HEALTH, SAFETY AND ACCREDITATION
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.
CHAS (The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) was created by experienced health and safety professionals in 1997 to improve health and safety standards across the UK.
In partnership with the Association of London Government (ALG), CHAS was a key developer of the core criteria held in the Approved Code of Practice which supported the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (now recognised as CDM 2015) and is a founder member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). As one of the founders of third-party accreditation CHAS is not only a trusted advisor on health and safety compliance, they are an authority. CHAS set industry benchmarks, provide assurance and reassurance, and offer best-in-class services that are easy to use and cost effective.
This health and safety legislation was created to achieve the following aims:
To simplify health and safety contractor assessment by standardising requirements.
To allow companies to avoid undergoing health and safety assessments for every job.
CHAS have more than 900 public and private sector client organisations and 70,000 contractors registered on the CHAS database and Purvis Marquees are one of them.
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.
Companies that supply products and services to the road haulage and logistics industry join the Road Haulage Association as associate members for two reasons. Firstly, they want to demonstrate to potential customers that they are committed to their industry.
Secondly, through their trade association’s activities, Associate membership allows suppliers to keep up-to-date with the needs of their customers and the opportunity to interact with them.
There are three types of RHA Associate membership: Gold, Silver and Bronze. In addition to the standard benefits of Associate membership, Gold and Silver members have made an additional commitment to the RHA and their membership entitles them to inclusive marketing opportunities using the RHA’s portfolio of publications.
Associate members – names you can trust
The RHA’s Associate members are not here today, gone tomorrow firms – they will try their utmost to supply you with quality, cost-effective products and services. By becoming RHA members the companies listed have demonstrated their commitment to you. Whenever the need arises, give any of them a call and ask: ‘I am an RHA member, can you help?’
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.
