Panoramic staff pass their ROLO health and safety training
Over the past month, ten members of Panoramic staff have undertaken thorough health and safety training at our offices in Hastings. The training forms part of the ROLO (Registry of Land-based Operatives) Health, Safety & Environmental Awareness course that is administered by BALI. There was no doubt, but we are happy to announce that all ten passed with flying colours.
We strongly believe that investing in our staff is one of the top priorities as a company. The running and future of the business relies heavily on our staff and for that reason, we want to ensure that they feel safe and happy in the workplace. Providing them with the skills, knowledge, and support to grow and flourish in a progressive environment. Training plays a tremendous part in this by developing their skills and learning new ones.
The ROLO Health, Safety & Environmental Awareness course is the only accredited route to the LISS/CSCS (Land-based Industry Skills Scheme & Construction Skills Certification Scheme). ROLO was introduced to raise the standards of health and safety and reduce the risks and accidents throughout the industry for anyone who works in the land-based sector. It also encourages employers to keep a record of workers in the land-based industry who have achieved a recognised level of competence.
Panoramic confirm compliance with both ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 following an annual audit.
On Monday the 10th of October we had our annual surveillance audit with NQA to assess our continuing compliance to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015. The audit covered the main activities within the Management System, our company processes, and procedures plus to check any areas of non-conformance against the standards. The audit was very successful with no non-conformances raised!
Our IMS (Integrated Management System) has been developed and expanded upon to lead the business toward continual performance improvement. This also ensures we remain compliant with current and future regulations, which is particularly the case with ISO 14001:2015 surrounding environmental aspects.
Our objective over the next eight months is to continue to improve and maintain our accreditations ready for our renewal with NQA in June 2023.

Supporting our team’s mental wellbeing both in and out of the workplace
Today, October 10th is ‘World Mental Health’ day. A day for education, awareness, and advocacy against the social stigma towards the invisible condition that so many struggle with.
The success of Panoramic Landscapes is dependent on the efforts of our talented team. Therefore, we like to ensure we support our staff year-round and in every way we can.
We provide an ‘Employee Assistance Programme’ to all our team members, which provides them with free telephone advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a wide range of personal and professional problems that cover more than just those relating to mental health.
Other services include dealing with bereavement, financial wellbeing, relationship and martial advice, legal information, counselling, and even medical information. There is also an app that provides additional support.
We are focused on supporting the wellbeing of all our employees. To learn more about us as a company, please browse the rest of our website.
Our Sustainable Provider of Plants & Trees
Our supplier of many of the shrubs, trees, hedging etc, which we use on many of our projects have won the ‘Sustainable Business of the year’ award at the 2022 Central South Business Awards. This is thanks to their G-Cycle scheme, recycling the packing crates, pallets, and pots after delivery.
Whilst we pay an upfront cost for the packaging this is reimbursed at 100% of the value when they are returned or collected. The G-Cycle scheme ensures that there is zero waste and no cost impact for their customers.
The durable, wooden crates and pallets used are suitable for multiple re-use after being collected. In addition, any pots and unwanted plants can be returned also, in the case of the pots, these are reused so reducing plastic waste. Meanwhile, any healthy plants are donated to the Greenwood Community Scheme for use on appropriate projects.
The CSBA (Central South Business Awards) Awards was held at the Hilton Ageas Bowl in Southampton on 28th September. It is organised by Business South, which aims to make the Southern Region a great place to work, invest, study, live and enjoy.
Congratulations to Greenwood Plants on a well-deserved award and we are very pleased to play our part in supporting their G-Cycle scheme.
