Award-winning support for construction businesses
With our in-depth knowledge of the construction industry, we can help you deal with whatever life throws at you – from workplace hazards to employee issues.
It's why thousands of construction businesses choose Peninsula for health & safety and HR support.
Construction is a hazardous occupation…
With tens of thousands of injuries recorded in the construction industry each year, you’ll face many rules and regulations.
But managing health & safety in construction is more than just meeting certain guidelines. It’s about protecting lives.
Preventing risks in construction isn’t always straightforward – as you need to consider the safety of your staff, contractors, and clients. And no matter whether your client is commercial or domestic, you need to take every step to make sure you get the job done safely.
We can help you with every aspect of your health & safety management. That includes site set-up and layout, training, construction phase plans, carrying out risk assessments – and much more. And with our 24/7 helpline, you can speak to a qualified consultant whenever you need advice.
After a painful few days trying to deal with an accreditation our H&S consultant answered a plea for emergency help and was with us within an hour, he offered easy to understand, expertly knowledgeable assistance in our hour of need. He was courteous, polite, covid friendly and willing to stay until we had gone through everything required with a fine tooth comb. He also identified areas that needed addressing or updating within our H&S practices and made sure these were also completed with our full understanding.

As a rapidly expanding access hire company, we have looked to Peninsula to provide solid advice and support as if it were the company’s own Health & Safety Department and they have done this very well. The BusinessSafe portal is a great tool both in terms of a reference library for all things health and safety and for assisting with the production of mandatory reports such as risk assessments and updating of company policies. Peninsula’s advisors are always polite and very knowledgeable. I would recommend Peninsula to any start-up company.
