Site Visitor and Contractor Guide

Duo UK Manchester, Vickers Street, M40 8PU

We are very proud of the high safety and environmental standards on our site.  Before your visit to our site we ask that you take the time to read this information carefully as it contains information which will involve you in helping us to maintain this excellent record during your visit. This booklet also ensures that you are aware of what to do in the unlikely event of an emergency. There is site plan available in reception when you register on site.

Health & Safety

In order to ensure your Health and Safety whilst on site and to assist us in meeting our legal responsibilities, please read the information below and ensure you comply at all times during your visit.

Ensure that you sign the Visitors Book in reception and inform the relevant staff that you are on site.  This is for fire evacuation procedures.  You must also sign out when you leave the premises.

If you are a contractor on site for more than 2 days, you will be required to use the Company's fingerprint recognition system to maintain a log of when you are on and off site - this is also used for fire evacuation procedures, and it is important that you adhere to the clocking in and out procedures, which will be explained to you by your site host.

Whilst on site, you may be required to wear PPE in some areas. This may include:

  • Steel toe capped shoes/boots
  • Hi-vis jacket
  • Ear protection
  • Protective gloves
  • Hard hat

You will be advised by your site host about any PPE you will be required to wear and we would ask that you also follow signage where instructed.

Parking of vehicles within the site is controlled. If it is necessary for you to bring your vehicle onto site, please ensure that you park in the area designated by your site host.  Please observe all site speed limits and seek assistance when reversing into tight confines.  Please be aware that fork lift trucks operate on the premises including the car park.  Be aware that all personnel or vehicles entering or leaving the site may be subject to inspection or search by the management.

In the interests of Health and Safety, the company operates a Substance Abuse Policy. Any visitor, contractor or customer suspected of being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol may be refused entry to, or asked to leave the site.

Whilst on site do not enter into any restricted areas or touch any machinery, chemicals or equipment unless specifically authorised to do so by your site host.

For your own safety please comply with all safety information and any safety signs or warnings displayed. You should also adhere to any instructions given or issued by company staff.


Remember you must provide your site host with a copy of your Public Liability Insurance certificate and any other licences required to carry out the work you are contracted to do, such as FLT or scissor lift licence.

Fire Safety

Please be aware that the fire alarm system is tested at 3.00pm on Fridays

Should you discover a fire: 

  • Raise the alarm by shouting "FIRE" and activating the nearest fire alarm, if it is safe to do so.
  • Do not attempt to extinguish the fire unless you are confident that it is safe to do so and this will not put you at risk.
  • Promptly evacuate the area you are working in.
  • Report your actions to your site host, or the nearest employee, immediately stating the location of the fire.
  • Go to the fire assembly point and register your presence.
  • All site fire assembly points are clearly marked on the reverse of this document.
  • If you find yourself alone, evacuate the area and make your way to the closest fire assembly point using the safest possible route.


You must inform your site host immediately if you:

  • Are carrying any chemicals or hazardous waste.
  • Identify any fuel/chemical leakage or spill whilst on site.

Do not pour any liquids down drains.  Dispose of all waste in the relevant company waste management containers.

Accident or Emergency

In the event of any injury/accident or in the event of feeling unwell please inform your site host or any member of staff and, if required, they will arrange Medical Assistance or First Aid.
