Broadland Housing has been shortlisted for the ASCP ‘Electrical Contractor of the Year’ category in one of the sector’s most sought-after awards.
The ASCP Safety & Compliance Awards reward outstanding individuals and organisations who go the extra mile to ensure safe and compliant working practices to safeguard tenants, staff and property, finding new or innovative ways to improve living environments and communities.
The Broadland electrical team, led by Gerry Claxton, was shortlisted for its achievements in 2018, which include designing and rewiring 2 large sheltered housing schemes and installing a new fire alarm system. The team has also been installing smart heating controls into tenants’ homes with a low-energy rating. All the work was done by Broadland’s in-house team, where previously the work would have gone out to subcontractors. Broadland has invested heavily in training for the workforce, and the electrical team recently gained membership of the ECA. This is in addition to its ongoing NICEIC Approved Contractor registration. The team has also recently achieved BAFE SP203-4 emergency lighting accreditation and has applied for BAFE accreditation for fire alarms.
Claire Heyes, Chief Executive of the Association of Safety and Compliance Professionals (ASCP) said:
“The ASCP Safety & Compliance awards recognise the achievements of inspirational individuals and organisations within the social housing and facilities management sectors. A record number of high-quality entries were received this year for the ASCP Safety & Compliance awards, so a well-deserved congratulations goes to all those shortlisted, it is a great achievement!”
The Awards show is one of the highlights of the ASCP Safety & Compliance Conference & Exhibition, taking place on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th April 2019.
