early consultation with ourselves and those who are affected, will provide the opportunity to investigate and implement safe alternatives.

Health & Safety is fundamental to how jobs and projects are planned and carried out. We are committed to providing a safe working environment for all our employees and anyone affected by our works. We pride ourselves on customer care and always go the extra mile.
