AK Shop Fitting & Carpentry
Blog What do you hear in the words ‘health and safety’? We know that, for some folk, the very words can be like a red rag to the proverbial bull. Many are happy to rant about how things ‘used to be’ and use terms like ‘killjoy’ and ‘jobsworth’. The phrase ‘back in my day’ often receives a vehement airing. Sadly, such outbursts are often caused by misreporting of the facts of an incident. Yes, health and safety is becoming a more prominent aspect of business culture – and in places previously less open to such thoughts. A prime example is football. The number of red cards is on the increase, and players are sent off for tackles that were tolerated in past times. Interestingly, words and phrases such as ‘recklessness’ and ‘duty of care’ are now heard, as an increasing focus is on players' behaviour towards each other. Away from the professional game, a violent Sunday league tackle can cost the victim much in lost wages and the like. What has this to do with you and AK Shopfitting and Carpentry Services? We are hugely committed to health and safety in the environments in which we work. Of course, this is about the wellbeing of our own teams; and equally those who they come in to contact with when working in a customer’s premises. We also think that it’s also fair to note that, when accidents and serious incidents do occur in working environments, any press reporting usually highlights the location, with headlines such as: ‘Serious accident in Bristol shoeshop’, rather than the company providing the service there. So, as well as the keeping safe aspects, it also makes sound commercial sense to ensure that any company you choose to work in your premises treats health and safety as a key priority. We are accredited within CHAS (Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme) and each of our site managers is qualified in the key areas of site management safety, safe assembly and inspection of tower scaffolds, elevated working platforms, first aid, asbestos awareness and much more. There are many factors to consider when choosing a company to carry out shopfitting work for you. Please make sure this true and visible commitment to health and safety is one of them. Back to Blog
