I.D.P Safety Services

I.D.P Safety Services Ltd has been working together with Clarke Roofing since 2002 when the Managing Director Ian Pickard first set up the company.

Ian had already set up a close working relationship with Clarke Roofing since 1996 when he was working for a local construction company carrying out training for local sub-contractors.

Clarke Roofing has always had a proactive approach towards health and safety and training. Over the years and with the help of I.D.P Safety Services Clarke Roofing have continually achieved CHAS as a main contractor, Constructionline and Safecontractor and has won the GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE safety awards from the National Federation of Roofing Contractors – GOLD for the last five years in a row!

I.D.P Safety Services works with Clarke Roofing on a day by day basis producing method statements and risk assessments for the various projects they undertake whilst also ensuring that Construction Phase Plans are all up to the required standards.

Ian has helped to compile a CITB training matrix and is working with an NVQ assessor to ensure the operatives are all achieving the highest NVQ levels as possible.

The two companies are working on getting the majority of the labour force Heritage CSCS cards due to the type of work carried out by Clarke’s on English Heritage sites and National Trust projects.

The culture of health and safety comes from the very top down to the newest employees and no one is allowed to work out on site until they have gone through the company training process and is made aware of the company procedures.

I.D.P Safety Services offers to all their clients a fully comprehensive service from safety paperwork and training to PPE and clothing needed to carry out their jobs safely.
Clarke’s have an excellent accident record and pride themselves in working safely on every project from estimating to making good and repairs.

Roofing can be classed as a high risk occupation so no risks can be taken with employee’s lives and money comes second after safety.

I.D.P Safety Services are proud to work with Clarke Roofing and will continue to go from strength to strength in the future and will continue to win awards. Together the partnership will endeavor to keep all employees aware of health and safety issues and keep them safe and well.
