Services Delivered

Graham Talbot, Head of Vegetation Management, needed extra support on a Vegetation Management framework (De-veg) for a project in various locations in Wales. Safety-Critical Resource provided Strimmer Operatives who carried out De-Veg works around bridges. Due to the location of some sites, hotels were provided to ensure workers remained within fatigue guidelines. The main site manager was very pleased with the service provided.

Project Delivery

The project involved delivering a De-veg framework that the Vegetation Management division had been awarded, but Graham’s team did not have enough manpower available at certain times to carry out all the necessary works. Safety-Critical Resource was able to provide trained personnel to fill this gap and ensure the project was completed on time and to a high standard.

The team of Strimmer Operatives were fully trained and able to carry out the necessary works safely and efficiently. 

Safety measures were put in place to reduce journey times and ensure the wellbeing of the workers, including providing hotels in remote locations to prevent fatigue.

Overall, Safety-Critical Resource was able to support and provide a solution that allowed Graham’s team to complete the project successfully. The high level of service provided was reflected in the satisfaction of the site manager.
