Safestyle UK, the country’s leading independent replacement window and door retailer has scooped two further major prizes at this year’s prestigious G07 Awards.
Held at the Birmingham’s Metropole Hotel, the high profile G Awards are open on an annual basis to all organisations in the glass, glazing and fenestration industries and aim to highlight and reward excellence in twelve different categories.
This year Safestyle UK were nominated and short-listed for two awards – the Health and Safety award and the highly prestigious Installer of the year award. More than 500 industry members applauded as Safestyle UK overcame stiff national competition to come away as resounding winners in both categories.
Safestyle UK’s Chairman, John Ross, commented: “We have won several awards in recent years but these latest honours are particularly important. We complete more than 800 installations every week – that’s a lot of installations! So we’re continually working hard and looking for ways to improve effectiveness and efficiency of our operations. Awards like these are important because they show our work is being recognised by the industry and more importantly, they go a long way towards acknowledging and rewarding all the effort our guys are putting in to make sure Safestyle’s performance is second to none.”
The Installer of the Year award was presented to Safestyle in recognition of the tremendous work that has gone into making one of the largest installation operations in the industry into one of the slickest and most efficient. This includes Safestyle’s recent measures to get their procedures BSI accredited – a process that is well on its way with one installations depot already having met all BSI standards and requirements. The award was collected by Andy Clegg, Head of Safestyle UK Installations.
To win the Health and Safety award, the Safestyle UK team specifically designed tailor-made packs and initiatives for each department in the company to ensure complete understanding of all health and safety rules and requirements. One of the proactive measures taken was to increase the safety of their female staff by providing free panic alarms. The award was collected by Gary Hoyle, Safestyle UK’s Health and Safety manager.
