Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, SafetyPoint has been designed to be used in either situation. The equipment pods have been designed with drain holes to ensure any water in the pods drains away rapidly.

The HSE A3 law poster is the only notice that Employers are required, by law, to display.  This poster must be displayed on all business premises.

All other information notices are inserted by the user according to site specific needs.  

The information required to be displayed will be determined by the user and the requirements of the site where SafetyPoint is deployed. Examples of notices could include the F10 Submission to HSE (Notification of a construction project); Employers Insurance Certificate; Fire Action Notice; Site specific rules & regulations (Waste Disposal, COSHH, Environmental considerations); Emergency Aid Notice; Hospital Location plan; Out of hours personnel contact list; Construction Phase Plan (key points); Health & Safety policy statement.

The consistent approach for displaying notices means that any missing notices are readily apparent, unlike a pin board where no-one can be certain if a notice is missing.

SafetyPoint has been designed with the user in mind. If the pod seal is broken it provides an immediate awareness of the content’s use, thereby alerting the management personnel of an incident if a pod contains reportable equipment.   

This should ensure that an appropriate report is filed and the pods are replaced demonstrating best practice is in place regarding future liability.  The incident can then be fully investigated as necessary to ensure lessons are learnt. (2015 Guidelines on CDM – Para. 127).  It also acts as a reminder to reorder any refills for pods once they have been used.

Yes, SafetyPoint pods have been designed to be reused.  It is also possible to order new pods for use on sites when alternative safety equipment is required. 

The SafetyPoint is fully a customisable safety solution.  You select the pods and notices for the needs of your business.  Customer feedback has shown that SafetyPoint can be deployed and used in many industry/business sectors, e.g. Fit outs/refurbs, engineering works, warehousing, workshops, public events and exhibitions, reception areas in managed office accommodation, mining and many others.

No matter in which business or industry sector you operate, we are always pleased to discuss customer requirements contact us.

SafetyPoint also supply an ‘off the shelf’ solution which contains the following items:

  • Eye-wash bottle  
  • First aid kit
  • Fire alarm - Our standard for supply is of a push-button type that is commonly used in premises under construction, in temporary buildings and campsites or at events.
  • Fire extinguisher – HSG -168 – The Joint Code of Practice for prevention of fires on construction sites states “The primary purpose of fire extinguishers is to tackle incipient fires to prevent them becoming larger, or to aid an escape”.

    The extinguisher found in a SafetyPoint is not designed to replace any existing fire extinguishers that may be found near the entrance on a fully deployed fire station or call point. SafetyPoint is readily identifiable and because of its portability, it can be positioned daily so that it is adjacent to the day’s ongoing activities and works.

Yes, SafetyPoint has been designed with the user in mind.  Corporate branding is possible but will be determined by the number of units to be purchased. We would be pleased to discuss your specific needs, so please contact us as necessary.

SafetyPoint has been designed with the user in mind, the unit’s robust housing protects its contents while on the move.  When collapsed, the units have been designed to stack and to fit in normal commercial vehicles and storage facilities.

No, SafetyPoint has been designed with the user in mind.  Two people can erect the Safetypoint unit and deploy it for use in under 60 seconds without a need for tools. It should take a similar amount of time to collapse it and make it ready to move to another location as often as required.

Typical practice across many construction sites is that upon project completion the boards and associated components are treated as waste and end up in a skip together with other wastes.  Not only does this cost money, it also takes up landfill space - a diminishing and increasingly costly resource.  On project completion, SafetyPoint can be cleaned, collapsed and stored awaiting re-use on the next project.  In addition, all paper-based notices can be removed and assigned for recycling as appropriate.
