Purvis Marquees have worked hard over the years to bring a high level of health & safety to their company and site practices.

The introduction of a 106-page RAMS document ensures that we are able to provide our clients with evidence of our mindset with regards to health & safety and proof that we are serious when it comes to health & safety within our company. Our construction teams have been trained to follow strict processes meaning we can be safe in the knowledge that construction safety is at the front of their minds.

Right from the start, our project team tailor RAMS documentation to suit a site or contract, ensuring that every specific detail has been taken into consideration and communicated to the staff on site. All our policies and safe working practices are inspected both internally through recorded random site inspections and externally by the associations we are members of their high expectations and strict auditing processes.

Purvis Marquees are a CDM compliant company. With the introduction of Construction Design Management into the marquee and events sectors, we have embraced and incorporated CDM into our safety documentation and site practices. From daily recorded toolbox talks to our Principle Contractors CPP (construction phase plan), we have every detail covered.

All of Purvis Marquees health & safety procedures and practices are overseen and assessed by Greens of Haddington. Our company has a long-standing relationship with Greens of Haddington through our Royal Warrant.

Purvis Marquees are dedicated to driving construction safety for events and temporary building construction through training and recorded processes. Year on year we bring new and improved safety practices that allow us to provide our staff and clients with the assurances that we are a safety driven company. 


Let’s face it… there are some brilliant marquee and tent hirers out there, and some very poor ones too.

The best will build you a first-class structure, keep your stress levels low, manage your on-site risk and be a delight to work with. The worst ones will make your event a nightmare.

MUTA is only interested in having the best companies as members.

Our members sign up to a Code of Practice requiring them to be legal, decent, honest and truthful. They are obliged to provide a professional standard of workmanship, to check all their own work, and to maintain public liability insurance of at least £1m.

They must follow MUTA’s industry-leading Best Practice Guide and submit themselves to independent inspection to ensure that they do. Members who fail their inspection are required to make immediate improvements; failure to do so results in expulsion.

If something goes wrong, MUTA members must promptly, efficiently and courteously investigate any complaint. If that process fails, customers can complain directly to MUTA. If MUTA upholds the complaint, members must take the required action or be expelled.

So don’t take a risk…

Use a MUTA Member – and give your event the best chance of success.

SafeContractor delivers a tailored health and safety accreditation allowing contractors to showcase their capabilities to potential customers. To gain health and safety accreditation we must submit our details on one online platform and complete an assessment once a year, promoting our business to hundreds of organisations.

We joined a community of over 33,000 like-minded contractors and use the SafeContractor badge to enhance our business profile
and demonstrate compliance.

What is health and safety accreditation? – A Health and safety accreditation allows businesses to show that their health and safety documentation is up to date and
meets recognised industry standards.

The benefits of achieving accreditation – Gain peace of mind that your business has the relevant health and safety paper work in place to meet industry standards to work on site. 

Stay ahead of the competition when tendering for more work opportunities. 

Promote your commitment to health and safety best practice by displaying the approved seal. It’s the sign of a professional and credible contractor business.

A Royal Warrant of Appointment is a mark of recognition of those who have supplied goods or services to the Households of HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales for at least five years, and who have an ongoing trading arrangement.

The Monarch decides who may grant Royal Warrants. These are known as the Grantors: HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.

The Royal Warrant is the document that appoints the company in its trading capacity, and is granted to a named individual, known as the Grantee. The Warrant gives the Grantee permission, and responsibility, for the display of the relevant Royal Arms in connection with the business.

Today there are around 800 Royal Warrant holders representing a huge cross-section of trade and industry, from individual craftspeople to global multi-nationals. They are united by a commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence. Almost all Warrant holders are members of the Association.

Purvis Marquees have held a Royal Warrant since 1982 and the company and team are very proud of our Royal Warrant and the special relationship that we have working with the Royal Household and the Royal Warrant Holders Association.


It was good working with you and your team again this year, please pass on my thanks for being solution-driven, proactive, flexible and safe as ever!

All the best,

I felt I should write to let you know that your staff did an absolutely wonderful job in getting our marquees up, and thereafter working so hard to see us safely through storm Ali, which we encountered prior to our weekend festival of racing. When I saw the destruction to temporary facilities elsewhere in Scotland caused by the storm, it showed me how difficult it must have been for your staff.

They also helped us get some facilities strapped down, and for that I am grateful.

In so far as the racing over the weekend is concerned we had a terrific festival, with the venue looking fantastic, and presented to a high standard.

Please accept my thanks and pass on my thanks and gratitude to all the staff involved.

Best wishes
