Building a Safer Future Awards Champion status to Langley UK

Building a Safer Future has announced the award of Champion status to Langley UK Ltd. The roofing, waterproofing and regeneration firm becomes the first organisation to be awarded Building a Safer Future Champion status so far in 2024, and joins the existing tranche of Champions in taking a leadership role in committing to a journey of continuous improvement in relation to building safety.

Langley was awarded Champion status after successfully completing both stages of the assessment process (Leadership and Culture and Corroborating Elements), receiving detailed insight into their existing leadership and culture around building safety and equipping them with actionable data and practical tools to help review and upgrade their processes.

Organisations engaging with the BSF Champion assessment are seen as leaders in the industry, and Langley’s achievement sets an excellent example to other organisations working in the built environment.

Steve Elliott, Non-Executive Chair of Building a Safer Future, commented:

“Many congratulations to Langley, who have been awarded BSF Champion status today. Successfully completing the assessment is an achievement to be proud of, and it’s fantastic to see Langley’s hard work and passionate commitment recognised with this new position among their peers. We encourage other organisations working in the industry to follow their lead.”

Nicola Jeffries, Quality and Compliance Manager at Langley, commented: 

“Langley is thrilled to achieve the esteemed status of Building Safer Future Champion. As champions, we embrace the opportunity to lead rather than follow, solidifying our commitment to a ‘Safety First Approach’ that prioritises both individual and structural safety. With Langley’s strong leadership and culture, we are poised to spearhead sustainable change throughout the industry, fostering a culture of safety and resilience within our supply chain. We extend our sincere gratitude to Darren Oliver, our BSF assessor, and Gary Townsend Vila for their unwavering support on our Building Safer Future journey. Looking ahead, Langley eagerly anticipates our involvement in the Building Safer Future initiative, committed to making continual strides toward improvement in the years to come.”

Building a Safer Future (BSF) is a non-profit organisation committed to raising standards in building safety and supporting required culture change in the built environment industry.
