Deeside firm NSG UK secures gold medal for healthy and safety standards

A SCAFFOLDING firm based in Deeside has been awarded a gold medal for its sustained excellence in safety.

The medal was presented by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) after the NSG UK achieved six safety awards in a row.

Howard Satchell, compliance manager at NSG UK, based at Deeside Industrial Park, said: “Safety is paramount to the business so we are delighted to be recognised with the RoSPA award.

“It demonstrates to our clients and potential customers that we are a responsible and conscientious business that places health and safety as top priority.”

Mr Satchell said NSG had to provide the RoSPA with evidence of good health and safety management.

The company highlighted its excellent track record over the past year and its safety schemes developed and implemented by the shop-floor staff at NSG UK.

Mr Satchell added: “We felt it was important for them to have ownership.

“They are trained to monitor the health and safety actions of colleagues, make recommendations for on-site improvements and engage in regular meetings with senior managers.”

NSG UK managing director, Mike Carr, said: “We work closely with our employees and customers to continually improve our performance, and the gold medal is tribute to the hard work and dedication of the whole workforce.

“This is the sixth year on the run our safety performance has been recognised on a national level and we will endeavour to keep up our excellent record.”

A RoSPA spokesman said: “NSG UK has achieved a very high level of performance, demonstrating well-developed occupational health and safety management systems, outstanding control of risk and very low levels of error, harm and loss.”
