The company has also appointed Phil Earl as a full-time designated health and safety manager to oversee all contracts handled from its UK headquarters.

It means Earl will work with all of De Boer's teams tackling all of its construction projects and be involved in induction training for new De Boer personnel followed by annual refresher courses for all staff.

According to Phil, the key to effective health and safety is in avoiding over-complication. "People find the idea of health and safety very scary until they actually get into it and then they realise it's actually very simple," he explained.

Health and safety issues are equally applicable to contracts of all sizes and Phil added: "A one-day job is just as important as an assignment on the scale of the Farnborough International Airshow. The team need to know that health and safety is being treated as a priority and that I will be available on site. I can also help clients ensure they don't inadvertently breach any regulations."
