Health & Safety are Important to Us!
Harringtons builders PLC are committed to ensuring that all its employees both work in a safe manner and are managed safely, the safety of the employees is the number one priority within the company at all times.
The company will use new and innovative ideas to ensure that all the employees have the right equipment, the right training and the qualifications to enable them to work in a safe and protected environment.
We are proud to boast an extremely low accident ratio, the workforce is continuously trained by our own Director of Health, Safety and Environment, with assistance from our internal Health & Safety Advisors ensuring that the workforce is fully aware of their requirements under Health & Safety legislation.
Individuals are very much encouraged to make important contributions to the development and implementation of these policies and arrangements. The company gives opportunities for participation in this process and encourages involvement of employees either directly or through their safety representatives. To ensure that this policy can be successfully implemented, the company and its board of directors will provide funds as is reasonably necessary.
Communication with the workforce is paramount to ensuring a good relationship and understanding of the “Harringtons Way”, this is the way in which Harrington’s workforce apply themselves to the day to day Health and Safety issues which may arise whilst on site. These issues are dealt with quickly and efficiently, and then communicated throughout the company to ensure that the measures required to prevent reoccurrence get passed from site to site and worker to worker.
At present Harringtons do not have a recognised ISO, but they are annually audited by Achilles UK, they are members of Construction Line and Builders Profile who both maintain annual updates on various Health and Safety documentation. We also are audited annually in order to apply for the RoSPA Achievement Awards in Health and Safety which this year we achieved a Gold Award (2020) for our achievements in Health and Safety.
Harringtons are looking forward and hope to achieve BS OSHAS 45001 & ISO 9001 within the next six months (as of Oct 2020), this forms part of the companies’ directives and targets.
As part of our in-house achievements’ awards to the workforce, should any of our workforce be commended or awarded a safety award by our clients, we have committed to matching that award, thus showing more commitment to both the men and clients that we work with.
Harringtons Builders PLC take pride in their work and in the level of Health and Safety to which they work too, this is not only meeting the requirements from the HSE, but in many cases exceed it and informing our clients of the high standards required.
