Howarth Timber signs exclusive HazardCo agreement

Published:  16 October, 2013

Howarth Timber & Building Supplies is continuing to provide its customers with a comprehensive service after signing an exclusive agreement with on-site health and safety provider HazardCo.

HazardCo provides builders and other contractors with simple and practical packs to effectively deal with health and safety on-site, which can help them address legislative and regulatory requirements, as well as cutting down on potentially complicated and time-consuming paperwork.

HazardCo offers both site packs for use at one specific building site and team packs that are designed for use by a worker or team of workers who travel from site to site on a regular basis. Both packs include site and team specific plans, hazard boards, a training and induction kit, emergency procedures, as well as an accident reporting and investigation process to follow.

Builders can call in at their local Howarth Timber & Building Supplies branch and speak to staff about which pack is most suitable for their circumstances before signing up.

Mark Potter from HazardCo said: “Our goal is to help ensure everyone gets home safely at the end of each and every day and we’re confident this agreement with Howarth Timber and Building Supplies will see more builders and contractors protected than ever before.”

Neale Brewster from Howarth Timber & Building Supplies added: “We are constantly looking at ways that we can assist our customers in their day-to-day work and we feel strongly that the service provided by HazardCo is one that will provide them with a simple and effective solution to on-site health and safety.”
