On Friday the 3rd of May 2019 Gardinia Windows invested in a full day of Health and safety training with it’s appointed advisers E.P. Risk Consultancy.

Health and safety is a major consideration for any organisation. With that in mind all our installation teams, our company surveyor and our service workers attended the training day. Additionally our company chairman Michael Foster and our general manager Allan Hinchliffe backed this important day by also attending and taking part in the full days training sessions.

The day was taken by Mick Brennan (MIFireE, Cert-Ed HSE) who was our appointed competent person at EP Risk Consultancy, located in Northumberland House, here in Huddersfield.

Our full day Health and Safety training schedule was as follows:

  • Manual Handling: 9:00 – 11:15
  • Ladder Awareness: 11:15 – 13:45  
  • Lunch: 12:30 – 13:00
  • Harness Training: 13:45 – 16:00

The training day ensures that all our on-site operatives are trained and compliant with current health and safety regulations, not only protecting themselves but just as importantly ensures that all our customers receive the same protection.

By using a competent company who has taken the time to invest in their workers, Gardinia customers can rest assured that their loved ones and their homes are not placed in any dangerous situations that can be avoided.

Allan Hinchliffe, our general manager states:

Sadly, it is a fact within our industry many other companies see health and safety as something to cut corners with. As we know it is a cost however we firmly believe that by investing in Health & Safety best practice we actually provide our customers and our workers with a first class service that we can be proud of.

I’m sure we have if you have browsed the internet enough over the years you have come across many example of cutting corners when it comes to health and safety, its just not worth the risk:

Overall the team felt the day was a great success.
