Intelect win Gold Rospa Award for safety

Intelect is celebrating after landing an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Intelect has received a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Nathan Jones, QHSE Manager, said: “I'm really proud of the team at Intelect, who's hard work has paid dividends this year, seeing us progress from a Silver to the Gold Award!”

Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards scheme is the longest-running of its kind in the UK, but it receives entries from organisations around the world, making it one of the most sought-after global accolades in health and safety.

“RoSPA wants every employee, wherever they are, to work safe in the knowledge that they will be going home unharmed and healthy at the end of every day. The RoSPA Award winners are vital to help achieve this goal, as by entering they are driving up standards and setting new benchmarks for organisations everywhere. Currently, around 7million people are directly impacted by the RoSPA Awards, but the scheme’s influence is even wider.”

The majority of awards are non-competitive and mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards, orders of distinction and the Patron’s Award are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.

Competitive awards go to the best entries in 24 industry sectors including construction, healthcare, transport and logistics, engineering, manufacturing and education.

There are specialist awards for health at work, environmental management, safety delivered outside of the workplace, and fleet safety, and excellence trophies for the best international organisation, new entry, workforce involvement, leisure organisation, and organisation operating or based in Scotland. RoSPA’s top accolade is the Sir George Earle Trophy.

Intelect achieves approval to the Construction Products Standards

Intelect now holds both ISO 9001, ISO 45001 and EN 1090 UKAS approved certifications from Lloyd's Register. The combination of approvals means that their customers can purchase steel structures from one source with improved lead times and in full compliance with CE and safety regulations. As a result, this gives Intelect a greater scope of coverage, more so than many other companies supplying the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), Renewable Energy, Heavy, and Utilities Industries.

Compliance with EN 1090-1 enables Intelect to design and fabricate structures. These approvals demonstrate that Intelect has undergone and passed a rigorous audit, where their capability to comply with the current best practices employed in the Construction Sector was reviewed in detail.

Nathan Jones – Intelect’s Group QHSE Manger, said:

"The introduction of the Construction Products Regulation (CPR 305/2011) is an important milestone in the Construction & Civil Engineering sector, one we recognise and take seriously. Lloyd's Register is regarded as one of the leading authorities in the industry and has previously demonstrated their ability to perform efficiently during our ISO 9001 and ISO 45001 assessment. This supported our decision to pursue EN 1090-1 approval, by again working with Lloyd's Register, who have demonstrated a high level of knowledge and have been helpful throughout the entire process in supporting our intention to issue our products endorsed with the CE Mark."

Jonathan Smithies – Intelect’s Design Engineering Manager, said:

“We are proud to achieve this accreditation; we have invested heavily in recent years in this area of the business to ensure our in-house design and engineering team are employing market leading services to our clients. This investment allows us to use the latest 3D scanning, design and augmented reality tools to visualise for clients their finished projects before we make the first cut”.

What is the Construction Products Regulation CPR 305/2011?

The Construction Products Regulation (CPR 305/2011) applies to manufacturers, distributors and fabricators of construction products within the European economic area.

To successfully comply with these regulations companies must undergo an assessment by a notified body such as Lloyd's Register, and prove their systems and products are fully compliant with all aspects of these regulations. If the organisation is successful, they are then awarded the CPR Certification. This enables them to mark their products with CE Marking indicating their processes and products are fully in compliance and can be marketed across the region without additional testing or barriers to trade.

International Safety Award

Intelect receives International Safety Award

All four Intelect businesses have been awarded International Safety Award with a Merit from the British Safety Council.

Now in their 62nd year, the International Safety Awards recognise and celebrate organisations from around the world which have demonstrated to the satisfaction of the scheme’s independent judges their commitment to preventing workplace injuries and work-related ill health during the previous calendar year. The awards also recognise organisations that have shown commitment to well-being and mental health at work.

Since its foundation in 1957, the British Safety Council has campaigned tirelessly to protect workers from accidents, hazards and unsafe conditions, and played a decisive role in the political process that has led to the adoption of landmark safety legislation in the UK. Its members in more than 60 countries are committed to protecting and improving the well-being of workers, believing that a healthy and safe work environment is also good for business.

Nathan Jones, QHSE Manager of Intelect, commented: “We are very proud of this year’s bids the scores have been significantly improved and reflect the investment of the past year."

This year also sees one of the Intelect team, Charlie Schumm, nominated for Young Health and Safety Champion of the Year’ award, results of which follow later this month.

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, congratulated Intelect on their success in winning an International Safety Award 2020 with a Pass: “The British Safety Council commends Intelect on their achievement. The award is in recognition of their commitment and efforts to keep their employees and workplaces free of injury and ill health.

“The vision of the British Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through work – anywhere in the world. Realising it requires more than legislation; people committed to health and safety, and increasingly also to workplace wellbeing, make it a reality and inspire others to create workplaces that are a key force for good.

“The long list of winners of the International Safety Awards, demonstrates that an increasing number of companies recognise that sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks is a business enabler, benefiting employees, organisations and society as a whole. By celebrating the achievements of the 509 winners of the 2020 International Safety Awards and 62 years of improving health and safety standards around the world, we encourage other organisations to follow their lead and place employees’ health and safety at the heart of their business.”
“Our warmest congratulations to Intelect. All of those working at Intelect should be rightly proud of their achievement.”

Material Handling Platform

Project Pelican

Case Study : Project Pelican

Intelect were contracted by KP Snacks to provide a total turn-key solution for a large project.

Prior to the project commencing, members of Intelect’s Electrical and Mechanical team travelled to Germany to assess the equipment and running order of two lines in a different factory that we had been contracted to decommission and relocate to the UK.

The project aim was to install two full process lines for the client, for two of their most popular products. Each line and platform had its own task to achieve within this process, in order for the products to reach the packing hall to be packaged, boxed and shipped.

As well as overseeing the project from a lead CDM role, Intelect were also contracted by KP Snacks to design, fabricate and install a series of hygienic platforms in accordance to BSEN1090. The platform design was developed in collaboration with Daxner to ensure access to their machinery was achieved to the British Standards. The platforms were also built with a hygienic design in mind, to ensure that they were easy to clean and maintain.

The platforms produced during these works included:

  • Material Handling Platform
  • Big Bag Station Platform
  • Allergen Platform
  • Compressor Platform
  • Bespoke Line Platforms

The high standard of work carried out from the design through to the fabrication and installation were shown across each individual platform.

On average, around 30 Intelect employees, across range of capabilities, were working on the site at any one time, along with additional subcontractors, who we were also responsible for.

The entire project was completed to the highest standards and to the expectations of the client, who also complimented us for our management, supervision and support throughout the project.
