The second audit took place on Monday 22nd February with a score of 80 per cent – equating to a company-wide improvement of three percent during just one year. A breakdown of their achievements is:
|Health and Safety||84%||83%|
This success follows a year of improvements across fabrication and office protocols including the introduction of new procedures and policies, a refreshed website and additional production premises.
Stuart Simpson, Contracts Director, said: “It is encouraging to know all our hard work and new working practices, not to mention investment in the Company, is paying off. And it is a reflection on the team that we are able to continue to make improvements right across the Company.
“By working together, this can only continue”.
* The Site Assessment was conducted under simulated conditions.
With space at a premium, Flare Products Limited, has taken over the lease of another unit to give them an overall 3,000 square feet of additional space.
Unit 15 is a mere 50 metres from their existing premises allowing production to continue as normal while the new unit is prepared for occupation. The increased space will enable the Company to streamline existing processes and incorporate new techniques to optimise its full potential.
Stuart Simpson, Contracts Director, commented: “We are delighted to be expanding. The new premises is literally across the carpark and gives us an additional 3,000 square feet of workspace which means we can continue to provide clients with the best in combustion technology”.
Flare Products plans to move into the unit in the next few weeks.
Stewartby based combustion engineers Flare Products Limited has launched an exciting new website www.flareproducts.co.uk. The fresh, clean design reflects the Company’s approach to projects and gives much more information than ever before.
With brand new case studies and Company information, the new website gives a fantastic insight in to what Flare Products can do to make your project a reality.
Working closely with you throughout the project; from design through fabrication and installation to commissioning, Flare Products will continue to care for your system as part of their ongoing service programme.
Contracts Director, Stuart Simpson commented: “We’re really pleased with the website, it’s been a while coming and has a fresh, new feel with lots of useful information for our clients”.
Nonsense Technology, Flare Products’ IT specialist, has been instrumental in creating the new look and feel of the website which will be regularly updated with case studies, technical information and all the things clients expect to see.
Each year, Flare Products has to prove its continued commitment to safe practices across all elements of the business: from workshop and fabrication to flare installation and commissioning. And each year, with changes to legislation and working practices, it gets harder. But like anything that improves the business it is worth the hard work and effort.
Stuart Simpson, Contracts Director, said: “It’s not just a question of meeting legal requirements, it’s about improving year on year and keeping the workforce safe.
“We are continually striving to improve and introducing new safe working policies and procedures. That’s the easy bit, making sure they are adhered to is harder. But everyone at Flare Products is committed to improving safety and quality.”
The next major step for Flare Products is ISO9001 accreditation.
