Skills & Accreditations
To ensure H&S operates to the highest standards we have been audited by SGS, an independent body recognised by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS), and awarded certification in 3 key areas of assessment.
ISO certification is a widely recognised symbol that an organisation's management systems are of the necessary standard and H&S have attained both the ISO 9001Quality Management standard and ISO 14001 Environmental standard.
Our commitment to the health, safety & well-being of our employees means we are also certified in ISO45001. The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts. It was based on earlier international standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001. We are one of the first SMB to obtain ISO45001
For more information about how we work please see our Policies section.
INVESTORS IN PEOPLE
Investors in People is recognised throughout the private and public sector as the de facto standard for organisations that aim to succeed through developing their people. It is a standard only awarded after a rigorous evaluation by independent assessors.
H&S value the skills of its workforce highly and are committed to their continuous development as part of an ongoing programme to improve the service we offer our clients.
H&S are members of Builder’s Profile, a data collection and distribution scheme which holds information in one source for pre-qualification requests. It is a paperless way for companies to access common pre-qualification data. All members of the scheme have access to this information but we can provide a link to the H&S profile if you contact
DULUX CONTRACT PARTNERSHIP
This approval is attained by a very small minority of decorating companies and Dulux only recommend suppliers who are part of the scheme. Partnership status is only awarded by Dulux after a stringent independent evaluation of the business, with particular emphasis on working practices and Health & Safety.
H&S scored over 85% in their 2014 workmanship assessment and this outstanding mark places us in the top 10% of Dulux Contract Partners.
The national Painting and Decorating Premier Trophy Awards have been recognising professional excellence since 1987.
H&S were winners in 2011 for Coworth Park and Chichely Hall, both of which were highly commended. In 2013 we won two further awards for Quintiles (very highly commended) and Equinox Gym (highly commended).
In 2014 H&S won the 'Decorative' Category outright for the Theatre Royal restoration.
GEORGIAN GROUP ARCHITECTURAL AWARDS 2013
The Theatre Royal, Drury Lane won the category ‘Restoration of a Georgian Interior’ for matching as closely as possible Benjamin Dean Wyatt’s original design.
