Site Installation


Safety Systems

Safe Offloading System 
The design; which won Leach Structural Steelwork an award from Balfour Beatty for “A proactive approach to H&S” was developed in house to prevent falls from vehicles whilst loading and unloading of steel columns. The frame which attaches to our own modified flat beds on the HGV’s enables the operative to wear a harness which is attached to the frame on a running line. The frame is attached both pre delivery and during delivery on site. It is easily removed and is transported between the stock yard and site for continual use.



Edge Protection
Edge Protection is paramount when steel is being erected to areas of any height and is incorporated during the design process. In the majority of instances these are pre-assembled at ground level onto the perimeter beams to minimise risk for working at heights.  All systems are installed, maintained and inspected by our own qualified teams.


Risk Assessments & Method Statements (RA&MS)
Prepared for each project by Leach Appointed Person the RA&MS details the safe systems of work for all lifting operations. Lifting loads and crane plans are incorporated into this document.  Risk assessments are prepared in conjunction with the method statement. These form part of the site induction which all operatives must attend before work commences on site.



Leach Structural Steelwork owns and operates all its own 35T and 60T cranes, MEWPs and Telehandlers. The companies HGV fleet vehicles enables a timely delivery without having to rely on subcontract hauliers. It also enables planning in consideration of carbon footprint by ensuring items are delivered from sites within a similar proximity.  Engineers are able to visit sites to ensure that machinery is kept in good working order reducing the need for bringing items back to the head office for servicing.



Metal Decking

Metal decking can form an integral part of the project and Leach Structural Steelwork can provide this service.



Precast Elements

Leach Structural Steelwork supply and install all pre-cast products including planks, stairs, bespoke beams, wall panels and lift cores. Leach erectors are qualified to weld encast plates onto cores where required. This assists in minimising co-ordination of trades.
