Michael Kinsella Christmas Advent Blog

In the ninth of our Christmas Advent Blogs, our SHEQ Manager Melissa Fazackerley asks our Cladding Operative Michael Kinsella the following question –


As someone involved in our SHEQ Committee, how far do you think Longworth have come in terms of communication when it comes to SHEQ?


As someone who is involved with the SHEQ Committee at Longworth I get to see how much the company is trying to become involved as much as they can.  All the staff on the committee are keen to participate when it comes to health and safety and helping people understand it more.

It is not just the operatives on site either. Office staff are always pushing us to help us think about whether or not there is a better way to do something or question if something isn’t right.

I think being part of this committee is showing that the company wants to hear our opinions and ideas and is giving us the opportunity to be heard.

Our committee is spread throughout all departments of the company from installation teams to the directors. It’s good to see that our opinions are being formally minuted and put into action.  This ensures positive changes are made for the business and employees.
