Decorators to stay
Who We Helped
Derbyshire Decorators is a large decorating firm specialising in substantial restoration and commercial projects, including stately homes like Chatsworth as well as JCB and Stratstone car dealerships. The company has built a reputation for high standards and professionalism and has partnerships with leading names such as Dulux Trade and Constructionline, meaning their work is quality assured by independent associations, so they really do require the highest standards!
Due to the nature of the work they do and the scale of the company, Derbyshire Decorators has an important legal requirement to keep all their health and safety processes up to date. They need to have an appointed, competent health and safety leader to meet regulations and fulfil their insurance obligations, as well as to keep their Constructionline accreditation. Owner of Derbyshire Decorators, Peter Marshall, wanted to outsource the H&S systems to a professional company who would make sure that the business was always complying to the highest standards without the need to create a new position within the company, which is where we came in!

Helps fulfil insurance stipulations for health and safety
Complete health and safety implementation complimented with ongoing support
We work with Derbyshire Decorators to provide a complete health and safety management system, meaning that they don’t have to employ someone in-house. This represents better value for the business and ensures the highest possible standards are maintained. We deal with all the health and safety matters for Derbyshire Decorators, as well as covering any external parties they work with. We take care of all the paperwork for them, including insurance, and make sure that everything is compliant with current legislation. We also provide joint risk assessment and method statements for each project they engage with.
We are always on the other end of the phone to help with any queries or issues that the Derbyshire Decorators team might have. We carry out spot checks on-site to make sure that everything is implemented properly and advise them on a project-by-project basis. We also engage their team by making sure their staff are advised on best practice with Toolbox Talks, as well as creating and distributing information sheets to help them do their jobs safely every day.
