Saferoad operate all over the UK and Ireland being one of the country's leading specialists in the supply and installation of road restraint systems.
Saferoad are a leading installer of vehicle restraint systems and here are some of our completed works:
- A487 Caernarfon to Bontnewydd Bypass
- Hatfield Link Road
- M4 J3-12 Smart Motorway Project
- M6 J2-4 Smart Motorway Project
For any of our projects we will select the personnel based on training and competence. Also, when selecting subcontractors we use strategic partner labour and whilst undertaking work for Saferoad these are treated the same as directly employed personnel and are supervised and managed in the same way.
All plant and equipment is selected based on the extensive knowledge of our team with regards to the tasks we undertake. Once the type of equipment is identified our purchasing department will source the product with the least risk to health and safety in line with our purchasing procedure. And daily inspections are completed prior to use using our electronic platform.
All materials are inspected in line with the project specific inspection test plan. We utilise only supplier’s that are approved under our quality management system. All deliveries are inspected prior to acceptance.
When it comes to our Employee’s Health. All employees complete a Health Questionnaire and HAVs Questionnaire at induction for the company, these are also completed annually, any employees who may be subject to using any vibrating equipment, are required to complete a HAVS daily exposure record sheet. Also, employees who may have to visit site undertake a Safety Critical Medical which although lasts for 3 years, we choose to have these undertaken every 2 years.
In regard to sustainability, suitable and sufficient Risk Assessments will be prepared to identify all foreseeable hazards and risks to health, safety and the environment with appropriate controls put into place to minimize these as far as reasonably practicable. Method Statements will be in place to provide a safe system of work for all operations undertaken, these documents will be supplied prior to works commencing for approval. All personnel will be briefed on the contents of these documents before undertaking any works on the project.
Saferoad supply, install and repair all types of Road Restraint System (RRS) that are fully compliant with BS EN 1317 and non-proprietary systems. We currently have our own suite of RRS (Megarail) that has been approved by the Highways Agency. This suite of systems can be installed in the majority of situations, but we are continuously researching and developing new innovative systems to compliment or improve our product. This includes a P4 terminal that only has two posts, can be used as a dual sided P4 and in the event of an impact can be replaced in as little as 20 minutes, so keeping installation and maintenance costs down. Because we actually install our own products and do not simply supply we are in a position to give first class technical advice to all our clients.
