Carney Consultancy hosted a free seminar following the HSE’s Health and Refurbishment campaign. The session was to explain the issues that notices were issued following the inspections carried out in October. It also detailed the control measures that must be in place to prevent enforcement action and Fee for Intervention (FFI).
The session was a success with attendance from many different backgrounds within the construction industry.
We have now had our second ISO 9001 / ISO 14001 / OHSAS 18001 surveillance audit. Thankfully, we can report back that we have passed with no observations or non-conformances.
A big well done to our consultant and trainer Martin Crammond who manages our systems, and to the rest of our staff working to comply with these systems.
We have now had first Pro-Qual audit for NVQs. This was passed with flying colours.
A big well done to our consultant and trainer Simon Hogg who prepared for the audit and provided the required evidence for the audit.

For the second time, Carney Consultancy Limited have given a donation to the volunteer crew of Cullercoats RNLI. Back in February of 2015, Director Angela Carney and family visited the crew and presented them with a donation of £350 (see news story here).
This year, Carney Consultancy Ltd made another donation to the crew in support of their harbour day. Firstly, a donation of £30 was made to sponsor one of the holes on the crazy golf course which was set out on harbour day and created by the crew. Secondly, ontop of the £30, we donated another £220 to help support the charity in their mission to save lives at sea.
Today has been a positive day for Carney Consultancy Ltd as we were not only highly commended in the bast places to work awards, but also came 16th in the top 50 companies to work for.
Unfortunately however, this news has come on the final day for one of our Health & Safety Assistants Kerry. Kerry has left the team to spend the next 6 months travelling around the world. Although she will be a great miss here, we wish her the best of luck and hope she enjoys this amazing experience.
This year we again attended the Constructing Excellence North East (CENE) awards night dinner. We were fortunate enough to have been shortlisted for one of the awards however we were not destined to be winners 2 years in a row.
However, we would like to say a massive congratulations to all of the winners and a massive thank you to CENE for putting on such an amazing evening! We are already looking forward to next year.
Martin Crammond, one of our consultants and trainers, has recently attended an ISO45001 conversion course. This enables him to assist those who currently have OHSAS18801 to transition to the new ISO45001 standard.
