Here's the first edition of our Social Value newsletter.

BSC CovidCasey is pleased to announce it has passed a 2-day review of its policies, procedures and arrangements relating to COVID-19.

The review, carried out by the British Safety Council, was further verified through inspections of workplaces through video and photographic evidence, along with both formal and informal interviews held with a wide range of personnel during the two days.

Paul Turner, Director, commented, "We saw the British Safety Council's Assurance Review and Statement as a way of providing a third-party verification of our approach to managing our workplaces to our employees, supply chain, clients and customers. We are proud of the way our employees and supply chain have responded to working and keeping our workplaces safe." 

2020 Presidents AwardWe are very pleased to announce we have received an internationally-recognised award for demonstrating high health and safety standards.

Casey has received a RoSPA President's (12 consecutive Golds) Health and Safety Award for working hard to ensure its staff and subcontractors get home safely to their families at the end of every working day.

" To achieve the Gold level for 12 years in succession is a testament to the focus we place on the health and safety of our workforce. This award is the result of a great and sustained effort by the whole Casey team, managers and workforce alike, and is something we can all take pride in."

Paul Turner, Casey Director for Safety, Health and Environment

Organisations receiving a RoSPA Award are recognised as being world-leaders in health and safety practice. Every year, nearly 2,000 entrants vie to achieve the highest possible accolade in what is the UK’s longest-running H&S industry awards.

Fitzwarren visual2Casey has been awarded a major improvement scheme at an iconic Salford tower block that was once earmarked for demolition.

Fitzwarren Court in Pendleton was scheduled to be demolished as part of a wider £120million regeneration of the area, but the plans were halted in 2016 when social housing provider Salix Homes secured funding to modernise the block. 

Salix Homes is investing £7.5 million to completely transform the 23-storey high-rise building along with 10 terraced homes on the neighbouring Rosehill Close.

As part of the ambitious investment programme, the aging 1970s block, which contains 135 one-and two bedroom apartments, will be fitted with new kitchens, bathrooms, an energy efficient heating system, new windows and doors and the upgrading of communal areas.

Casey will also be installing a sprinkler system and a state-of-the-art fire alarm system as part of Salix’s Safety Enhancement Programme across all of its tower blocks in Salford.
