TJ Waste has been awarded SafeContractor accreditation for the third year running after successfully passing the audit carried out by the awarding body Alcumus SafeContractor.

The award is valid for a year and can be renewed annually providing the yearly audit is passed. The audit process is completed via an online portal. TJ’s Head of Compliance, Jack Macfarlane supplied various documentation such as insurance certificates, health and safety policy documents, LOLER certificates, electrical safety certificates and risk assessments etc to demonstrate their suitability for the status.

Jack provided evidence of accident statistics and relevant employee H&S qualifications such as WAMITABs & NCRQ certificates to prove the competence levels of employees. He 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: “Retaining TJ Waste’s SafeContractor status for another year is yet another example of our high standards of safety and compliance across the business. By retaining the accreditation we can continue to work with our blue chip customers and local authorities such as Southampton City Council and Portsmouth City Council.”

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 Waste General Manager, Luke Haskell said: “We’re thrilled to have secured this status for a third year! We prioritise health and safety best practice in all we do and this really does demonstrate our commitment to that.”
