23rd January 2012by aperturemarketingukNews0

Leading line marking company Riggotts has invested £60,000 in a bid to become the safest road and surface marking company in the UK.

The Nottinghamshire-based firm, which specialises in line marking for car parks, airfields and roads, is carrying out an overhaul of its health, safety and environmental policies. Riggotts aim to achieve a level of accreditation which no other UK line marking company holds. As part of their investment, the company has taken on Graham Bell CMIOSH, MIIRSM, RSP, DGSA, a quality, health, safety and environmental consultant.

He has more than 20 years of experience across the transport and distribution, engineering, oil, chemical, quarry and construction industries. Graham said: “Riggotts already has an excellent Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental record, but we want to take it to the next level and make it even better by achieving the highest levels of ISO accreditation possible. “Riggotts work can be dangerous, they deal with heavy equipment and flammable/toxic paint.

It’s vital that the very best health and safety policies are in place in order to avoid any incidents occurring.” Explains Darren Riggott, director for Riggotts: “The company is introducing rigorous new health/safety requirements and quality standards, these take into consideration the environment the teams work in. We’ve brought in new rules and regulations throughout the whole business, all staff from management level down will be re-trained.

“Manuals detailing the changes will be issued to each and every person working for the company once everything is in place. We’ll be carrying out regular, unannounced site inspections to make sure that our new high standards are maintained across the UK.

“It’s about ensuring our employees are safe, as well as the people and environment around them.”

The company’s work is being carried out in line with the Integrated Business Management System (IBMS) framework, a prestigious accreditation that combines the ISO9001 (Quality Management), ISO14001 (Environmental Management), OHSAS18001 (Occupational Health and Safety) and the COPC Rel.4.0 (Customer Operations Performance Centre) standards. Graham continued: “We’re making these changes with the aim of achieving the IBMS accreditation early next year.

It’s a hugely coveted certificate which would prove Riggotts’ unrivalled dedication to quality health, safety and the environment. “We believe we would be the first line marking company in the UK to hold such a high level of accreditation, so we are working extremely hard to ensure we get there!

“Our motivation for doing all this is simple, we care about the people who work for us, the people who we work for and the environment we all work in.” Riggotts already boasts a number of health and safety accreditations, including the sought after Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) gold medal, Safecontractor approval, CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) and CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) gold certification.

Riggotts was asked to match to the architect’s exact colour code, as well as guarantee completion of the area 1 week before the opening of the 2012 London Olympic Games. All those involved in the Olympics were impressed with the organisation, implementation and turnaround of the project.
