Aug 20 2019 voestalpine Metsec achieves excellent grading from Considerate Constructors scheme Following a recent visit by monitors from the Considerate Constructors Scheme, voestalpine Metsec has been awarded a rating of ‘excellent’ across all areas of assessment. The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation established by the construction industry to improve its image. Companies and organisations voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by its Code of Considerate Practice, which is designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. The scheme is concerned with any area of construction activity, both on and off sites, which may have an impact on the industry’s image, mainly involving the general public, the workforce and the environment. Members of the scheme are subject to regular visits by scheme monitors who undertake assessments in five key areas; Care about Appearance, Respect the Community, Protect the Environment, Secure everyone’s Safety and Value their Workforce. The monitor’s report for voestalpine Metsec’s Oldbury-based design and manufacturing facilities recognised the company’s commitment to the scheme throughout all areas of operations. Of particular note were the number of external accreditations and certifications that the company has been awarded, staff training and development and environmental responsibility, with the majority of suppliers being within a 10-mile radius and zero waste going to landfill. Commenting on the achievement, Sales Director for Framing at voestalpine Metsec, states, “We recognise that maintaining our position as the industry’s leading designer and manufacturer of cold-rolled steel products is not just about the quality and performance of the products themselves; it requires a skilled and motivated workforce and a focussed approach to all areas of our operations. The Considerate Constructors Scheme embodies these values and we are thrilled to be recognised for our workplace practices and standards. “The ‘excellent’ rating demonstrates the efforts made by all our employees in creating an environment and culture that fosters success. It is further proof of our commitment to excellence and will spur us on as we strive for continued improvement.” Discover more about voestalpine Metsec today and explore our quality control measures with our Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental Policy Statement.
