Putting health and safety first

The management of A. C. Bacon Engineering Ltd take the health & safety of its employees, sub-contractors and members of the public very seriously at our offices, workshops and on site.

We have a Health & Safety policy which is issued to all employees together with Risk Assessments and COSHH Assessments.

Erection Method Statements are formulated for each contract and site.


The safety toolkit

The following tools are specifically chosen to suit the requirements of each contract:

  • Mobile cranes
  • Access equipment
  • Guard rails
  • Safety nets
  • Scissor lifts
  • Telescopic handlers

Our policy is to invest in the modern plant and equipment needed on our sites.
