The Epsom based firm recently received their second year of accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors.
WasteSavvy, specialise in the removal of waste from domestic and commercial sectors. Our most recent clients have included major players such as British Heart Foundation, Barnardos, The King Clinic, & Ryman’s.
The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
John Kinge, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said, "Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies". "More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that WasteSavvy has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector". Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website, www.safecontractor.com
