Sheffield-based roofing specialist, Martin-Brooks, is receiving top marks from schools across the region, following its investment in Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks for all staff.
Martin-Brooks is carrying out the safety inspection on all management and site operatives to reassure clients that its team is suitable to work around children and vulnerable adults.
The firm has an excellent relationship with the local education sector and carries out a range of work, from minor repairs to full refurbishment schemes directly for schools or as part of the Building Schools for the Future scheme, through main contractors such as Vinci Construction.
Martin-Brooks director, Nick Brooks, said: “Anyone who works with children or vulnerable people is required by law to undergo a CRB check, but institutions responsible for the care of these groups are increasingly requesting those based temporarily at their sites are subject to the same tests.
“Martin-Brooks has taken the decision to carry out CRB checks on our entire team, despite the expense, to demonstrate our suitability to work on sensitive projects. Having these measures in place will also ensure there are no administrative delays when jobs with tight timescales are commissioned. We pride ourselves on taking a proactive approach to changing industry and client requirements and we want to underline our commitment to achieving the highest professional standards.”
