Auto Windscreens is the first national automotive glazing supplier to receive accreditation from SAFEcontractor, an SSIP scheme (Safe Systems in Procurement) that recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK businesses.
Under the SAFEcontractor accreditation system, Auto Windscreens went through a vetting process, which examined health and safety procedures and its track record for safe practice.
"Health and safety has always been high on the corporate agenda of Auto Windscreens, and our Management Team encourages an interest in health and safety amongst all colleagues" said Vanessa Jones, Health and Safety Manager.
"We ask our colleagues to take time to report problems with standards, work instructions, procedures or any other aspects of health and safety that they have concerns about."
Windscreen repair and replacement involves not only heavy pieces of glass but sensitive bonding substances which need to be regulated by health and safety procedures.
"SAFEcontractor accreditation has shown that this approach pays off".
A comprehensive schedule of companies that are accredited by the scheme, and have therefore achieved the prescribed high standards, are accessible in an online database on the website www.safecontractor.com
