Having structural work or damp proofing done?

Let the right one in?.

Okay so the above is the title of a horror movie, but just think before you let a damp proofing technician or wall tie installer into your house, just who are they and is there anything about them you should know?

You can of course see the photos of all our staff on this web site and yes; many have worked with us for years. However, you only have our word for that so…

We’ve committed to a program to ensure all our site staff (and the boss), are regularly screened for drug and alcohol problems, as well as having their criminal records checked and monitored.

This means that social housing and domestic customers know that the smiling technician on their doorstep, has been thoroughly checked and will be sober and not under the influence of any illegal drugs.

Our MD Bryan Hindle, kicked off the program by volunteering to be the first inline for drug and alcohol screening and criminal records investigation by Disclosure Scotland.

We are pleased to report a clean bill of health in all respects and all staff are now cleared to work in schools, social housing, domestic housing and commercial situations.

In our business trust is important and we all trust and support each other. However, clients may never have come across us before and we will often be working unsupervised in their homes, with their loved ones and belonging around us.

We take this responsibility to heart and the new program is part of a continuing improvement in health and safety; for our clients, any contractors on site and ourselves.

If you want to be sure that having a stranger working in your house won’t end up a horror story….
