At Pegley Groundworks Ltd, we recognise that the services we provide as driveway and groundwork contractors in Worthing carry certain risks and dangers. With a range of heavy duty machinery as well as the presence of materials heated to extreme temperatures, we maintain a strict adherence to all relevant Health & Safety legislation. Nothing compares in importance to the health of our clients, our personnel, visitors to our sites and the general public in the immediate vicinity. From small-scale installations of tarmac driveways to large scale surface dressing and civil engineering work, as groundwork and driveway contractors, we apply the same dedication to safety on every project.

As such, we need to cover every eventuality that could arise while carrying out our services, from conducting oneself safely on sites in Worthing and beyond on a daily basis, to reacting in an emergency situation.
Whether operating as driveway contractors or groundwork contractors, each member of our team receives training in regard to our approach to Health & Safety, including the following:

With these foundations in place, our team undertakes work in Worthing with total confidence. In complete understanding of emergency and fire procedures, first aid facilities and how to use them, risk assessment arrangement and so on, we can focus entirely on the work at hand.
