St Leger Homes is pleased to announce that it has achieved a five star rating from the British Safety Council – and has also retained the international ISO 45001 accreditation for health and safety.
This is the 11th time that St Leger Homes – the organisation that manages around 20,000 properties on behalf of Doncaster Council - has secured the British Safety Council five star rating, which has been given in recognition of their approach to health and safety management.
The British Safety Council provides trusted guidance on excellent health, safety and environmental management, as well as campaigning to protect people from accidents, hazards and unsafe working conditions. Their independent audit measured St Leger Homes’ performance against key health and safety management best practice indicators and a detailed review of over sixty component elements. The audit process also acknowledges St Leger Homes’ commitment towards the continual improvement of health and safety management systems.
ISO 45001 is the international standard for occupational health and safety which protects both employees and the public from work-related accidents and diseases.
Dave Richmond, Chief Executive of St Leger Homes, said:
“We are proud and delighted to have achieved both of these ratings and accreditations in recognition of the way that we manage health and safety in our organisation.
“Receiving the five star rating from the British Safety Council for the 11th time shows that year after year we continue to take health and safety incredibly seriously and have made it an integral part of the work we do each and every day.
“Ensuring the safety of our staff and tenants is vitally important to us. This can also be seen in the work we have carried out in recent years to keep improving fire safety in our properties – such as the installation of sprinkler systems in our high-rise buildings, and the fire training exercise carried out at Shaftesbury House in Intake this month.”
