BPH – Health and safety in action

For anyone working in the construction industry, health and safety is of utmost concern. Cutting corners is simply not an option, and here at BPH Plant we are committed to maintaining the very highest standards. This commitment to safety is embedded in our culture and ingrained in every employee.

We are ConstructionLine Gold accredited and are committed to continual improvement.

All our operators undergo regular health and safety refresher training to ensure they are fully compliant with current regulations. They all hold a valid CPCS/NPORS certificate and between them have decades of experience working on major sites throughout the UK.

Working with heavy plant demands considerable skill and careful attention to detail. We follow all current legislation as well as best practice advice from industry and government organisations such as the Health and Safety Executive.

Staying safe on sites across the South of England

Whether working on a smart motorway project, a residential development or a major new business park, our plant is finely tuned to offer safe, reliable and efficient service on your site.

Once a machine is around four years old, it will be retired from our fleet . We use only the newest and most technologically-advanced equipment from market-leading manufacturers with outstanding safety records.

If you’re hiring self-drive equipment from us, you can rest assured that it will operate to optimum safety standards. Thinking of operated plant hire? You’ll be guaranteed the winning combination of BPH and a highly trained BPH operator. True peace of mind!
