Datasharp receive top safety accreditation
By Zoe Thomason | 04/11/13 | News
We are celebrating after successfully renewing our safecontractor accreditation.
The safecontractor award acknowledges our commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. Importantly, we have been recognised as safecontractor approved for a number years.
Clearly, as a large national independent provider of telephone systems, calls & lines, broadband, IT support, IT services; & photocopiers to 1000’s of happy business customers our application for the safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Our MD, Jane Cockcroft, commented; “Importantly, we provide our customers with award winning products and service. Renewing this accreditation highlights that we are also seriously committed to the safety of our employees and our customers.”
John Kinge, Head of Risk at safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Datasharp has done. Their 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.
