Andy Bould, Production Coordinator, GRP Shop
Andy has been working at Paneltex for over 10 years and is now the team leader of, and driving force behind, the SAS: Who Cares Wins scheme. He organizes inspections and meetings, manages the administration of the project, promotes the scheme and its results internally and, crucially, updates the league tables. He is an active person, who loves anything to do with the outdoors; hiking, camping, rock climbing, fishing, caving and bush craft.
He explains how he shaped the scheme and what he expects from it in the near future:
“Following IOSH training provided by the company at the start of 2017, I wanted to find a new way of getting colleagues more involved and to give them more understanding of the importance of Health & Safety at work. I also wanted everyone to take ownership of Health & Safety in their own work areas and realise that the rules are there for their own protection, something which I feel can be overlooked. The members we have assembled for the core SAS Team are a great bunch of people and I’m really happy with the scheme so far. We all really care about Paneltex and genuinely want to continue making changes for the better. Although the scheme is still in its infant stages, we have had some very positive feedback. I am enjoying my involvement so far and really believe that together with the team we have, we can achieve our aims.”
Andy has inspired the core SAS Team, and many more of us at Paneltex, to get behind him and support the scheme. In doing so, we are seeing a conscious effort to ensure the continued benefits of Health & Safety best practice at Paneltex, making sure that we have a positive, safe atmosphere and place of work.
