Safecontractor award for C&K

Campbell & Kennedy (C&K) has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for another year due to its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. The scheme enhances C&K’s ability to attract new contracts and their commitment to health and safety will be viewed positively by their insurers when renewing the company’s liability policy. Employing over 120 people, C&K is a nationwide, multi-sector vibrant company with four divisions in total, which include electrical contracting services, fire safety services, green energy installation services and digital TV solutions. C&K’s most recent clients have included major players such as Argyll & Bute Council, Merchant Homes and Balfour Beatty. Gerry Kennedy, Managing Director of Campbell & Kennedy said, “Health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. With Safecontractor accreditation we can re-assure clients that we operate in a safe and professional manner.” John Kinge, Technical Director of Safecontractor said, "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place." "More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Campbell & Kennedy has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.” Campbell & Kennedy is also accredited by The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and Safety Management Advisory Services (SMAS), which fall under the Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) umbrella along-side Safecontractor. SSIP was established to help with pre-qualification by demonstrating a contractor’s high standards of health and safety without the need for lengthy and costly assessments from the client.

4G network rollout continues

With mobile phone operators continuing to roll out 4G networks across the UK to provide super-fast wireless broadband. We are being reminded that there is a small chance this may cause disruption to Freeview services as the 800 MHz frequencies used by some 4G services are next to the frequencies used for Freeview.  Typical symptoms of disruption include loss of sound, pixelated images or loss of some or all Freeview channels. It’s highly unlikely that Cable and satellite TV services will be affected. at800 may send postcards to addresses out to South Ayrshire and South Hams explaining there is a small chance that viewers may experience some disruption to their Freeview reception when 800 MHz masts go live. If any RDI aerial engineers operating in these areas receive reports of problems with Freeview services, it may be due to 4G at 800 MHz.  If 4G at 800 MHz is not the cause of the TV disruption, at800 suggest viewers call Digital UK for help on 08456 50 50 50.  If any RDI members believes that 4G at 800 MHz may be the cause of Freeview disruption, at800 recommends that they ask their customers to report the problem either by calling the at800 contact centre on 0333 31 31 800* or 0808 13 13 800** or by visiting the website at www.at800.tv  If you are responsible for solving Freeview issues on behalf of a property owner, please call the at800 contact centre.

Essential Install Live! Is a success

The Registered Digital Institute were proud to support the Essential Install Live! last week as it celebrated its fifth birthday in style with packed aisles, product launches and show offers delighting exhibitors and visitors alike, report organisers. Essential Install Live! North opened its doors on October 15 and proved an immediate hit with a steady stream of high quality visitors making their way into EventCity to enjoy a wide array of presentations, demonstrations and install information. Mike Davies, RDI Director said; “Essential Install Live! was a huge success for us and we were impressed by the variety of exhibitors who attended the show and the steady flow of visitors on the day. Partnering with Essential Install presented us with the perfect opportunity for RDI members to interface with the latest technologies to keep them at the cutting edge of digital in home technology.” David Kitchener, MD of All Things Media, the company responsible for organising the show comments: “We are absolutely thrilled with the performance of Essential Install Live! North. The show operates in a challenging environment where the needs of getting on-site work completed means installers need a very good reason to attend and the support the show received really underlined the quality of the experience it delivers. “With the success of Essential Install Live! South moving to two days this year and adding a commercial floor for 2015, you could be forgiven for thinking the Northern show might struggle, but not a bit of it, the show has developed its own identity and value and we look forward to improving and maybe even expanding the event for next year. A huge thank you to everyone one who exhibited and visited, we sincerely hope you found the show useful.” CI social media was highly active during the event with many taking to twitter to express their support for the show. @PixelProjectsAV’s tweeted: ‘Looks like a great day at #EILiveNorth @EssentialInstal If its anything like the Southern event then it’s bound to be a success!’ @AstuteHomes’ posted: ‘1st experience Dolby Atmos today @EssentialInstal Northern show demonstrated by @anthemav sounded amazing – need to install in our showcase!’ Exhibitors were no less effervescent about the show. @PictureFrameTV commented: ‘We’d like to thank the team at @EssentialInstal for their incredible hospitality yesterday.
