A Yorkshire HR and employment law firm is set to expand its health and safety division portfolio after securing contracts worth £30,000 with two of Yorkshire and Lancashire’s largest manufacturing companies.
Howarths People and Safety Management, based in Cleckheaton, has agreed a two year contract to deliver on-site health and safety support to Bolton based manufacturer Richard Hough Limited.
The company, which has more than 30 employees, manufactures specialist squeezing, calendaring and supercalendar rolls used in the textile production, paper manufacturing and vehicle building industries.
Howarths will work with the firm to deliver ongoing health and safety support, including risk assessments, machinery maintenance checks and safer working practices.
A second new contract will see Howarths deliver technical health and safety support and health and safety culture training to flexible hose technology manufacturer, FTL Company Limited, based in Leeds.
FTL Company Limited appointed Howarths having used the company to deliver its employment law requirements over recent years.
Gavin Howarth, managing director at Howarths, said: “Health and safety is of the upmost importance in the manufacturing sector. Richard Hough Limited operates large-scale machinery across a 43,000 square foot site, meaning an intensive, hands-on and proactive approach to safe working practices is vital.
“Ensuring that teams are bought in to a strong culture of effective health and safety practices is also paramount, and we look forward to working one-to-one with staff at FTL to further develop the awareness already in place.”
In addition to on-site support, the Howarths health and safety division supports clients with health and safety administration including accreditations, supporting documentation and health and safety insurance.
