RoSPA Health And Safety Award For The Window Company (Contracts)

by | Aug 3, 2020 | Awards

Commercial installer, The Window Company (Contracts), is celebrating after landing a coveted RoSPA 2020 Health and Safety Award.

This was the first time the Chelmsford based business had entered RoSPA’s internationally recognised programme, and the team were thrilled to receive a Silver Award first time out.

The Award recognises The Window Company (Contracts)’ success in keeping staff and customers safe, with the assessors commenting on the ‘excellent monitoring and reviewing procedures’, which help to contribute to a culture of continuous improvement in health and safety practice.

The company’s Chairman, David Thornton, commented: “Despite massive improvements in health and safety over recent years, construction remains one of the most dangerous occupations in the UK and that simply isn’t good enough. As employers, we all have a responsibility to put health and safety right at the heart of our businesses. At The Window Company (Contracts), our programme actively engages with our staff so that they have direct input into shaping our policies and procedures, and I’m delighted that we have been rewarded for that.

“New initiatives such as Point of Work Risk Assessments carried out by lead fitters on their smartphones at the start of every installation and the setting up of a Fitters Council which reports and monitors any health and safety concerns have been key to our success, so this RoSPA award really does belong to all of us.”

As the UK’s toughest and longest running health and safety awards, the RoSPA programme attracts nearly 2000 entrants every year. Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, explained its global reach: “The RoSPA Awards scheme receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.

“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7milion people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”

As well as the RoSPA Silver Award, The Window Company (Contracts) is already a proud holder of a Gold rating in the GGF’s GLASS (Goal Less Accidents Safer Sites) Charter and is CHAS accredited.

The NEBOSH sponsored RoSPA Award presentation will take place online this year, with a virtual awards ceremony being held on 3 September, hosted by broadcaster Ed James.
