Specsavers Antrim is now a double Platinum Award holder. Having achieved Platinum Employer status last summer, the Castle Mall store has now been awarded the prestigious Health and Safety Excellence Platinum Award by leading certification and verification company Santia.
Health and safety culture
Store Director, Davin Quinn, said: 'Developing a Health and Safety culture in a busy retail environment is not only important for our customers but for our staff as well. There are so many potential risks in a store from the most extreme such as fire and electrical hazards, to the more common slips, trips and falls.'
Achieving the highest standard
'Since opening the store five years ago, we have been audited on an annual basis to ensure that our health and safety policies and procedures are fit for purpose and appropriate to our environment. It is a credit to the team that we have worked successfully through every level from bronze, silver and gold, to now reach Platinum, the highest standard which Santia awards.'
Dedication and commitment
In August 2016, Specsavers Antrim achieved the externally-ratified Platinum Employer status for excelling in all aspects of personnel development. This latest rigorous assessment by Santia revealed the store’s dedication and commitment to creating and maintaining optimum health and safety procedures and risk management for the mutual benefit of its customers and staff.
