John Pye Auctions departments underake a wide range of operational activities for many clients, across many market and sectors nationally and internationally.
Client service requirements are broad in scope and we have to cope with different and challenging situations to ensure the safety of our staff and the general public, along with effective service and auction delivery.
Every day our operational activities cover the following asset, stock and site management circumstances:
ATTENDING SITE VISITS
Initially we conduct a site risk assessment, this identifies all hazards on-site and lists any mitigation that we need to implement before any other member of staff is allowed on the site.
CONTROLLING ACCESS TO SITES
We control access to sites where we have been given the responsibility by clients. This includes a signing in and out procedure together with a briefing to visitors outlining any hazards they need to be made aware of.
HOLDING ON_SITE SALES
All sales held on-site are controlled and visitors are logged in and out and appropriate documentation completed; such as an attendance log, disclaimers etc. Checks are also made to ensure appropriate PPE and footwear is worn before access is granted.
MANAGING THE REMOVAL OF ASSETS
Whereby large heavy assets have been sold, such as plant and machinery, we are conscious that the removals of such assets are done so safely. We insist buyers conduct a suitable risk assessment, produced and verified by our team prior to work commencing and that appropriate PPE is worn during the removal process.
On all or on site sales staff has had the appropriate Institute of Occupational Health & Safety (IOSH) training to conduct and examine risk assessments.APPRAISAL / CONSIGNMENT ENQUIRIES
