Working with Hosking Associates
"We needed to bring someone in who would truly support our health and safety requirements and with whom we felt we could work. Health and Safety, particularly on construction sites, is of paramount importance, “Everyone Home Safe Every Day” (a Network Rail motto) is at the heart of what we believe," said Helen.
"We met with Louise (Hosking) and her team, who came to see us, and made the appointment within days. We felt comfortable with their approach, openness and honesty and with the breadth and depth of their knowledge. Most important of all is that they communicate so well. We felt that there was a very good fit and appreciated the straightforward and transparent approach."
Hosking Associates was appointed in March 2015 - reviewing all aspects of health and safety and how they apply to Scorpos, including the new Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM15). The company also reviewed Scorpos' health and safety submission to ACCLAIM - with the certificate being awarded in June, and have guided Scorpos successfully through their ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OSHAS 18001 surveillance audits.
"Hosking Associates is very professional. The team are very attentive and we are really pleased with the work undertaken – they are the right fit."
Louise Hosking added: “It is important for all stakeholders to understand their responsibilities fully during the placement of temporary agency workers in potentially high risk working environments. Scorpos is a very forward thinking company with extremely high standards. They have plans for potential growth, and safety, health & sustainability are very much part of this. They have been receptive and appreciative of all the recommendations we have made. "
