Our policy has and will continue to be for staff to achieve a high level of academic competence and trainees attend day release courses at Leeds College of Building to reach a minimum standard of a BTEC National Certificate. Senior staff are qualified at HNC and HND level and are members of professional bodies.

The training we provide coupled with in house training enables us to maintain the highest professional standards for our clients, and staff are assessed on a regular basis to make sure they achieve the necessary standards.

Quality assurance

We have a QA system involved in the assurance of all survey drawings. We guarantee the accuracy of survey equipment by having annual servicing and calibration of survey instruments, retaining calibration certificates for reference. The servicing is carried out by the instrument manufacturer's approved contractor. Periodic testing against known baseline distances is also carried out for hand held laser measuring devices.

The accuracy of captured data is interrogated by ensuring, whenever possible, that a closed loop traverse is carried out on site, with a minimum closure tolerance for large traverses being 1 in 20,000.

Before issue, CAD drawings are checked over by a senior member of the survey team.

Health & Safety

For the last 10 years we have appointed a firm of Health & Safety consultants to help us keep up to date with our policies. New staff are inducted into our policy and training is given in house by senior staff. Staff are assessed on a regular basis and our consultants carry out regular site inspections to ensure the policy is adhered to.

Our policy is available in electronic format on request.

CSL Surveys hold insurance for Professional Indemnity, Public Liability and Employers Liability which is managed by our brokers. Further details are available on request.
