UK-leading SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification awarded to Shred Station

SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification integral to winning tenders for UK’s largest independent confidential waste destruction and disposal company.

Shred Station are trusted by thousands of businesses across the UK to provide a bespoke and confidential data destruction service. Shred Station have been committed to protecting the reputations and identities of companies and individuals since they were established in 2008.

“Health and Safety is an integral part of most of the tenders we win, including multiple national frameworks. All organisations in all sectors need to know that all personnel will always be safe whilst our services are being performed. The double award of SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification has enabled us to demonstrate our commitment to best practice in health and safety and beyond to our new and existing clients.” commented Chris Pearson, Bid Manager at Shred Station.

“Having the back-up knowledge and expertise of NEBOSH qualified staff during the SafeContractor audit and verification processes gives us confidence in our procedures and compliance. Whilst our SafeContractor accreditation assures our clients that our method statements and risk assessments are up-to-date and available on request, that we keep full training records for our staff, and that we have first aid provision and accident reporting procedures in place.”

“Our SafePQQ verification provides our clients with peace of mind that we have appropriate procedures in place in relation to a variety of areas, and are a professional supplier committed to compliance. Completing the 22-point verification of our compliance information including topics such as Finance, GDPR and Right to Work with SafePQQ has saved us time in tender processes, negating our need to submit multiple PQQs to potential clients.” continued Chris Pearson.

Achieving UK-leading accreditation from SafeContractor and SafePQQ verification enhances a contractor’s reputation, saves them time and money when bidding on new tenders, and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices, company standards and procedures are compliant with the law. Contractors are connected to leading organisations via our online portal, where they are displayed alongside their accreditation and verification awards to hundreds of companies that only work with SafeContractor members.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: “SafeContractor has 20 years of experience helping contractors to evidence that they have sound health and safety policies in place. We have the UK’s largest team of in-house auditors to work with contractors through the accreditation process and to play a vital role in supporting clients to meet their compliance needs."

"Extending our vetting of supply chains to include our SafePQQ verification in May 2019 was a natural step for us to help our contractors save time, money and to win more work by reducing the burden of providing compliance information to various clients at different times.”

"We’re thrilled that Shred Station has achieved both SafeContractor accreditation and SafePQQ verification, demonstrating their commitment to best practice in health & safety and beyond. We wish them every success with their future growth and are proud to have them join our community of over 33,000 contractors.”
