2016 to date has provided 3 great examples of the success of the positive approach Darke & Taylor takes towards the management of Health & Safety.
Firstly, we were chosen as finalists in the Health & Safety Initiative category at this year’s Constructing Excellence in London and the South East Awards. It was a real accolade for Darke & Taylor to be recognised at such a prestigious, regional, construction industry wide, especially given the scale and resources of some of the large national plc companies we were competing against.
Secondly, we received this fantastic feedback from the Accredited Assessor who assessed our submission for the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS):
“I am pleased to inform you your application or reassessment is compliant and is now registered in the CHAS scheme national database. Please note that this application has been one of the best submissions that I have seen for some time (some years) and as such please pass on my thanks and commendations to all involved in creating, assembling, updating and following your safety management system.”
Finally, at this year’s Electrical Contractors’ Association Annual Awards, Darke & Taylor were “Highly Commended” in the Best Health and Safety Initiative Award. These awards are judged by an esteemed and independent panel of industry leaders and experts representing different areas of expertise and interest and recognise the top-performing building services and electrical firms in the UK.
Managing Director Paul McNaughton commented:
“What an excellent few months for the company. The health and safety of our employees and all those likely to be affected by our operations is a priority of Darke & Taylor and it is fantastic to see that our KPI driven approach to continual improvement in our health and safety practices has earned us praise from a variety of different organisations that represent and assess our industry. This is a real pat on the back to all of those involved in managing and delivering this important aspect of our business.”
