Danger is all around us, particularly in construction and manufacturing environments. Not only are roof trusses heavy and, as a result, those handling them carry the risk of musculoskeletal injury, while factory floors are noisy and essential equipment poses a range of risks to the unaware. However, we take health and safety seriously and so we have committed to the highest standards in order to protect both our staff and yours.

It matters in most sectors, but in construction health and safety is literally a matter of life and death. Faced with danger, risk assessments and safety precautions are vital in keeping everyone safe. As a result, we go the extra mile.

Over the years, Nuneaton Roof Truss has put into practice not only regulations, but also everything we have learned on the job. Our internally-developed procedures, risk assessments and regular ‘Tool Box Talks’ keep all of our staff fully-updated with the latest health and safety issues.

Delivering safely

Nor does our commitment does not end on the factory floor. We are committed to on-site safety, too. Our role in this is to ensure that we understand your site and that you have all of the important information about the products that are arriving and whom to contact if you need to ask any questions.

Prior to our first delivery to a new site, we visit personally, bringing with us a Site Pack. This Site Pack provides all the important contacts at Nuneaton Roof Truss so any queries can be easily directed to the people who can help you.

Beyond safety, we also take packaging seriously, ensuring our products get delivered to your site undamaged and ready to go. 

Our Site Pack provides comprehensive details on unloading, both mechanically and manually. Our drivers are fully-trained and equipped to go on-site and we regularly audit our contracted hauliers.

All our drivers carry handbooks in their cabs which cover all our safe handling procedures and including site safety. They also carry PSE at all times. This commitment to safe handling, from the factory to delivery, ensures our products arrive in perfect condition and ready for construction.
