The importance of choosing a company that works within Health and Safety Regulations has never been greater.

We pride ourselves on having highly skilled teams for all tasks, including fabrication, groundworks, erection, etc. with our employees being fully trained and holding relevant CSCS & IPAF qualifications as well as receiving regular training updates.

Rose Engineering will follow all Health and Safety rules and adhere to all relevant HSE Regulations whilst working on a project giving our clients the peace of mind that their project is in safe hands.

We work with HCS Safety Ltd who provide up to date Consultancy Services and carry out regular Health & Safety audits to ensure we have the latest information and are fully compliant.

With regular investment in training such as CSCS, IPAF, CPCS, IOSH and Health & Safety courses we ensure that all of our employees are experienced, knowledgeable and confident in their work giving clients the best possible service.

If you would like to find out more about CSCS visit https://www.cscs.uk.com/


Since July 2014, it has been a legal requirement that all Structural Steelwork and Steel Framed Buildings are CE Marked to ensure every building (or structure) conforms to the appropriate manufacturing standards and are fit for purpose under BS EN 1090 Part 2.

Failure to engage a contractor who can provide CE Marked Steelwork could result in building insurance being denied.

Rose Engineering is accredited to CE Mark our steelwork and all our steelwork will be provided with the relevant Compliance Certification.

The 2015 CDM Regulations

The 2015 CDM Regulations apply to all construction projects in the UK. Virtually everyone involved in a construction project, including the client, has legal duties under the CDM 2015 Regulations.

The main duty for clients is to ensure their project is suitably managed and that their appointed contractor will comply with all Health & Safety rules and responsibilities under the CDM Regulations.

Rose Engineering can take on the major project roles if required and will work with any other members of the project team to ensure a scheme is fully CDM compliant.

Rose Engineering has built an outstanding reputation for delivering high quality Steel Framed Buildings and continues to so by looking after our clients and our employees, adopting the following Core Values:

Customer Focus – We are 100% committed to our customers; they are the reason for our successful business and we work with them to achieve their goals in the most efficient and cost effective way.

Excellence – We seek to achieve and maintain the highest level of excellence in the delivery of our products and professionalism of our employees. We will not compromise on the quality and finish of the products we offer and we require all our employees to take part in regular training schemes to ensure our standards remain at the highest level.

Respect & Openness – We value our clients and employees and seek to treat one another with respect and in a way in which we would want to be treated. We are open to change and new ideas from our customers and employees, welcoming constructive comments and ideas from both.

Responsibility – We accept our responsibility to our customers, staff, neighbours, local community and the environment. Our clients deserve our full attention and we consider ourselves responsible for ensuring that they receive the service and end product that exceeds their expectations. We are responsible for ensuring our staff have good working conditions and are treated fairly – they in turn have responsibility for ensuring they deliver quality workmanship for our clients.

Our responsibility to our neighbours is paramount to being able to work efficiently in our area without causing disturbance and we support our local community in many ways both financially and with practical help.

Our environmental responsibility means that we endeavour to source our materials in a way that reduces our carbon footprint and purchase goods whenever possible from local sources. We constantly strive to reduce our waste output and currently recycle at least 70% of waste materials.
