Health and Safety

 

 

At Optima, we are wholly committed to ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of all of our employees. At the same time, being a product design, manufacture, and installation company, we completely recognise our responsibility towards other people who may be affected by our activities.

As part of our Health and Safety policy, we ensure that the necessary steps and processes are in place to guarantee that our statutory duties are met and exceeded.

As part of this, every one of our employees receives the necessary training and information to enable them to safely perform their daily activities. We also work hard to make certain that all subcontractors employed under Optima’s operations, competently manage the Health and Safety of all staff involved on site, in addition to providing requisite levels of information, instruction, training, and supervision.

RoSPA Gold award 2018

Here at Optima, we are continually reviewing, improving and developing our performance in all areas. As a result, our unrivalled dedication and continued effort in the development of our health and safety management has been recognised.

We are extremely proud to have been accredited with the highly coveted Gold Health and Safety Award in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 as awarded by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

We are proud to be a reputable company with exceptional products, offering an unrivalled service. For us, quality is about continually providing our clients with extremely high levels of expert designs, quality products, flawless installations and thorough aftercare solutions that exceed expectations.

Our dedication to delivering quality has set us aside from our competitors; shown through high levels of customer satisfaction, repeat business, and continual new referrals. Accordingly, for Optima, quality has become a motivator for business success and our commitment to guaranteeing this industry-leading quality service runs through all that we do here at Optima.

Each and every Optima member of staff is passionate about achieving this aim; from our office-based teams to our directly employed workforce, right through to all of our sub-contractors.

The way that we operate and manage our projects to provide exceptional product quality and service is defined within our Business Management System (BMS). This is simply a framework within which we work, which is then tailored to suit each of our client’s individual needs. This process ensures that every project is managed in the most effective, proactive and specifically tailored way possible.

Procedures outlined in this BMS describe a typical project lifecycle at Optima; from receipt of initial enquiry right through to project handover. Our BMS works to outline design, procurement, health and safety, and Quality management tasks, including the processes of internal audit and other mechanisms for quality and business improvement.

Product quality is intrinsic to the success of Optima. Consequently, we are constantly testing and retesting for “fit for purpose” quality at procedural, system and process levels.

Following an independent assessment by Exova BM TRADA, Optima Contracting Ltd and Optima Products Ltd obtained ISO 9001:2015 accreditation.
