SPB Group Health & Safety

SPB is committed to the ongoing improvement of health and safety performance throughout the company, and we consider the continual development of both individuals and the fleet of the highest importance.

The Team

Every member of the SPB team is trained to industry standard, and all drivers have a minimum of one years experience and the necessary qualifications for each individual contract. All drivers and delivery staff are training in the operation of every type of machine.

SPB has an incident and accident free culture among the workforce, in order to promote a safer working environment on site. This commitment provides a safer working environment not only for our employees, but everyone associated with the site and its activities. Should an incident occur on site or anywhere within the industry, a safety notice is distributed amongst all SPB staff, and ‘toolbox’ talks are conducted with on-site staff, making sure that all are fully aware of dangers and how to avoid them.

The Fleet

All SPB machines are less than three years old and fully equipped with the very latest in health and safety technology. They are all fitted with audible reverse alarms, all large excavators have reversing cameras, and a recent overhaul saw the entire fleet upgraded to automatic dual-locking Quick Hitches. Also the company has continued to add new types of attachments as customers increasingly look to use specific equipment for each application to cut times and costs.

Every SPB machine and attachment goes through an extensive pre-delivery inspection before it arrives on site, ensuring that when it starts to work it is in perfect condition. In order to extend the SPB health and safety ethos onto every site, a range of extras are available, such as safe-load indicators and height restrictors. This helps ensure that when a machine is working it is working as safely as it can be.
