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.
With an extremely low accident ratio the workforce are continuously trained by our own Health and Safety Manager, he works closely with those in the company from Director to the Ground-Worker and ensures that they are fully aware of their requirements under Health & Safety legislation.
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 message gets passed from site to site and worker to worker.
At present Harringtons do not have a recognised ISO, but they are annually audited by Construction Health and Safety (CHAS), 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 Silver Award (2016) for our achievements in Health and Safety, next year the expectation is to achieve the Gold Award.
Harringtons are looking forward and hope to achieve BS OSHAS 18001 within the next two years, 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.
