Donaldson Timber Engineering | Health and Safety

Donaldson Timber Engineering Ltd

At DTE, we are fully committed to ensuring the health and safety of all our stakeholders.

Our insurers have commented that the company’s internal systems are among the best in the industry as we have developed leading initiatives to make employees, customers, site workers and haulage drivers safe.

As accidents at work in the construction industry continue to make for alarming reading, we have been focused on improving the safety of the industry's biggest risk areas, including working at height and unloading roof trusses.

Along with developing the award-winning SafeStep with Trad Safety Systems, we have put a number of significant safety measures in place to prevent the risks associated with unloading trusses. We can supply trusses pre- slung, which means no-one gets on to the lorry to unload. The slings are placed in the correct position in the factory, reducing risks of slingers putting them in the wrong position, and once they are on the roof the slings are cut off.

Please read the below endorsement from the Health & Safety Executive.

SafeStep is an award-winning scaffolding system for improving safety on-site, designed to minimise risk when fixing ridge bracing on tall roof trusses.
