Health & Safety


At JPS Plumbing & Gas Ltd, we work on a variety of jobs ranging from generic plumbing, complete heating systems, mechanical plumbing and full air conditioning works. The health and safety of our staff and everyone affected by our work is the first priority when considering any project.

We have worked hard to cultivate a culture throughout the business to ensure safe working practices are at the core of everything we do and ensure that we meet all of our obligations outlined in the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.

Risk Assessment

Prior to starting any project. One of our competent supervisors or managers will complete a full risk assessment. All potential hazards are taken into consideration with consideration made as to which comprehensive control measures we can implement to reduce the risks to the lowest level possible. These measures will be based one the hierarchy of controls.

This will ensure that where possible we will completely eliminate the hazard but when this is not possible our controls will reduce the risk to the lowest possible level with the collective controls that protect everyone taking priority.

Our safe methods of working have been carefully considered and implemented through training to ensure our staff understand the importance of following the correct methods to protect themselves and others around them. We constantly monitor these working practices and adapt them if we find a safer option.

We always ensure that access methods are considered and often use MEWP’s (mobile elevated working platforms) for working at height reducing the risks.

In addition to these collective controls our staff always wear the correct PPE (personal Protective Equipment).

Maintaining our high standards is essential in our business and we regularly provide our staff with up to date training, tool box talks and site inductions. In addition to this we have a health and safety consultant who assists us with our assessments and keeping us up to date with current legislation.
