Weatherproofing Advisors attaches the greatest importance to health and safety. The company has even created a memorable marketing campaign around safety super-hero ‘R.U. McSafe’ – to highlight its zero-tolerance approach to safety on-site. When director James Turner was made aware of the Fixsafe System for safe replacement of roofing sheets, a trial was immediately set up. He explained: “Fragile roofs are one of the biggest safety hazards facing construction workers, accounting for almost one fift h of all the fatal accidents which result from falls from height in the construction industry. “Filon’s Fixsafe system removes the need for operatives to access fragile roofs, be-cause the entire process can be carried out from below, using a scissor lift . This makes the whole process significantly safer and more controllable. Our initial trial confirmed that Fixsafe is also very practical and simple-to-use on-site …and it allows whole the process to be carried out without the additional time and costs involved in setting up scaff olding and safety nets. We have now initiated a policy of ‘Fixsafe first’ for all our projects." www.filon.co.uk SPACEINVADER PREPARES FOR LANDING IN LEEDS Manchester based interior design specialist, SpaceInvader, is expanding across the Pennines with a substantial new off ice in Leeds. The off ice is the company’s third, adding to its Manchester base and London studio. SpaceInvader has enjoyed a great deal of success in Leeds recently, with standout projects including SkyBet’s off ices in Wellington Place and ongoing work with Zenith at Kirkstall Forge. John Williams, director of SpaceInvader, said: “As the amount of business we’ve won in the city has grown, it’s become increasingly important for us to create a home for ourselves. The closer proximity to our ongoing and future projects will allow us to ensure that we provide the best possible service for our clients. Becoming part of the Southerns Group has allowed us to considerably accelerate the move and shows the strength of support for SpaceInvader.” SpaceInvader anticipates it will create 30 new jobs at the Leeds studio in the future. www.spaceinvaderdesign.co.uk TAKING THE CHSA ACCREDITATION SCHEMES TO THE CLEANING SHOW The Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) will be spreading the word about its Accreditation Schemes at the Cleaning Show, joining the British Cleaning Council (BCC) on stand number B30. “Our Accreditation Schemes for Soft Tissue, Plastic Refuse Sacks and Industrial Cotton Mops are recognised as driving up standards,” explained Mike Stubbs, chairman of the CHSA Accreditation Schemes. “Supported by a rigorous auditing process, they make sure that what’s on the box is in the box. “This year we launched an Accredited Distributors Scheme and invited all our distributor members to apply for membership. We’re delighted to be able to give them this opportunity to apply for a marque that will signal their commitment to supplying product that can be relied upon to meet the Scheme Standards and the CHSA Code of Practice.” Although the Schemes improved standards significantly, four years ago the Scheme Management Panels decided to further enhance them. This has resulted in even greater compliance. The Soft Tissue manufacturers are now achieving near 100 per cent compliance, with members of the Plastic Refuse Sack and Industrial Cotton Mop Schemes achieving similar conformance. www.chsa.co.uk
