Three Sixty shortlisted for Best Health and Safety in Construction Award
- Three Sixty, a profit-for-purpose construction company has been shortlisted for their work on a fire safety project following the 2017 Grenfell tragedy
- The project was commissioned by social housing landlord Stockport Homes Group
- The shortlisting is part of the Safety & Health Excellence Awards 2023
Following the 2017 Grenfell tragedy, housing associations across the UK have heavily invested in fire management and fire related control measures. Stockport Homes Group, Stockport’s largest landlord and social housing provider, prioritised investing in industry-leading fire safety projects well before Grenfell. Since the tragedy, the Group has continued to invest in health and safety projects including the one that Three Sixty has been shortlisted for – upgrading fire doors in high-rise tower blocks across the Borough.
“The Grenfell tragedy was a sobering event for everyone in the housing sector. Stockport Homes Group has always made providing excellent health and safety a priority, keeping both our staff and tenants safe and well. It is an honour to be recognised in this way for the work we have undertaken,” says Jenny Osbourne, Chair of the Board at Stockport Homes Group.
Three Sixty worked diligently to replace flat entrance doors and frames, cross corridor doors and frames and to install fireboard fanlights in Stockport Homes properties. All installation was done in accordance with BM TRADA regulations.
Through the years, Three Sixty has maintained a high track record of health and safety practices and has been shortlisted in and won a number of health and safety-related awards and is a holder of the prestigious ROSPA Gold award.
Executive Director of Operations at Three Sixty, John Bowker, says:
“We are delighted to be recognised for our continued commitment to health and safety. Being shortlisted out of a group of over 220 entrants is such a proud achievement for us. Whilst we never perform for the purpose of being shortlisted, we are proud that our passion for delivering excellent service has been noticed.”
The winners of the Safety & Health Excellence Awards will be revealed at a gala dinner on 26 April in Birmingham, hosted by Tess Daly.
