Health and Safety

Your safety is our priority – All equipment supplied by MCA is to current industry specifications and is maintained to the highest possible standards by trained staff. However, appropriate safety equipment must still be used, whether the operator is experienced or not.

MCA branches can advise on best practice for the safe use of all equipment supplied and we’ll be pleased to advise you on what PPE is suitable for your task. PPE can be supplied at additional cost to our standard hire rates if required.

MCA staff will ensure that the customer understands the equipment being hired and will offer instruction on its operation, this may require some of your time at the branch or on site. Where full product training is required MCA offer a range of courses at their regional training facilities.

Within Wolseley UK, health and safety has become an integral part of our management philosophy and we are committed to continuously improving the working environment for our staff, our customers and members of the public. A key principle behind this philosophy is the emphasis on ownership and accountability.
