BOBST achieves top safety accreditation for second year running

Bobst UK & Ireland, supplier of machinery to the corrugated board, folding carton and flexible materials market, has been awarded an Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation for the second year running

The third-party accreditation scheme, which rewards health and safety excellence in the workplace, is recognised by thousands of organisations in the UK as a benchmark amongst contractors.

Bobst’s ability to retain the accreditation reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining excellent health and safety standards in all workplace environments and protecting the welfare of its colleagues, customers and suppliers.

Alan Letford, Head of Customer Care at Bobst UK & Ireland Ltd., said: “HSE compliance continues to be a primary focus for our business. Securing this accreditation for the second year in a row reinforces our reputation of adhering to safe practices in all our working activities.”

In passing the Alcumus SafeContractor assessment, the Bobst UK & Ireland Ltd. workforce demonstrated its continued application of good risk management. For example, the use of a timesheet management app allows service technicians and product specialists to log mandatory safety checks and highlight on-site concerns.

Mr Letford continues: “We’re extremely proud to cement our position as a health and safety leader in the industry with this accreditation but we don’t rest on our laurels where HSE matters are concerned. We’ve implemented a range of initiatives to support continuous improvement in this area.”

In addition to its Alcumus SafeContractor status, Bobst UK & Ireland Ltd. is a member of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Institute of Customer Service, ensuring the standard of its working practices are consistently in line with the high expectations of its employees and customers.
