You may not know the name Emmert Wolf but you will certainly have heard his wise words mentioned many times over the years – “A man is only as good as his tools.”
Never a truer word spoken.
It’s a phrase we take seriously at S Peet Groundworks Ltd. As groundworks contractors, bulk excavation operatives and demolition experts, we’re using tools and machinery on a daily basis. And if our plant hire or grab hire equipment fails, our reputation as a leading business in the industry will suffer. Naturally this is something we’re conscious of and determined to avoid as we have a wealth of positive reviews and testimonials from existing domestic, commercial and industrial clients in Buckingham and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas.
Used daily for a myriad of construction jobs, it’s essential to keep all tools and machinery in perfect working order, for the following reasons:
Health and Safety
The most commonly used phrase in the construction industry, health and safety is foremost in every contractor’s mind. Defective tools or machinery can cause serious or fatal injuries, leading to the potential closure of construction sites and even companies. It’s just not worth the risk.
At S Peet Groundworks, we abide by the Health and Safety Executive’s Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, ensuring the following works - carried out in Buckingham and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire areas by our experienced groundworks contractors and operatives - are done so to the highest safety standards:
For our plant hire and grab hire services, our operatives are fully trained to use our equipment properly. With 100+ years’ combined experience between us, we won’t leave anything to chance in our chosen professions. And, most importantly, each one of our 60+ vehicles and machines is regularly checked and certified.
Reduction in Downtime
If a particular tool or piece of plant equipment fails, some or all of the construction process will have to stop temporarily. This is far from cost effective. It’s worth taking time between jobs to have as much of the plant machinery checked and serviced in order to avoid any delays when a project is in full swing. Some think the job comes first, others the machinery. Regardless, it’s vital to plan ahead so the work can continue for the benefit of the business and client satisfaction.
From our offices and yard in Chipping Norton, S Peet Groundworks’ contractors provide a range of grab hire, plant hire, bulk excavation and demolition services to domestic, commercial and industrial clients in Buckingham and the surrounding Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire regions.
