Recognising the importance of our Health AND Safety
8 March 2018
Healthy and safety has always been a subject of vital importance to everyone here at David Salisbury, not least due to us being a proud part of the British manufacturing sector.
But it is not only manufacturing that requires a strong focus on health and safety – our work to supply and install our award-winning orangeries, conservatories and oak framed extensions sees us involved with building sites and projects of varying sizes and degrees of complexity all around the country.
As such, we are very proud to announce that we have been awarded a Worksafe Contractor Membership Certificate by Safety Management Advisory Services Limited (SMAS), recognising the work throughout our business to manage health and safety effectively.
Lead by Steve Carpenter, as Health & Safety (H&S) Manager, and with oversight from the Board of Directors, this accreditation highlights our H&S management system and that it meets the Safety Schemes in Procurement Forum (SSIP) Core Criteria - which ensures we are operating in line with current H&S legislation.
Of course, there are many reasons to choose David Salisbury to build your new orangery or timber garden room, whether it be for our market leading quality or highly successful record of more than 30 years of continuously producing these forms of building extension.
But, in addition to these and a range of other benefits, you can be assured you will be choosing a ‘responsible contractor’ that has a demonstrable record for healthy and safety management and that this attitude runs throughout the business from the very top down.
To paraphrase Richard Branson, “if you look after your staff, they will look after your customers.” This is certainly a philosophy that feels appropriate here and this latest award for David Salisbury is another endorsement of our continued focus to remain at the forefront of every aspect of the market we operate in – whether it be investing in new manufacturing machinery (the subject of a forthcoming Blog), developing our expert team or carefully managing healthy and safety on a daily basis.
