  • Health & Safety Awards 2017 06/02/2017 Open or Close

    EQUIPSERV UK has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.


    Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.


    The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.


    Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus 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 EQUIPSERV UK has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”


    Chris Duckett, Commercial Director of Equipserv UK said “We are delighted to receive this accreditation once again. It underpins our commitment to good working practice & will help the continued growth & development of the business”

    The UK's biggest celebration of recycling and waste management excellence

    National Recycling Awards 2016 recognizes and highlights the excellence and innovation present throughout the recycling and resource management sector today. These are the awards that companies aspire to win, judged by their peers from across the industry.

    The National Recycling Awards reward excellence across the industry and address recycling, reuse and waste reduction. To win, entrants must demonstrate effective strategy, tangible improvement, innovative and creative solutions, and a strong business case. It's as much about the bottom line as the environment.

    Team of the Year - National Recycling Awards 2016

    People are at the heart of delivering the products, processes and services needed to deliver high performance in waste and resource management. This recognizes any team within the waste and recycling sector in the UK or Republic of Ireland that has shown a collective commitment to go above and beyond what is expected in order to deliver top results.

    This award recognizes more than good practice: the winners will be beacons for best practice/excellence in their respective sectors.

    "As a business we are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious industry award & whilst we hope we win on the night - we are pleased to have been recognised by MRW as a finalist of Team of the Year 2016"
