Checklist – Got Everything You Need?
We know what it’s like, site offices are often set up in a rush. Use this checklist to make sure you’ve got everything you need:
✓ Key Documents
The right paperwork and documentation is crucial, not just for when the HSE come to visit, but also to communicate key procedures across your team and keep a record of activities. The easiest way to cover the basics is with a Site Compendium Pack: a selection of regularly required statutory instruments, forms and guidance books. Pack includes: a site accident book, visitor book, health and safety law poster, standard poster pack, key publications and essential signage.
Keep equipment organised and workers comfy with essential furniture, including chairs, tables, filing cabinet, desks and storage. Our furniture is made to highest quality, designed to be easily assembled and installed yet withstand the tough conditions found on site.
✓ Welfare Supplies
Every construction site needs to ensure an adequate level of comfort and well-being for the whole team. Our standard welfare kit contains all the basic items to keep your site office clean and tidy, including cleaning equipment and everything needed to keep the team supplied with hot drinks.
✓ Fire Safety
Your site office needs appropriate fire safety equipment such as a fire extinguisher and a fire blanket. Your office should be covered by your site-wide fire safety plan. Consider using wireless fire alarm technology which provides flexibility and cost savings for ever-evolving construction sites.
✓ First Aid Kits
✓ Spare PPE and Workwear
✓ Heating and Cooling
Heating and cooling products, such as fans, heaters and air conditioning units, ensure you can maintain comfortable working conditions regardless of weather conditions.

The use of an automated external defibrillator (AED) significantly improves survival rate. In recent years, we’ve seen the launch of many initiatives to improve availability of AEDs in public places, such as schools and transport hubs.
