Health & Safety
High levels of health and safety are at the core of H.McGovern’s values. We pride ourselves on our careful and considered approach to health and safety at every point of the hire process with the safety of our operators, and all site personnel, of paramount importance at all times.
All H.McGovern operators attend a full site induction before arriving on any site. We also carry out a stringent drugs and alcohol screening process to ensure all of our operatives are fit to attend any site.
All our operatives also receive continual top level training and development throughout their careers. This ensures they are fully compliant on all machines and are also completely up to date with all developments in site and equipment health and safety across a variety of sites such as civil, rail, London Underground, airports and quarries.

Here at H.McGovern machine safety is a critical consideration. Our entire fleet is fully upgraded for optimum working practices and fully maintained under our rolling maintenance program. This ensures all our equipment is working as safely and efficiently as possible at all times.
Each of our machines is subjected to a thorough pre-delivery inspection before being transported to site. This allows our depot team to ensure the equipment you hire with us will arrive on site ready to start work. In the unlikely event of an issue with any of our equipment our team of fully qualified and dedicated plant fitters are on call 24/7 to ensure they can be dealt with quickly and efficiently, minimising down time for you and also ensuring site and personnel safety.
Additions such as reversing cameras and handrails have been added to all transport vehicles to ensure that moving plant to, from and around a site is as safe as possible. Modifications such as dual-locking quick hitches, audible reverse alarms and check valves on hydraulic cylinders are in place on all large excavators. Our equipment has also been specifically designed with London site compliance in mind with additional safety features such as emission-compliant Diesel Particulate Filters present on all our hire fleet.
