Lorien recognised With inaugural RoSPA safety accolade

Lorien Engineering Solutions is one of only six companies in the world to be recognised with the inaugural Patron’s Award by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

RoSPA has marked its centenary by introducing the Patron’s Award, which it has presented to an exclusive group of businesses that have achieved consecutive Gold Awards for 25 years or more.

The award was presented to the Lorien’s Health & Safety Manager Elliot Follows and Operations Director Bill Treddenick (pictured) at a ceremony in Birmingham.

Only five other companies internationally were recognised with the Patron’s Award. They include Costain Oil & Gas, Hanson Contracting and Esso Petroleum.

Burton-based Lorien was also presented with a Silver medal for its work in the Management of Road Risk (MoRR).

Elliot Follows said: “To be one of a very select group of organisations to be recognised with RoSPA’s first Patron’s Award is a fantastic honour for our business. It is proof of our long-standing commitment to continually improving all aspects of Health and Safety in the workplace.”

Through the RoSPA Awards scheme, which is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas, judges consider entrants’ overarching occupational health and safety management systems, including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement. The awards scheme is now in its 61st year.


 

New Sarnafil Plus Cpd For Ever Changing Industry

Sika Sarnafil has launched a new and improved ‘Successful Roof Refurbishment’ Continual Professional Development (CPD) seminar, aimed at those looking to specify high performance products for roof renovations.

Created by the experts at Sarnafil Plus, the company’s specialist refurbishment offer, the interactive RICS Approved CPD has been updated specifically to aid specifiers, including building surveyors, facilities managers and building managers, in their decision making process. The CPD contains vital up-to-date information on how to identify the causes of roof failure, investigation methods, compliance with efficiency regulations, system options and how to specify the best materials for a project.

The CPD can be combined with a live demonstration where attendees are shown the various Sarnafil waterproofing systems being installed and get the chance to try their hand at welding the membrane themselves.

Head of sales for single ply membranes at Sika, John O’Raw explains why Sarnafil Plus chose to upgrade and improve the CPD: “With the refurbishment market growing fast we noticed that building managers, FMs, architects and surveyors were increasingly seeking out the latest information about regulations and roofing systems. We’re dedicated to supporting these specifiers in an ever changing industry, so an update was essential to provide the highest quality educational material to meet those needs.

“The CPD provides attendees with invaluable knowledge about current legislation and regulations, including British Standards, EU Standards, energy efficiency requirements as set out in Part L and BREEAM assessments, as well as learning about our newly available site inspection and supervision tool.”

Attendees will also be able to find out more about the benefits of a market-leading single-point guarantee, which protects against any unlikely problems that may arise from the failure of roofing membranes and the existing substrate, caused by incorrect design or installation, giving all parties involved complete peace of mind.

The CPD is 60 minutes long, including a question and answer session, and will be delivered by one of four dedicated experienced Sarnafil Plus Refurbishment Surveyors. If you are interested in taking the new CPD, visit Sarnafil or call 01707 394444.


 

Axis Security celebrates new Kinney Green contract

Axis Security, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of security services, has won a new contract with London-based property consultant Kinney Green to provide manned guarding services to its flagship property in the heart of The City – 5 Fleet Place.

A total of eight employees have been transferred to Axis employment via TUPE, including a receptionist, supervisor and six security officers. Axis is also providing further officers to cover holidays and sickness.

Jerry Paddon, 5 Fleet Place Building Manager, Kinney Green, says it is vital that the entire security team strikes the right balance between security and customer service:

“Our occupants expect a high level of professionalism from everyone they come into contact with, especially when their clients visit. As well as keeping the building secure, it is also essential that our team is welcoming, knowledgeable and professional at all times.”

In what was a competitive tender, Jerry was impressed with Axis Security’s commitment to employee welfare:

“Having worked with what is an excellent security team for many years now, it is important for me to ensure they are well looked after by our security provider,” he explains. “Axis Security provides an excellent proposition with regard to employee welfare, benefits and training – even down to providing good quality uniforms that are both comfortable and attractive.”

Training provided by Axis Security includes: first aid, with defibrillator training, as part of a specific request by the building’s occupiers; World Host customer service training to ensure the very highest levels of customer service are maintained; and Project Argus strategic counter-terrorism courses.

Technology is another area where Axis Security has been able to add value. A digital Daily Occurrence Book (DOB) and fast-field forms on iPads have been implemented to reduce paper usage and provide accurate, real-time documentation, while an automated parking system has helped to streamline parking in the busy site. TimeGate scheduling is also being utilised, providing the security supervisor with a simple method for organising holidays and shift patterns.

“These technologies are helping to ensure the officers are as efficient and effective as possible,” adds Jerry. “For example, Track Tik, our new mobile patrol app, allows us to simply record each patrol, not only providing accountability, but also alerting officers to take extra care if we identify an area of particular concern.

“Axis Security has proven that they listen to our needs, and will provide specific solutions, rather than treating us as a one size fits all outfit,” concludes Jerry.
