NSD Loyalty Reward Scheme
It is with great pleasure to announce the new NSD Reward Scheme. With over 25% of our staff continuously employed by NSD for over 10 years. We felt it was only fair to reward the loyalty and commitment shown by these staff members.
The 10 year award will mean a bonus payment, 2 days additional holiday per year and a certificate of acknowledgement for this fantastic achievement. There will also be a similar reward after 20 years service.
Managing Director – Jack Fulton had this to say about the award “NSD are only as good as the staff we have and regardless of how many contracts are won, we rely on our staff experience and skills to take a new contract through all the various stages to Final Account. With free movement of labour we expect to have some department losses, however, we seem to have a core of dedicated staff that are accruing many years of service. For this, you have my sincere thanks and I hope you will see fit to continue with your employment at NSD for many years to come.”
Congratulations to all those involved!
The Directors at Northern Steel Decking are pleased to announce that our Commercial Manager, Lee Walmsley, has been invited to join the Board of Directors. Lee has been our Commercial Manager for 8 years and his dedication and hard work has been rightfully acknowledged.
We appreciate all that Lee has done for NSD and look forward to his continued support as Commercial Director.
Net Rescue Course
Earlier this month some of our Site Operatives took part in the Net Rescue Course ran by 3 Education Ltd which was organised specifically for Northern Steel Decking.
The day was successful with Jack Heron, Liam Robson, Michael Powel, Robert Foster and Stephen Day all completing the course.
The group was the first of many to take part in the course as Northern Steel Decking are currently making sure that all site operatives and management are able to conduct and control a rescue from a net in the event of a fall. In addition to this, all NSD operatives will carry a net rescue park to help aid a successful rescue.
Well done those who took part and thank you to 3 Education Ltd for the workshop they ran.
Jason Baxter Wins Monthly Award
Northern Steel Decking would like to congratulate Jason Baxter on his recent Employee of the Month award, given by McLaren Construction on the Chancery Lane job in London.
We are currently on site working with Severfield (NI) Limited on the 13,000m2 job in central London.
Following a recent audit on the site Northern Steel Decking, and Jason Baxter in particular, received high praise for their enthusiasm on site and general knowledge of the task in hand.
The following statement was sent to Northern Steel Decking:
On Chancery Lane Tuesday 24th Nov McLaren Construction had a BSI Audit and I have had positive feedback from them regarding the Northern Steel Decking Stud Welders onsite. The Auditors chose the stud welding operations onsite as a package in which they wished to include in their site Audit. Having gone through the Northern Steel Decking Method Statement and Risk Assessments the auditors proceeded onto site to watch the stud welders in operation. They were very happy with the way that the guys were following their Method Statement and Risk Assessments. They asked Jason Baxter (Stud welder) quite a few questions related to their works and also related to site in general. They were very happy with Jason’s responses and impressed that he knew in detail on what he was actually doing. On that note the Auditor who is neutral to site put Jason’s name forward as site employee for the month of November. McLaren Construction agreed with the Auditor and felt that also Jason does show a great enthusiasm onsite. Jason will receive a gift voucher when he returns to site as a reward for his attitude and hard work.
Congratulations Jason and keep up the good work!

In recognition of the fantastic achievement at CMF of manufacturing One Million Metres Square of Decking during the calendar year of 2014 and NSD’s significant contribution towards gaining that phenomenal accolade, the office staff and site staff came together to celebrate with a go karting team bonding day out.
