JWCI Ltd is again proud to be one of the latest group of companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record. JWCI Ltd have achieved the SAFEcontractor status for the last few years and are pleased to say have been successful again this year.
The Staffordshire based firm received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK contractors.
Employing 12 people JWCI Ltd is principally involved in the dairy, food and chemical industries with a proven track record for high quality and professional service. Recent clients have included Quenby Hall Dairy, one of only six ‘Stilton’ cheese makers.
“We felt it was important to become SAFEcontractor accredited in order to highlight to potential customers our dedication to best practice and quality of service” Kerry Callear, JWCI Ltd
The company’s application to receive SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance the companys ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
SAFEcontractor accreditation is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contract services.
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 JWCI Ltd has done. The firms continued high standards 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 standards are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website, www.safecontractor.com.
