CHAS (Contractors Health and safety Assessment Scheme) , Altius and SafecontractorAlcumus have awarded EE accreditation for their continued high standards in the management of health and safety throughout the business.
Achieving these accreditations demonstrates EE’s dedication to compliance, effective safe working practices, risk management and ensuring an engaging safety culture with their people, clients and supply chain.
Kathryn Ing, Health and Safety Manager at EE said, “Here at Environmental Essentials we have further developed our already existing high quality standards for health and safety; from which both employees and clients can benefit.”
Gaining such accolades from these national safety organisations showcases EE’s commitment to their peoples’ health and safety whilst at work and that of their clients. It also allows potential and existing clients to know that working with EE is a safe option.
“I am very fortunate to work for such a forward thinking and proactive company and am happy to play a key role in the companies health and safety management system; it makes me very proud to see how successful we have been during my first 6 months here at EE”- Says Kathryn; who has herself been awarded three RoSPA ‘Guardian Angel’ awards ( Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents ) for her continued personal efforts in health and safety.
EE are members of RoSPA and following on from receiving triple accreditation, intend to take part in the annual RoSPA safety awards for 2016. The recently awarded accreditations from CHAS, SafecontractorAlcumus and Altius will be used as evidence during the award submissions to show the adjudication panel just how focused EE are on health and safety and the place it holds in our business – right at the very heart.
Mark Harvey, Quality & Technical Director of EE said “I have seen an increase in safety performance during recent months and have received feedback from employees saying that they feel engaged with H&S from day one with us and like how they can be involved in the health and safety development for the company. So much so that EE have plans to introduce our own health and safety values that everyone can follow and benefit from. Having initiatives like this in place and being able to demonstrate how we successfully manage health and safety is key when applying for accreditations; so we plan to introduce our values and continue with our success into 2017”.
The new values will support the health and safety function within EE and the results of having them in place will contribute to next years application for further successful accreditation status.
