The Considerate Constructor Scheme (CCS) has awarded Connect Plus Services (CPS) excellent and exceptional scoring against each of the categories – appearance, community, environment, safety and workforce.
The Scheme looks at the measures an organisation has put in place to be more considerate towards local neighbourhoods and the public, the workforce, and the environment.
Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the Scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements.
Following an independent audit at the end of November, the CCS monitor said that “much of the Considerate Constructor Scheme Code is part of the company’s ethos and its working practices”.
A number of initiatives were highlighted in the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s report, which included CPS’s Mental Health First Aid training and the installation of a defibrillator in each depot.
CPS’s corporate social responsibility initiative, Adopt a School, was also recognised following this year’s activities involving our staff and the supply chain. The Culture Club and its goal to promote diversity and inclusion was also praised.
The business’ delivery of the Code of Conduct has seen CPS receive several accolades for “performance beyond compliance” since we first registered in 2009.
