This client had some safety concerns when taking over a building from its previous occupiers. The blocked areas posed a potential health and safety hazard.
Fire exits were blocked or obstructed by overgrown vegetation and established trees, which had been left for some time with little or no attention.
Stairwells and boundary fences were also affected by the previous occupant’s lack of grounds management, making access difficult or impossible.
In line with our vegetation management processes, a comprehensive site survey was undertaken to assess the growth and identify the skillset required to clear the overgrown areas.
Safest site access points were established, as well as ensuring that no wildlife habitats would be disturbed by the clearance work planned.
Once the client had agreed the method of works, detailed method statements and risk assessments were produced for our teams to read, acknowledge and follow on site, adhering to our strict procedures.
Working dates were agreed and pre works briefs prepared.
The designated areas were restored to a neat and tidy condition.
Importantly from a health and safety stance, all fire exits are now clear, as are all access routes to both the front and rear car parks.
An emergency exit staircase was also cleared, again to allow access and plan in crucial grounds maintenance to update/fix any areas of risk from lack of use.
The client is now looking at boundary fencing and using parts of the cleared area for storage. There are also plans to plant new flower beds and small whips, which will be managed within an agreed planned preventive maintenance programme with AGS One Vegetation.
