We're pleased to announce that Lili Waste has been awarded the accreditation from Safecontractor for our ongoing commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. Our application for the Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business and to protect our employees and those of our customers when working on site.
The safecontractor scheme is used by many large organisations as a way of identifying a suitable and competent contractor. With more than 350 major clients and over 30,000 contractor members, safecontractor is one of the fastest growing health and safety assessment schemes in the UK.
Our Operations Manager, John Hopkins , had this to say about achieving the accreditation:
“This accreditation marks an important milestone for us. It enables us to demonstrate to our customers that when we say we’re committed to quality, we mean it. The accreditation re-enforces our commitment to protecting the well-being of our employees and our customers’ employees.”
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme, which recognises high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. Large organisations cannot take the risk of employing a contractor that is unable to demonstrate a high standard of working. The accreditation will serve to reassure any new customers that we understand the importance and value of adopting good risk management strategy.
To qualify for the Safecontractor scheme, we underwent a vetting process to examine our health and safety procedures and our track record for safe practice. We were able to pass this vetting process, meeting the high standard required to be included on a database of accredited contractors accessible to registered users only via the website - www.safecontractor.com
Organisations that sign up to the scheme can access the database to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received the safecontractor accreditation.
We are pleased that as a result of being awarded this accreditation, we not only reassure existing customers, but will also have increased opportunities to work with new customers that find us on the database.
