TJ Waste gains SafeContractor status


TJ Waste has been awarded SafeContractor accreditation after successfully passing an audit that was carried out by the awarding body Alcumus SafeContractor

The status is valid for a year, after which point TJ can opt to re-new. The accreditation audit process was all done via an online portal. TJ’s Health and Safety Compliance Supervisor, Jack MacFarlane was required to supply various documentation such as  insurance certificates, Health & Safety policy documents, LOLER certificates, electrical safety certificates and risk assessments etc.

Jack provided evidence of accident statistics and relevant employee H&S qualifications such as WAMITAB’s & NCRQ certificates to prove the competence levels of employees. Jack also outlined TJ’s processes and procedures for H&S management, seeking competent H&S advice, employee training and visitor inductions across all TJ sites.

Jack said: “Achieving this accreditation further enhances TJ’s reputation to our existing clients and provides peace of mind to potential new customers by demonstrating our health and safety competence.”

Alcumus SafeContractor aims to build a better working world for everyone, one that’s safer, healthier and stronger. SafeContractor delivers a tailored health and safety accreditation that allows contractors to showcase their capabilities to potential customers.

Holding SafeContractor status reassures customers that TJ Waste has the relevant health and safety paperwork in place to meet industry standards. Being accredited also opens up more business opportunities to TJ as some companies will only deal with those that hold the accreditation.

TJ applied for the accreditation on suggestion of one of their clients. Havant Borough Council works with Norse South East, a contract supplier of grounds maintenance, trade waste and street cleansing services to the private and public sectors. Norse carry out numerous waste and landscaping services for Havant Borough Council and use TJ’s facilities for the disposal of the waste.

TJ Waste & Recycling General Manager, Luke Haskell said: “This accreditation shows our commitment to health and safety best practice. Now anyone thinking of using our waste services can rest assured that we operate completely in line with all the necessary procedures.”
