Compliance and beyond – reaching the heights of safety

As our skyline evolves and our cities grow upwards, the need for working-at-height continues to be a burgeoning part of the property industry.

At NSS, all our services are underpinned by safety. We take on every challenge championing new and innovative ways of completing the job, but never at the expense of safety.

This is what makes our testing division such an integral part of the business.

Testing ensures our team, our clients’ teams and the general public are kept safe and comfortable at all times.  The Work at Height Regulations 2005 set out a clear framework for how businesses should approach this. Employers and those in control of any work at height activity must ensure that:

  • All works are properly planned and supervised
  • All works are carried out by competent people
  • All works are completed using the right type of equipment for working at height
  • Equipment is properly and frequently inspected and maintained
  • Appropriate risk assessments take place ahead of any works.

At NSS, we go beyond regulatory box ticking and offer audit and compliance services that can highlight where procedures can be tightened and systems sharpened. We specialise in the testing, installation and maintenance of fall protection and access systems, delivering all aspects of electrical and mechanical project work for commercial clients and property managers across the UK.

Our team are trained to the highest standard and backed by an impeccable reputation. All work is fully compliant with IEE, NICEIC and the Health and Safety at Work Act and approved codes of practice. In addition, we are accredited to ISO 9001, CHAS, Construction Line. Safe Contractor, Contractor Plus, OHSAS and PICS. So when you hire NSS, you can be confident that testing is thorough and considered.
