ab-agri-transparent.pngWe spoke with Jeff Marston, Group Safety and Environment Manager, to find out how partnering with SafeContractor has benefited their company.
Jeff Marston, Group Safety and Environment Manager at AB Agri, explained that the company faced several challenges: “We tried to implement an in-house questionnaire for our contractors, but this was too generic and was not always relevant or detailed enough for the jobs at hand. As we run such a lean operation, we were often lacking the depth of expertise and the time to execute this appropriately. Consequently in 2012, a fire caused by a contract electrician occurred, resulting in a significant amount of damage and cost to our business.”
SafeContractor offers an easy-to-use online portal which lists all your existing contractors, as well as new ones you may need, in one easy-to-access location. Jeff continued: “I visited the SafeContractor HQ, and with just one look at the back-office support team, I knew that we would be in good hands. By pre-qualifying the contractors, and offering further support where needed, I now have peace of mind and can focus on other areas of my job. The easy-to-use SafeContractor portal has reduced the admin burden for our team and we can now manage contractors with minimal effort. We are realising direct cost savings from this functionality which, as a lean team, translates to a genuine competitive advantage for our business. By having a greater transparency of who is in our supply chain across multiple sites, we can ensure that we are compliant with the ever-increasing regulation of our industry.”

“SafeContractor has enabled us to have visibility and control of our contractors health and safety compliance, helping us to operate more efficiently. Partnering with SafeContractor provides us with peace of mind that we are doing all that we can to manage risk across our sites.”

“Implementing SafeContractor has enabled Weetabix to manage risk consistently. Weetabix has taken a zero-tolerance approach to health and safety; we can’t allow a two-tier system, it would not send the right message across our business, or any other business coming in.”
