Safety on site is of paramount importance to Street CraneXpress
… whether that’s protecting our engineers or our customers

Regular audits, inspections and a robust system of two-way communication with our engineers through our revered Business Management System, has created a culture of continuous improvement throughout the SCX Group.

Our engineers undergo continuous training and development both on all makes and models of lifting equipment and on all relevant safety regulations and updates in the law, to ensure the highest standards of safety are upheld when working on your site.

All substances such as oils, greases and sprays used by Street CraneXpress have to be risk and COSHH assessed accordingly. Rigorous checks ensure that only the most appropriate substances are used for the application and our engineers are all trained to ensure that the tools used are fit for purpose, calibrated, tested or certified as required either by law or our management system.

Our commitment to continuous improvement, which involves regular auditing of our systems, processes and procedures, also incorporates continuous personal development which ensures that all our employees have the knowledge, skills and desire to do the best possible job for our clients.

Rescue Kits

Street CraneXpress has implemented a system of personal rescue devices for working at height, in order to remove the responsibility of forming rescue plans away from our clients.

In accordance with Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and The Work at Height Regulations 2005, this process covers all eventualities of rescue following a fall from height, by providing the user with a means to descend from their lanyard or a responsible person with a device for use in the rare event of an unconscious fall.

LEEA TEAM Cards

All Street CraneXpress engineers are actively encouraged towards qualifying for a LEEA TEAM Card; a scheme run by the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) in order to raise standards of safety in lifting equipment testing, examination and maintenance.

Street CraneXpress is committed to continuous improvement and training and these cards officially demonstrate our engineers’ competency, experience and evidence of training.

Currently, all our service engineers either hold a TEAM card plus numerous LEEA specialist qualifications or are in the process of qualifying by having taken at least one of the entry exams. This means that you can be sure that the person responsible for looking after your lifting equipment is more than qualified to do so.

Point of Work Method Statement and Risk AssessmentPOWS RAMS

Before undertaking any work on cranes, lifting equipment or associated systems, our engineers undertake appropriate Point of Work Risk Assessments and Method Statements (POW RAMS).

We are continually improving our safe systems of work and we ensure that we back this up with supporting evidence and documentation. Point of Work Risk Assessments are undertaken for each and every job we attend, and this feedback can be provided to the customer, assuring them that our engineers’ working practices are as safe as possible, whilst we’re on their site.
