Health and safety is our number one concern
When we make installations in the construction industry – both in offices and warehouse settings – we have to be aware of changes in legislation that affect several different workspaces.
We are fully mindful of the need to keep up with such legislation, because we know the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will come down hard on transgressions.
The HSE is Great Britain’s independent regulator for work-related health, safety and illness. We are acutely aware that safety is paramount, both when it comes to designing space and how it will be used by the client but particularly during the construction or installation stage.
At Spacelink, we receive regular communications from HSE about changes in the law and they cover a wide range of aspects, from the training and certification you need to handle certain tools to matters affecting equality and diversity.
For example, many people will be familiar with the term “Health and Safety at Work Act”, referring to the Act of 1974, but there are many more acts which cover a lot more subjects.
At Spacelink, as suppliers and installers of mezzanine floors, office partitions and many other items of office fit-outs, we have to keep up with all kinds of new legislation, whether it affects us directly or whether we need to be aware of legislation from the client’s point of view.
For details about our services for your office fit outs and refurbishment, take a look around our new-look website, then contact us with all enquiries on 0800 281720 or leave a message on our contact us page.

Having an office with a wide-open space with all departments together can sometimes cause a lot of noise with different projects happening simultaneously. Having partitioning systems installed in an office doesn’t mean just having separate spaces in the office for different departments, partitioning can also create a professional meeting room. There are many different designs of office partitioning which our experienced team can both design and install, frameless glass partitioning, demountable partitions which has sound attenuation,
Having only one meeting room can often cause difficulties and frustrations when two meetings are scheduled in at the same time and this is where operable walls can really come in handy and prove to be extremely efficient. When in use, they create a structural wall splitting up a room and when they are no longer required they can be folded or stacked against the wall to give back the original open space.
Many offices don’t get refurbished for many years after they’re first completed, so 2017 may be the year that your office deserves a well-earned refurb, even if it is just a lick of paint! There’s nothing better than kick-starting the new year with a brand new looking office ready to get back into the swing of things after the festivities. Companies often have a business plan for the year ahead and if you’re planning on growing yours,
Having an area in the workplace to go during breaks and lunch hour has many benefits for both employees and employers. It is important to have some time during the working day to switch off from work and reboot, ‘A study of office workers and managers by Staples discovered that even though 66 percent of employees spend more than eight hours a day at work, more than a quarter of them don’t take a break other than lunch.
For many office workers, sitting at a desk all day typing away on a keyboard and looking into a computer screen seems to take up the majority of their working hours! For this reason, among others, it is extremely important to provide a working environment that keeps employees feeling happy and uplifted – helping to improve productivity and boost company morale.
