New Fire Extinguishers First Aid kits and Car Camera kits for Maxiflows Vehicle fleet

Maxiflows fleet of vehicles have now been fitted with new and improved Fire Extinguishers, First Aid kits and Car Camera kits. This is due to a drive to improve Health and Safety for our operatives for ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditation.

In the event of any vehicle accident photographic evidence can now be collected at the scene which should result in a more speedy resolve to any insurance claims. Also if any injuries should occur our operatives are able to offer first aid on the scene. All staff have received the necessary training in the usage of the First Aid kits and Fire Extinguishers.

Maxiflow score highly on Bentley Motors’ safety league table

Maxiflow High Scorers On Bentley Motors Health and Safety Table

Maxiflow are honoured to have received a top Health & Safety commendation from Bentley Motors!

For over a year, we at Maxiflow have been working in close partnership with Bentley. We have delivered a wide variety of building works at Bentley’s manufacturing facilities in Crewe, from major projects such as providing electrical cabling, drainage services and car park refurbishments to smaller projects such as window re-glazing and erecting signage.

This week, members of Bentley’s Construction Safety, Environmental & CDM (Construction Design Management) teams presented a Health & Safety Briefing to their contractors from across the United Kingdom. Almost 100 companies were involved in the presentation, which outlined results from a recent HSE Audit.

The presentation emphasised the importance of effective H&S practice by ranking the performance of contractors who have worked for Bentley in 2012. The ranking criteria gave precendece to contractors who had suffered no accidents, no H&S infractions and had reached full compliance from bodies such as CHAS and SAFEcontractor.

We at Maxiflow are delighted to reveal that we were named one of Bentley Motors’ top-performing contractors for 2012!

Achieving a quality score of 100%, Maxiflow scored highly for an outstanding track record which featured no accidents and no infractions. We were also commended for our RAMS (Risk Assessment Methods Statements) meeting Bentley’s exacting standards on each and every job.

Many of the companies featured on the league table are large-scale national companies that serve the entirety of the UK. We are extremely proud that our family-run local business was able to perform at such a high level and prove our worth alongside our contemporaries.

We would like to thank Bentley Motors for producing this presentation and report.

Introducing: The Maxiflow Safety Training Suite

Maxiflow Computers

Furthering our commitment to health and safety in the workplace, we at Maxiflow have introduced a new training facility for our employees.

Maxiflow have developed a package of custom training modules, designed to keep team members up-to-date with current safety regulations, as well as acting as a refresher for existing knowledge and skills.

All of these training modules are available online for completion at any time of day, but we decided to go the extra step and provide our team members with a dedicated suite of computers. This allows us to provide immediate technical support and removes any technological barriers – after all, it’s unfair to demand that everyone we employ has their own personal computer at home.

A team member may have up to three modules to complete:

  1. Essentials – Training that applies to every member of staff.
  2. Division-specific – Training that is relevant to the needs of the team member’s day-to-day operations.
  3. Job-specific – Occasionally, training may be required for individual jobs or sites, so we have the facility to provide courses as necessary.

The courses cover everything from instructional videos to assessed tests, with certificates of completion issued at the end of each course.

We at Maxiflow would like to extend our gratitude to the everyone who has made this system possible.
