Energetics’ Quality, Safety & Environmental Manager, Martin Burke, has headed up a team ensuring the successful completion of the Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA) surveillance audits required by ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 accreditation.
Energetics was originally awarded these globally recognised accreditations in 2015 as formal confirmation of the high standards we had already been achieving for over 10 years.
To be awarded the ISO 14001 accreditation, the QSE team demonstrated how we have used tools recommended by the International Organisation for Standardization, to manage our environmental responsibilities. Furthermore, our audit revealed that we are measuring and improving our environmental impact.
Having ensured Energetics are adhering to important measures for the safety of employees in all areas of the business, we have also been reaccredited with OHSAS 18001, a standard created by the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series Project Group. At Energetics, Health & Safety has always been at the forefront of our design and build activities, and we are extremely proud of the records we have achieved.
Martin Burke comments “These key ISO accreditations are a must for Energetics as a growing organisation entering new markets. Whilst representing areas of importance to all of our stakeholders, the renewal of our accreditations shows our commitment in our ambitions to be a leading multi utility connections provider.”
David Murray has joined Energetics’ Yorkshire office as Business Development Manager, responsible for the multi-utility connections service provider’s housing customers.
Murray was most recently Sales Manager for building materials supplier Marshalls in West and North Yorkshire. He has more than 17 years experience in technical and commercial sales, including time spent managing land acquisitions for Taylor Wimpey in Sheffield.
“It is a really exciting time to join Energetics,” Murray said. “Our Yorkshire operation has doubled over the past year and I want to continue this success, by working with my existing housing sector contacts and by continuing to grow our customer base.
“Like many of my colleagues in Barnsley, I have spent most of my career in Yorkshire and was exposed to the housing sector from an early age, as my father Steve has held senior positions with many of the region’s major housebuilders. As a result, I have good local market knowledge and understand the priorities of our Yorkshire customers, along with the challenges they face.
“My key message to customers is that as one of the country’s largest independent connections providers, Energetics has the skills and resources to connect new homes to the electricity, gas and water across Yorkshire quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively and brings much-welcomed competition.”
Staff at Coleshill House were asked to dig deep last week and purchase cakes in support of the Duke of Edinburgh Diamond Challenge.
Jessica Begley, a Design Administrator in the Midlands, asked her colleagues if they would be willing to help her sister Charlotte by participating in both the buying and eating of cake in order to raise money as part of the Diamond Challenge for Charlottes D of E Award.
Charlotte, aged 19, has been involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme for 4 years and gladly accepted the Diamond Challenge to raise £60 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the scheme.
Both Charlotte and Jess are accomplished bakers and produced a fine display of cupcakes, cookies and truffles.
The staff at Coleshill House obviously have a sweet tooth as Charlotte exceeded expectations and raised over £100 for the charity which helps to support disadvantaged and vulnerable young people.
Energetics have recently renewed our Patron Membership with The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE).
CIBSE is the professional body set up in 1976 that supports a combination of practices associated with building services engineering, and provides information services whilst also offering Patron members like Energetics, the opportunity to influence the sector with knowledge sharing and expertise.
With many of Energetics employees studying towards professional qualifications, CIBSE is also the organisation that promotes engineering qualifications by accrediting courses and approving workbased training programmes such as Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer and Engineering Technician.
Commenting on the renewal of Energetics’ Patron Membership, Ray Williams, Development Director, says: “Our in-house experts are often consulted by the wider industry to provide insight on multi-utility connections and our Patron Membership to CIBSE will provide another platform for knowledge-sharing with our peers.”
Energetics staff at The Brew House, Warrington, put on their aprons and baked cakes all in the name of charity.
Staff not only paid for the privilege of eating cake, but also took part in a ‘bake off’ competition similar to the popular TV programme.
The winning cakes and champion bakers were as follows:
|Lemon Layer Cake||Laura Pettett||1st|
|Ginger Parkin||Howard Smith||2nd|
|Red Velvet Cake||Yvonne Harris||3rd|
|Date and Walnut loaf cake||Richard Welsby||Special Commendation|
|Hazelnut Macaroons||Laura Pettett||Special Commendation|
A total of £36 was raised which will help Macmillan to continually provide help and support not only for cancer patients but for their families too.
With health and safety high on the agenda for Energetics, our QSE teams have recently been recognised by the senior management for the work done maintaining a good track record for reported incidents. This comes as the business achieves a prestigious International Safety Award from The British Safety Council.
Members from the QSE teams headed up by QSE Manager, Martin Burke, have all contributed to Energetics’ success by going above and beyond their roles as QSE Advisors conducting regular site reviews and audits of the site teams. Additional work includes assisting the internal legal teams with the interpretation of environmental reports; examining site investigation reports, and providing a summary of site visits covering what environmental hazards exist on the site, what remediation works are required to be carried out, and whether or not these have been carried out.
Certain staff have gone even further to help Energetics achieve a strong track record, such as Paul Smith based in Scotland, who has recently been delivering manual handling training and emergency first aid training for operatives/apprentices in Scotland and the north of England, with further sessions planned soon for operatives in the Midlands. Paul developed the emergency first aid course himself, and included subject areas not normally studied in emergency first aid (i.e. electrocution and crush injuries).
This team effort has led the company to success for a second year running being recognised at the British Safety Council’s 2015 International Safety Awards. Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Energetics on their success in winning an International Safety Award for 2016: “The award is in recognition of Energetics’ commitment and effort to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health. Our warmest congratulations.”
Energetics’ QSE Manager, Martin Burke concludes “We’ve been working hard to maintain high health and safety standards both for the benefit of our employees, but also to prove to our customers that we provide the highest quality service in all aspects of our work designing and installing multi utility connections.”
