Health & Safety

Personnel

ViC Group has in place a Health & Safety Policy which is in accordance with Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The safety of all personnel using our equipment is of primary importance to us and precautions are taken to minimise or, where possible, eliminate risks.

Safe Tools

We seek to provide quality tools which are tested and maintained to high standards by trained and competent technicians. It is our policy to identify equipment which falls below these standards and repair, upgrade or remove these from our hire fleet.

Safe Operation

We supply instructions (also on this website) for the safe and correct use of hired equipment wherever possible and provide both recommendations and solutions for high risk areas such as Working at Height, Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS), Noise at Work and Dust Extraction upon request. Training for safe usage of specific equipment is also available through ViC UK Hire.

Safety Wear

We recommend customers make use of personal protection equipment (PPE) wherever applicable. This is indicated by clear annotation throughout this website and we hold a comprehensive range in stock.

Safety Legislation

We strive to keep up to date with the latest developments and happenings within the industry and run a full, annually revised health and safety procedure which is set on and managed by a recognised organisation. ViC UK Hire regards this legislation as the minimum standard and expects management to achieve its targets without compromising health and safety.
