Style's Commitment to Health and Safety Goes from Strength to Strength

It has always been our commitment at Style to work to the very highest standards of health and safety, and we see it as an important aspect of our overall approach to business.

Our philosophy is that health and safety should not be seen as a compliancy issue, but a positive aspect of delivering a highly professional service.

Andy Gibson, Style’s Director for the North explains, “We believe there are two ways of looking at health and safety. You can either view it as something that must be complied with. Or, you can use it pro-actively within your business culture to create strong client relationships, higher standards and better overall quality.
”Our philosophy has always been the latter. ”By going the extra mile and setting the health and safety bar high, we see huge benefits for our clients, our suppliers, and our own people.
“Thorough risk assessments are conducted prior to all installations to ensure that when we arrive on site we are fully prepared. We also take time to fully understand a client’s own policies so that we can meet all of their relevant standards, and appreciate hazards and risks which are local or unique to them.
This guards our clients’ reputations by demonstrating high standards of health and safety whilst on their premises, as well as establishing that there are no difficult access points to a building that could cause danger or limit progress.”

At Style, project managers and key personnel have the ‘Black Hat’ Construction Site Managers Safety Certificate (SMSTS), lead engineers are certified under the Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme, all site engineers hold a CSCS card, and PASMA, IPAF qualifications, Style are CHAS and SAFEcontractor accredited, and we were 2010 Construction Health & Safety award finalists.

If you are looking for advice or support with an installation that requires the very highest levels of health and safety, or have a client that demands the best in this area, we would be pleased to discuss your requirements with you. Simply contact your local Style Office for more information
