The use of gloves and eye protection is advised when handling certain products, and all SUPERSEAL staff are trained in their proper handling and disposal.  Once cured, all products are inert and harmless.
All paint is disposed of appropriately at day-end with due consideration for the environment. We do not mix cement on open, exposed terrain.
A file will be available on site with all Technical Data Sheets for all materials and solvents used.[/vc_column_text][/vc_nested_tab][vc_nested_tab title=”Health and Safety ” tab_id=”1457689355-2-63″][vc_column_text]SUPERSEAL do not believe in the client having to pay extra for our adherence to health, safety and environmental issues. Where required, we will prepare a detailed, site-specific Health and Safety Plan, prepared from the Client Specifications.

Trustees should take appropriate action to protect the Body Corporate from potential liability, rather than take action that would push the liability from the contractor toward the client.

The Construction Regulations (2014) have altered the definition of “construction work” to now exclude “maintenance”. Therefor, Bodies Corporate are not legally obligated to supply Health and Safety Client Specifications and contractors are not obligated to submit a Health and Safety Plan or have a Health and Safety File onsite for redecoration projects, or “maintenance” as defined by the Construction Regulations (2014).
