Property maintenance company wins top national safety award

Fortis Property Care has won the Electrical Safety Collaboration award at The Association of Gas Safety Managers Gas Safety Awards in partnership with Lukey Cassette Boilers and Socket & See.

The award celebrates the development of a two year project which highlighted a product design fault, in collaboration with Lukey Cassette Boilers and Socket & See. Fortis Property Care spearheaded the development of an enhanced design and ultimately increased the safety of gas engineers whilst working on a certain type of gas appliance.

Bill Tebay, Managing Director, said: “The collaboration between us, Lukey Cassette Boilers and Socket & See has directly led to the development of a gas appliance which now allows gas engineers to safely isolate it. Impressed with our methodology towards electrical safety, the manufacturer built prototype test equipment which is now being considered for procurement within Fortis Property Care. We are justifiably proud that this has been recognised and rewarded by the industry’s leading association.”
