Here at EMR Silverthorn we take Quality Control and Quality Assurance extremely seriously, the suppliers, the products that we distribute on their behalf and the repair services that we provide are continually reviewed, assessed and improved. We have implemented quality management systems and processes that help us to maintain high standards of repair and to ensure the quality of the products that we distribute are reliable and long lasting.
Our excellence in health and safety = your peace of mind
Strict health and safety procedures are crucial in our industry and it’s an area we’ve always taken very seriously. We’re not interested in ticking boxes – we’re committed to achieving health and safety excellence that really does protect our employees and our customers.
Our commitment has just been rewarded with accreditation from safecontractor – the leading third-party accreditation scheme.
The scheme recognises very high standards in health and safety management among UK contractors so it’s great news for us, and peace of mind for you. Although safecontractor is applicable to most sectors, it’s particularly relevant to food manufacture, as well as the retail and leisure sectors - all areas in which we have clients.
John Kinge, technical director of safecontractor said, "Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove they have sound health and safety policies in place. "More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way EMR Silverthorn has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
To get the accreditation, we had to go through a strict vetting process, which examined our health and safety procedures together with our track record for safe practice. Because we met the high standard required we are now included on a database, which is accessible online to registered users.
Client organisations that sign up to the scheme can access the database to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on their site. Clients who sign up to the scheme agree to engage only those contractors who have received accreditation.
Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the safecontractor certificate as confirmation of competency.
