R.I.P. The Conservatory: Westbury Conservatories changes name to Westbury Garden Rooms

(PRWEB UK) 23 November 2011

Westbury Conservatories, the Essex-based designer and manufacturer of bespoke garden rooms,orangeries and pool houses has announced a change of company name, to Westbury Garden Rooms effective from 1 November 2011.

The change is a reflection of its understanding of an evolving market place (particularly within bespoke extensions), and marks a significant departure from the company?s beginnings over twenty years ago. Today, Westbury is renowned for its beautiful garden rooms and orangeries, which make up the majority of the company’s business.

Jonathan Hey, managing director, Westbury Garden Rooms said: ?It?s quite ironic really because when we started out, over twenty years ago, we were primarily a conservatory company. However, the majority of our business has moved away from the conventional fully glazed conservatory to more bespoke garden rooms, which are much better suited to the UK climate and make much more of a visual impact on a property. Consumers have become increasingly savvy in their searches for a functional living space that adds value to their property and our name change is a way of formally recognising their requirements.?

Factory and machinery investment

The company, which remains privately owned, has also undergone a major investment programme. This includes investing in the latest joinery profiling machinery, making it one of only three companies in the UK to use this system, and the purchase of a new factory and office complex. These investments are focused towards improving efficiency, increasing capacity, whilst minimising energy usage and reducing the company?s carbon footprint.

This also included relaunching the company website (http://www.westburygardenrooms.com) to showcase Westbury?s designs, with hundreds of beautiful images helping to inspire its clients and illustrate the diversity of its product range. The company has also launched a second site (http://www.westburyjoinery.com), dedicated solely to doors, windows and roof lanterns – primarily aimed at the discerning developer and homeowner.

Hey continued: ?Despite adverse economic conditions, we?ve gone from strength to strength by staying focused on our customers? needs. This latest investment allows us to extend our customer commitment by ensuring that we can cater for the most exacting requirements whilst improving our quality and efficiency, factors that we pride ourselves on. We?ve worked hard to build a strong reputation and are excited about our prospects in the future.?

Reroof America Contractors Announces Revised Company-Wide Safety And Fall Protection Plan As A Result Of Recent Changes To OSHA Safety Requirements

Edmond, OK (PRWEB) September 16, 2011

In preparation for the new OSHA (Operational Safety and Health Administration) Fall Protection Rule for residential construction which began, September 16, 2011. Reroof America Contractors has announced implementation of a revised process and new procedures to maximize employee and sub contractor job site safety.

The OSHA new rule no longer allows roofing contractors, like Reroof America, the use of slide guards as an acceptable alternative to ?conventional? fall-arrest systems (guardrails, safety nets or personal fall-arrest systems) on roofs with slopes of 4:12 or greater and a fall potential of 6 feet or more, unless the employer can demonstrate conventional systems are either not feasible or create a greater hazard. That conclusion must be documented and include a written, site-specific fall protection plan.

The catalyst behind the changes in the OSHA rule is tied specifically to OSHA statistics on fatalities from falls. Roofing and residential construction has been one of the highest job site fatality rate jobs. In fact, falls accounted for more deaths than any of the other residential construction hazards. According to OSHA statistics, falls accounted for 34% of the construction fatalities in 2008 and 2009 ? and 35% of the fatalities since 2005. ?Reroof America believes its plans will help reverse these disturbing trends? said Mark Lenzer, Vice President of Reroof America.

?Reroof America?s revised plan has three critical phases; education, job site implementation, and follow through?, said Mr. Lenzer. ?While being OSHA compliant is important to us, of greater concern for Reroof America is the safety of our employees, sub contractors and our customers?.

The plan will focus on using OSHA and NRCA (National Roofing Contractor?s Association) tools for training on fall protection, ladder safety and proper use of power tools. In addition to this training, all employees and sub contractors will receive a copy of the Reroof America Contractors Fall Protection Plan which outlines the steps we are asking our job site workers to take to assure a safe job site. Finally, our Spanish speaking sub contractors will all be equipped with encompassing safety guides written in Spanish to assure that safety requirements cross language barriers.
