Tools Down Tea Break

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week, we have encouraged our employees to take part in various activities during the week to help break the stigma surrounding mental health. Today, we invited everyone to take part in a ‘Tools Down Tea Break’ to start a conversation with their colleagues about how they are feeling. Talking openly with others helps to dispel misconceptions about mental health problems and the people who experience them.

Mental Health Awareness Week

As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-16th May), and in conjunction with us becoming a supporter of the mental health charity ‘Mates in Mind’, we have invited our employees to take part in various activities to improve their mental health.

The theme of this year’s awareness week is #Nature. Following the pandemic and the various lockdowns, it has been apparent that going outside and getting some fresh air has a vast impact on the mental health and well-being of individuals. We therefore encouraged our employees to step outside over the weekend, whether that meant taking a walk in the park, sitting outside in the garden or visiting their favorite nature spot. We simply wanted everyone to #connectwithnature. We were delighted that many of the employees participated and sent in photos for us to share!

Mates in Mind

We are delighted to announce that Niblock are joining up with Mates in Mind in order to raise awareness, address the stigma of poor mental health and improve positive mental wellbeing among our workforce and the wider construction industry. Mates in Mind is being delivered in support of the Health in Construction Leadership Group and in partnership with The British Safety Council and Mental Health First Aid (MHFA).

As a Supporter of Mates in Mind, we gain access to support and communication materials, as well as a range of awareness and training programmes – helping us to take a joined-up approach to improving mental health & wellbeing. We are focused on better understanding the needs of our employees, whilst ensuring immediately that all our staff have access to trained and qualified counsellors. We recognise that the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have had a vast impact on everyone, and now more than ever we need access to the correct support channels.

We will also be taking part in national events, starting today with National Mental Health Awareness Week (10th-14th May)! 

Nonsuch High School for Girls

Niblock Electrical Services recently carried out mechanical and electrical works to suit the new layout requirements of the recently built ground floor open space of Nonsuch High School for Girls in Sutton. The new classrooms and sixth form study required new Niblock designed small power and lighting and new hot, cold and heating supplies. We are delighted with the outcome and hope the students enjoy their new learning facilities within the school

Excellent Resident Feedback

We were delighted to receive excellent feedback from the Customer Experience Team at Optivo regarding the services carried out by our engineers within Optivo housing. Positive feedback is always greatly welcomed and appreciated, but it is of the greatest significance during the Covid pandemic, knowing that residents feel safe and confident in our team and that works are still carried out to the highest of standards. 

“Understanding and respectful. Took his time and listened to the resident’s concerns and explained everything.”

“A real credit to your company.”

“Service was top notch, professional and all work was carried out to a very high standard.”
