Health and Safety

Health & Safety is the backbone and heartbeat of every project that DDS undertake. The safety of our staff, clients and sites is our priority and recognised as being the most important aspect of everything we do, both internally and out on project locations. We understand the importance of risk management analysis pre-demolition and throughout a contract and always aim to exceed the high standards set by legislation.

DDS has an internal SHEQ Manager, Steve Peacock CMIOSH MIIRSM. Steve manages the health, safety, environmental and quality assurance of all companies within the group (DDS Demolition, DDS Environmental and TW Services) and ensures our usual high standards of compliance through regular inspections and training.


Steve has extensive experience within the asbestos and the demolition industry. In 2012 he assisted the group as an external advisor with the implementation of the company health and safety systems for
DDS Environmental, which included the procurement of their first full asbestos license. In August 2014 Steve joined the Group full time to lead by example and implement and monitor further proactive Health & Safety measures and procedures.

Steve is fully supported by all staff at all levels within the Group including the senior management team and directors who also conduct Safety Tours on our sites.

We have thoroughly considered procedures in place (all supported by our numerous accreditations) which create the safest possible working environment for all persons employed by us and those in close proximity to our live sites.

DDS Demolition has obtained and is fully compliant to the OHSAS 18001 accreditation for Health and Safety.
