ASHBROOK ACHIEVES SAFECONTRACTOR ACCREDITATION Post Thumbnail

Alcumus SafeContractor is a SSIP accreditation which proves that the company holding the status has carefully managed business processes in place.  In particular, those covering the management of health and safety, finance, and ethical practices.

Group Health and Safety Manager Andrew Taylor, and Group Groundworks Manager Andy Newton pooled resources and flew through the audit required to attain the accreditation.

The auditors look to collate and verify information to prove that the business falls within the criteria for the award. They look at all sorts including niche areas of business management, such as permits to work at height and transport of specialist equipment, even things like hazardous material handling.  All of which are relevant and tightly managed at ASHBROOK.

Andrew Taylor comments, ‘health and safety is taken seriously at ASHBROOK, so we already had the majority of the requirements in place as part of everyday life here.  The assessors look to find a core criterion approved by HSE.  The purpose of these criteria is to prove all-round business health and to mark us out as a supplier to be trusted.’

‘Whilst many of the areas of assessment are based on health and safety guidance, there is also an element of Social Value to ensure that ASHBROOK employs a diverse workforce, is a fair employer, and contributes back to our local communities.  All of which we do in bucket loads’, finishes Andrew.

Andy Newton goes on to add, ‘it was great that ASHBROOK had such a strong base to fly through the assessment and we already have customers who have specifically employed us because of holding this accreditation.’

James Ashbrook, MD, concludes, ‘we work across the board to ensure that our processes help support the excellent customer service our team provides, and the top-class machinery hire we offer.  Whilst we know that this is the case internally, it’s great to have an external source verify this for us’.
