Healthy win­ning record for home provider

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

merger of KNH and Kirklees Coun­cil’s build­ing ser­vices. So­cial hous­ing provider KNH achieved a rat­ing of “ex­cel­lent” in the Safe Mark au­dit – the high­est pos­si­ble score.

To achieve this, KNH had to con­sis­tently demon­strate its com­mit­ment to main­tain­ing the strictest safety stan­dards and rig­or­ous safety man­age­ment sys­tems at its con­struc­tion sites and de­pots across the district.

The re­cent au­dit in­cluded a de­tailed in­spec­tion of health and safety man­age­ment sys­tems and op­er­a­tional prac­tices at prop­erty ser­vices’ sites around Kirklees.

Phil Moul­son, health and safety ad­viser for NHBC, said: “Over­all, the health and safety man­age­ment sys­tem op­er­ated by Kirklees Neigh­bour­hood Hous­ing is ex­cel­lent.

“They con­tinue to recog­nise that this is achieved by in­vest­ing in their peo­ple, fit-for-pur­pose sys­tems and user-friendly poli­cies, as well as a cul­ture of con­tin­u­ous im­prove­ment. Their ap­proach should be ap­plauded as the gold stan­dard in health and safety man­age­ment.”

KNH chief ex­ec­u­tive Liz Cook said: “This re­ally is a great achieve­ment for our prop­erty ser­vices team and for KNH.

“The health and safety of our peo­ple, our ten­ants and our work­ing en­vi­ron­ment is of the ut­most im­por­tance to us.

“Our teams work tire­lessly to en­sure this and it’s fan­tas­tic to see it recog­nised yet again by an in­de­pen­dent au­dit through the NHBC.”
