FENLANDER: Business praises council and HSE for helping improve standards
A BUSINESS has praised Fenland District Council for its part in helping to improve health and safety standards at its site in March.
Mark White, director of health and safety at Tradelink Windows, was speaking after officers from FDC and the Health and Safety Executive had attended the company’s health and safety open day.
Dawn Sadler, FDC’s senior environmental health officer, and Linda-Jane Rigby, the local HSE inspector, visited Tradelink’s three main workshops in Marwick Road. They offered some advice, including the best ways to prevent slips and trips and falls from height.
Mr White praised their “valuable feedback and advice”. “We were delighted that Fenland District Council and the Health and Safety Executive were willing to assist us in improving standards at the site,” he said. “We employ more than 100 people, many from the local areas, and take our health and safety obligations very seriously.”
Ms Sadler said that having a joint visit with the HSE was “a real bonus”: “Working in partnership in this way definitely benefits all concerned.”
Councillor Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for environmental services, said: “We are always looking at new ways to help Fenland businesses improve their health and safety management. Working on joint initiatives like this ensures that we are giving out the best possible advice and helping to make everyone safe in the workplace.”
