Curtis Furniture, manufacturers and suppliers of bespoke bedroom furniture to the hospitality industry, is leading the way in environmental management and health and safety thanks to three recent industry accreditations.
The first accreditation awarded to Curtis Furniture is Constructionline Gold level membership. The Constructionline scheme provides key construction industry stakeholders peace of mind that members have met the compliance criteria across a series of modules required by buyers. This increased level of scrutiny and assurance set out by Constructionline demonstrates Curtis Furniture’s commitment to environmental and quality management.
In conjunction with Constructionline, Curtis Furniture has achieved SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) accreditation which promotes standards of health and safety for contractors and is backed by the HSE.
The third accreditation, IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) membership, which provides information and tools to safeguard employees and the business, has been gained by Curtis Furniture’s Finance Director Andrew Ross.
IOSH is a Chartered body for health and safety practitioners and aims to significantly influence the direction of health and safety policy in the UK and internationally. The IOSH ‘stamp of excellence’ covers risk management, environmental protection, healthcare, hygiene, education and quality management.
Andrew comments; “To achieve the qualification, I had to demonstrate an understanding in legislation, in identifying workplace hazards and in managing risks. At Curtis Furniture, we are proud of our heritage and value our workforce. Having the skills and knowledge around health and safety best practice is especially beneficial to all our employees. We are privileged to be leading the way for bespoke furniture manufacturers in recognising the importance of implementing control measures and demonstrating a robust health and safety management system.”
