Stay safe

The Window Company (Contracts) has won a RoSPA 2020 Health and Safety Award.

This was the first time the Chelmsford-based business had entered RoSPA’s internationally recognised programme, and received a silver award first time.

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 said: “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.”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, said: “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.”
