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.
