Tracking the Create Fleet

without comments

The reality of running a business today means trying to make efficiencies in every area of our operations. To improve sustainability and uphold our Duty of Care to employees we have been using Tracker systems in our fleet vehicles for several years. We’ve recently received lots of coverage as a case study to show how Create’s use of telematic systems has improved the efficiency of our signage installation business.

As one of the UK’s major construction companies, Cowlin Construction are dedicated to ensuring their workforce and subcontractors are fully Health and Safety compliant. As Create’s installation team manager, Andrew Fogg was offered a place on Cowlin’s CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) run by the company at their Bristol offices.

The 5 day course course aims to help site managers and supervisors manage health and safety on site in accordance with current legal provisions and develop an understanding of responsibilities and accountability for site health, safety and welfare, and recognise a safe site is efficient, economical and productive.

We are pleased Cowlin considered Create to be a valued subcontractor and appreciate their dedication in ensuring their supply chain follows good Health and Safety practice.
