Health and Safety

Ensuring people’s wellbeing at work is fundamental to every business decision we make – and we acknowledge and support every client’s commitment to continuous improvements in site health and safety. We have a fully qualified and committed Health and Safety Manager, and our Quality and Safety Management Systems are ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001-accredited.

Our strict emphasis on health and safety applies in everything we do – from the information we provide at the hire desk, to the supply of trained and competent operators, to machinery and equipment selection, and to how we maintain, service and deliver machinery, attachments and equipment.


Plantforce subscribes to the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and is an active member of the Construction Plant Association (CPA). As such, we’re always up to speed with new developments in our industry and the sectors we serve – and in turn, we can ensure we train staff in the latest techniques.

We also apply strict criteria when selecting machinery and attachments for our fleet. For example, we look to source plant that reduces vibration, noise and particulate emissions. Plantforce provides full plant safety and environmental specifications on request, so you can meet your project’s precise requirements with confidence.
