Esoteric – the counter-espionage and electronic sweeping company – has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in Health and Safety.
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in Health and Safety management among UK contractors.
Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines Health and Safety procedures and their track record for safe practice.
Commitment to customers and staff
Providing specialist counter-espionage security services to organisations across the UK and on the international stage, Esoteric’s accreditation demonstrates the company’s commitment to maintaining the Health and Safety of its clients and staff as well as being a differentiator in winning new business.
Esoteric’s operations and compliance manager Hannah Byford-Smith said: “Our interest in the Safecontractor accreditation was driven by our desire to maintain a high standard of Health and Safety across all aspects of our business. This is just one of a number of measures that Esoteric is undertaking in order to provide a premium quality service to all of our clients.”
John Kinge, technical director at Safecontractor, added: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound Health and Safety policies in place.”
Kinge added: “More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Esoteric has done. The company’s high standard has set an example which, hopefully, will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
