Premises, Tools and Equipment

Helping you manage, maintain and use your assets safely

For people to be able to work safely they need to be provided with the appropriate premises, tools and equipment for the work they are undertaking. This is supported by various pieces of legislation and is also one of the foundations of civil liability. Not only do the relevant premises, tools and equipment need to be provided, but employees need to know how to use them safely and they need to be properly maintained.
