Foxwood Joinery has Successfully Achieved CHAS for 2018

Rawlings Safety & Training services are pleased to announce that we have assisted Foxwood Joinery Ltd in successfully achieving the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) Accreditation once again this year.

The aim of the Scheme is to improve health and safety standards across the construction industry and to reduce some of the inevitable duplication that exists when completing tender and pre-qualification applications.

Being CHAS accredited means that Foxwood Joinery Ltd have achieved nationally recognised benchmarks of acceptable health & safety standards.

Foxwood Joinery is a family-run joinery company established in 2010.

Directors John and James, along with their skilled and ever-increasing workforce, provide a high quality joinery service for the construction industry.

Foxwood Joinery are based in the North West and have covered many other regions throughout the country.

“We are keen to ensure we are continually ahead of the market when it comes to health and safety and safe-working legislation. As a result of the accolade, CHAS gives us a leading edge in the construction industry.”

Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, Merseyside Branch

LFC Events Team Site visit Anfield Liverpool FC, 14 March

Kevin Colleran and Shaun Baxter recently attended the IOSH Merseyside branch meeting at Anfield

The event was hosted by, Gillian Wood, CMIOSH, Senior Health and Safety Manager at Liverpool Football Club

Gillian’s role involves setting the Club’s health and safety strategy and supporting departmental managers and supervisors to manage operational safety and health.

Gillian also spoke about the Main Stand construction.

Development of the new Main Stand began on 8 December 2014 and included demolishing the roof structure, the rear two-storey extension and the events building. A new third tier added 8,500 seats and further work improved the sightlines on the terraces.

The development involved an eight-storey steel frame, which was built next to the retained terrace structure. In August 2015, the main primary roof truss, which weighs around 670,000 kg and is 15 m high and 140 m long, was lifted into place by two of the largest mobile cranes in the UK.

Carillion had to demolish the entire ground floor, including slabs and drainage, which were replaced with modern changing rooms, a media suite and catering facilities, with a coach drop-off area and car parking.

The new stand was opened on 9 September 2016 in time for the 2016-2017 season. With 20,500 capacity, it is one of the largest all-seater single stands in European football.

Thanks to all who supported including Jack Fox, stuart knowles Steven Gerard and the stadium tour guides. It was evident everyone enjoyed the afternoon.

Image result for Association for Project Safety

This course is primarily intended for design organisations currently operating in the UK construction sector who fulfil the role of Principal Designer on construction projects. It is aimed at duly technically competent organisations that require supplementary training in order to provide them with the additional necessary skills and knowledge necessary to accept such an appointment under CDM 2015 (on suitable projects for which they have an appropriate level of relevant experience). This course is ideal for design practices, engineering consultants and project management organisations who currently operate such an undertaking in Great Britain. Local Authority design and management departments may also find this course useful, particularly where they undertake a design role during the earlier stages of a project. In these circumstances they may well be deemed to attract the Principal Designer role, unless they have made other arrangements with a third party using a written appointment.
