Omar Group is delighted to announce the promotion of Colin Roberts to the newly created position of Group Health & Safety Manager.
This new role comes at a time of ongoing expansion for the Group, which includes the addition of a new 54,000 sq ft, 5 acre premises near Ringwood, Dorset, and the move of decking company, UK Sundecks, to a new, larger site in Lye, West Midlands.
In his new position, Colin will have roving health and safety responsibility for the Group’s new premium, single holiday home facility in Dorset and the new UK Sundecks site in the West Midlands. This is in addition to Omar Park Homes’ sites in Brandon, Suffolk and in Hull. A new recruit will be joining Colin shortly to help oversee Group health and safety.
Graeme Craig, Group Chief Executive commented: “Colin has made an outstanding contribution to the business over the last five and a half years. In particular, he has played a central role in putting together our Covid Secure health and safety protocols, helping the business through a very difficult time, largely unscathed. I have every confidence in Colin’s ability to provide first-class health and safety across the Group and wish him the very best in his new role.”
Colin Roberts, Group Health & Safety Manager stated: “The Group has grown significantly in recent years and I’m proud to have played my part alongside the Omar team. Health and safety is paramount to operations and success of the business as a whole and I look forward to ensuring best-in-class processes in this new and exciting period of growth and expansion.”
