Milbank directly employs dedicated Site Supervisor’s who are CPCS Lifting Operations Appointed Persons. The Site Supervisor will visit your site and in conjunction with the site management plan the lifting and installation. Site specific Lift Plans, Risk Assessments and Method Statements are communicated to the site management and the installation team to ensure a safe and efficient completion.
Where internal decking has not been erected by the client, Milbank installation teams carry an air mattress passive fall arrest system which is deployed before the installation commences to prevent injury to the installers in the unlikely event of a fall. This system is used for Hollowcore installations only. For upper floor Beam and Block installations, a crash deck system will need to be provided by the main contractor. For vehicle offload where the installer has to access the load for slinging the products, Milbank teams carry a scaffold and harness fall arrest system which has been specifically developed so that it is easily transportable and provides fall arrest in even the tightest of spaces.
Milbank installers are trained to the highest standards. Each team comprises of a CITB Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme trained Foreman, there are also two specialist teams that have a CITB Site Manager Safety Training Scheme trained Foreman. The team is made up of a CPCS Lift Supervisor and CPCS Slinger/Signallers, these installers also are CSCS Precast Concrete Installations trained as well. For specialist work key team members are trained in Abrasive Wheels, IPAF 3a,3b mobile elevated work platforms, PASMA access towers and First Aid first responder.
