WasteSavvy is one of the latest groups of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record.
The Epsom based firm recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors.
Specialising in the Junk & Rubbish removal in the waste industry, the company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Proprietor Paul Rosan, fully understands that health & safety is an imperative factor to businesses when selecting a contractor. We recognise our responsibility to ensure the safety of our staff, our clients, and the general public and are continually committed to health & safety through operational policy and risk management.
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".
