Onsite Management Services:
We provide full time site management services from the resident AP to coordinators, Crane Supervisor’s, Slinger Signallers, Crane Operators, Plant Handling Specialists and Plant Operators meaning that your project has the correct personnel to meet any requirement.

The principal contractor is provided weekly audits and reports along with digital tracking systems for all items of plant, equipment, lifting tackle and Crane/Lifting Team members. This system is an open system to the principal contractor which will automatically send e mails to prompt action such as a Crane Team members licence nearing expiry or an item of plant or lifting tackle requiring recertification. We also supply site signage including weather boards tackle tags and information and safety notices making for a safe, clear, and recognisable presence on site.

Rescue Planning and Recovery:
As stated in the Working at Height Regulations 2005, Rescue plans are required by law, and it is not sufficient to rely solely on the emergency services in the event of a rescue situation. The nature of large construction sites means we have great responsibility for those that work and operate at height such as Tower Crane Operators and Lifting Team members, it is essential to have an appropriate rescue plan in place to protect employees. Maxim will provide rescue training, rescue equipment and rescue planning for operator recovery and for those stranded at height or inaccessible areas of the site.

We understand that all sites will be different in terms of size, location and plant and equipment on site and will require a tailor-made rescue and evacuation procedure. Maxim will provide everything you need to be safe and prepared for any eventuality.
