Zero Harm status for Solar Windows
The Zero Harm site safety programme
Specialist REHAU fabricator, Solar Windows is the first company to achieve the Zero Harm site safety programme in the supply chain of contractors Mansell.
The Zero Harm site safety programme, which Mansell has adopted from its parent company Balfour Beatty, encourages both employees and all members of the supply chain to 'Make Safety Personal'.
By 2012, it aims to achieve zero fatalities, zero injuries to the public, no long term harm to health and an accident frequency ratio of 0.1.
Solar has completed an 8 step process to achieve the coveted accreditation, including management training, workshops for operatives, online courses and on site observations.
The REHAU fabricator, which was shortlisted for the G11 'Fabricator of the Year' award, manufactures largely for the commercial sector in REHAU's S706 and REHAU GENEO window systems and REHAU Polytec 50S composite curtain walling system.
Solar Windows has demonstrated a long term commitment to health and safety and already holds both SAFEcontractor status and CHAS certification and two of its senior executives have achieved the highest NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work accreditation.
REHAU hope to teach construction students about the design potential and structural constraints on fenestration.
Installation video and project story shows how the REHAU Easy Heat ‘radiator in the floor’ underfloor heating system gives new homes extra buyer appeal.
The Easy Heat underfloor heating system from REHAU has been installed at a new build property alongside Easy Control to provide comfort and design flexibility for homeowners.
Installation companies buying REHAU’s pre-insulated district heating pipework will gain double points upon placing an order between now and 30th November, which can be redeemed via the website for prizes including work wear, tools, TVs and gadgets.
Commercial fabricator Solar Windows installed 450 casement & tilt and turn frames in the REHAU TOTAL70C system in the West Lee housing complex in Cardiff, part of a large scale project for Wales & West Housing (WWH). Originally ‘partnered’ together with WWH over 12 years ago, Solar Windows is a key supplier, including manufacturing and installing REHAU PVC-U windows and doors for their ongoing maintenance & replacement programme.
