saha wins gas safety award!
At the recent AGSM (Association of Gas Safety Managers) National Gas Safety Awards which were held at Hinckley Island Hotel in Leicester on 26th April 2017, saha were shortlisted for the Gas Safety Staff Training & Development Award. We were up against nine other nominees, among which were large organisations such as Keepmoat, Lakehouse, SGN and Worcester Bosch.
The award was to recognise that a crucial part of managing gas safety is to ensure that the gas team and any front line staff who need to be aware of gas safety issues are well trained and up to date in their knowledge and skill set.
saha were nominated for this award due to their commitment in ensuring front line staff (Asset Management Team, Housing Management Team and CSC staff) met and exceeded the above requirements.
This was demonstrated by saha staff attending an intensive training course and undertaking a written exam in Gas Safety Awareness, with all passing and being awarded a NVQ Level 1 (Housing Management Team and CSC staff) or Level 2 (Asset Management Team) in Gas Safety Awareness.
It was therefore a massive achievement that saha were announced as winners of this award at the Awards Ceremony and there to collect it on saha’s behalf was Graham Smith-Coles, Audit and Compliance Officer, who was presented with the trophy by the Managing Director of Potterton, the sponsors of the award and celebrity, Patrick Monahan.
