Ecology consultants work safely
Ecologists work long hours, often at night and in remote locations. Work may take place in old lofts, up mountains or near fast flowing rivers. Ecology by Design asked Pavy for help with health & safety to ensure their team, clients and the general public are kept safe.
Ecologists encounter all manner of hazards in their daily work. During a bat survey an ecologist may come across asbestos, fragile roofs, confined spaces, a wasp nest or exposed electrical cables. Hazards from a great crested newt survey may include Weil’s disease, cuts from barbed wire, an unstable river bank or sunstroke.
Pavy helped Ecology by Design to identify the whole gamut of hazards that an ecologist may be exposed to. We then assessed the associated risks and discussed the most suitable control measures. All relevant documentation (risk assessments, method statements and health & safety policy etc.) is now shared with Ecology by Design staff via the company’s server.
with ISO 9001 for streamlined processes
Ecology by Design employs a young, dynamic workforce who are often away on client sites. To establish clarity within this fast growing company, Pavy developed clearly defined processes and put in place a certified ISO 9001 management system. ISO 9001 has helped to streamline operations and ensure efficient communication with clients and other stakeholders.
“Pavy held our hand throughout the process, making it understandable and
simple to implement in the business”
