Here at SMAS Worksafe, we’re always looking to reach out to our members to make sure they’re getting the support they need and the service they expect. We recently caught up with one of our members to ask about our service and if there was anything we could do to make their life easier.
Rooms and Views are an award-winning manufacturer of beautiful, high-quality PVC-U windows, doors and conservatories. They have a strong reputation for providing secure, energy-efficient products for new build, commercial, trade and private clients.
A business of just under 100 employees, R&V have two manufacturing facilities in North and South Wales that design, produce and install competitively priced, premium quality windows, doors and conservatories that satisfy strict safety and security standards, environmental requirements, and the exact needs of our clients.
Their wide-ranging experience and commitment to quality, service delivery and reliability has enabled them to enjoy long-term mutually beneficial relationships with many of the UK’s leading house builders and they keep their health & safety standards as high as possible through an SSIP certificate with SMAS Worksafe.
The business uses two types of SMAS Worksafe assessment, one for each of their facilities, Steve Dickinson, Health & Safety Manager at R&V explains why:
“We have the standard SMAS for South Wales, but as Buckley is our Head Office and has the group accounts department, I thought it best to take the SMAS Worksafe PQQ Package which includes Health & Safety, Environmental, Quality Management and Finance and Business Standing.”
Our Worksafe PQQ package’s help businesses to go beyond just health & safety. Worksafe PQQ gives you the ability to submit documentation you have in areas such as environmental, quality management, finance and modern slavery. Our team of in-house assessors will also give you environmental and quality management reviews and recommendations so that you can continue to remain compliant and improve your policies.
Like many businesses, R&V use multiple SSIP providers to meet their client’s requests but have found using SMAS Worksafe easier than other providers;
“We have SMAS, CHAS and Constructionline Membership to meet the demands of our clients but out of them, SMAS Worksafe is far superior in every way, from application to completion. Saving documentation for renewal is a really nice touch and saves us time when our certificate is due to expire.
We’ve been with SMAS Worksafe since 2017 and I’ve been extremely satisfied with the service and help we receive. The portal is really easy to use and if we do ever get stuck we can use the in-house assessors to sort it out, which makes the application extremely time effective and allows us to keep working for our clients.”
See if SMAS Worksafe can help you with your existing clients or to gain more opportunities with other clients with an SSIP assessment.
If you currently require SSIP but are not tied to one provider, you can begin a SMAS Worksafe accreditation here and see for yourself why we’re the UK’s SSIP Scheme of choice.
