Another 14001 & 45001 Re-certification! 🥇

Lintott is proud to announce the successful re-certification of the Company’s Business Quality Management System to both ISO 45001 & ISO 14001. Moreover, 2021 marks a clean sweep for the 3rd year running, with no minor or major non-conformances raised against either standard! Lintott first achieved certification to the original Health & Safety Standard in 2004 & this successful re-certification demonstrates to all stakeholders that the Company continually meets the requirements of internationally recognised best practice therein.

BS ISO 45001:2018 – Occupational Health & Safety, sets out the minimum requirements for occupational health & safety management best practice & is designed to minimise incidents regarding workplace health & safety.

BS EN ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental Management, sets out the criteria for an environmental management system. It maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow so that environmental impacts can be minimised.

For Lintott’s valued clients, the accreditation serves as peace of mind.  For Lintott, the framework & benchmark are fundamental facets of the Company’s integrated continuous improvement programme.

Supporting the Community 🧠🤍

Empowering the Company’s Corporate Social Responsibility, it continually & actively seeks to contribute & to develop relationships within the community, extending its learning opportunities. Aligning with nmcn, the Company’s colleagues voted to support Mind as their corporate charity partner for 2021 and during a recent spring clean campaign aptly called “Bag It, Bin It”, the Company received an incredible response from colleagues, donating clothes & other re-useable items which have now been donated to our local Mind shop.  This gesture supports & bolsters the good work Mind continue to do within the community. 

Mind Shop Assistant Manager, Justine Johnston, “thanked Lintott colleagues for their generous donations and welcomed further donations”. For 70 years, Mind have been committed to making sure that everyone experiencing a mental health problem can access the support they need & is treated with the respect they deserve. Mind have helped millions of people through public campaigns, influencing decision makers & the services Mind delivers in communities across England & Wales.

National Bring your Dog to Work Day 🐕

It’s National Take Your Dog to Work day, at Lintott Control Systems we firmly believe it enhances the wellbeing of our colleagues.  Lintott formalised a scheme namely apted “Bring your Dog to Work” to enable workers to do just that !! Recognized for the first time in 1999, National Take Your Dog to Work Day celebrates the immense love for dogs, and also encourages adoptions. 

Having your dog at work with you all day may make it a little tough to get all of your tasks done, but there are always plenty of dog sitters! But having the dog with you may allow you to interact with your co-workers in a whole new way, as the dog is a great icebreaker.

We welcomed Jess in today, who even joined in with our “Lintott Laps” at lunchtime 😊🐕

Celebrating Reserves Day 2021

Lintott is very proud to continually support the Reserves, and as today is Reserves Day, we wanted to share with you and celebrate one of our own out in the field.

Production Mentor, Ben Sutton, is currently oversees protecting a British base with fellow British soldiers.  Reservists giving up their spare time to serve in the reserve forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career. The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel and as such are vital to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas.

The contribution they make to our Armed Forces often goes unrecognised, as such an annual reserves day was created to highlight and recognise the valuable contribution Reservists make to our Armed Forces.
