• Core Values

  • Teamwork

    Safety is paramount and comes first in all our planning and on-site work. A Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMS) is carried out on all projects. Our team is constantly trained to ensure they are working to most current standards and is now training in SG4:15.

    Our onsite visits will include harness inspections and we continually look to reduce risks of working at height and installing guard rail systems, reducing the risk of fall or injury to our own team and all those working on site.

    It is our company policy that our scaffolding team wear harnesses at all times and all required PPE (hard hat, high-visability clothing, boots and gloves).

    All Ducker & Young operatives (labourers to advanced scaffolders) are qualified via the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS). Additional certifications include asbestos training, CITB, SSSTS and SMSTS standards.

    In all of the Company's activities the Health & Safety Policy will be implemented by:-

    • providing and maintaining equipment and systems of work which are carefully designed and monitored.
    • ensuring that optimum safety standards are complied with when using, handling, storing and transporting articles and substances.
    • ensuring that a high standard of instruction, training and supervision is given to employees and all necessary information regarding health and safety at work is provided.
    • ensuring the workplace is maintained in a high standard of cleanliness, hygiene and housekeeping and there are safe and proper means of access to and egress from places of work.
    • ensuring that there are specific arrangements entered into when sub-contracting work so that the Policy is adhered to by sub-contractors.
    • ensuring that adequate facilities and arrangements are to be provided for welfare at work.
    • ensuring that all employees comply with the relevant laws and Regulations and co-operate with those responsible for enforcing them. A system will be maintained for the prompt reporting of accidents and their investigation, together with implementing any preventative measures or statistical appraisals if appropriate.
    • ensuring that the responsibilities of employees in connection with health and safety are specified clearly in writing.

     

  • Integrity

    Whatever environment our team is working in we expect them to uphold the integrity of the company.

    Ducker & Young has worked on a number of secure sites and in schools and colleges and our team is fully CRB checked. We will work with our team to ensure that any specific client requirements - such as noise levels - are respected and adhered to.

     

  • Commitment

    We are committed to each and every project we take on. Each package and team we provide is built around each client's requirements. At the start of each project we dedicate a team to specifically work on it for its duration. 

    We build relationships with our clients, management and on-site trades to ensure that we provide the best service.
