Jewson Tool Hire has been awarded a SafeHire certification, an industry-led initiative designed to raise standards and improve all areas of company operations, from quality management to customer service standards.
The Hire Association Europe (HAE) has congratulated Jewson Tool Hire for achieving the highly acclaimed industry standard by demonstrating high standards of safety within the hire industry.
The accreditation process involved a series of audits that included the inspection of equipment available for hire, compliance to Health and Safety Regulations and demonstration of Safe Working Practices.
Following each audit, a set of recommendations was given to participating Jewson branches. Once these had been implemented and submitted to the HAE for approval, the branch was deemed to have passed the audit. Once a sufficient number of branches had passed, the SafeHire certification was awarded.
Richard Pederson, Director of Tool Hire at Jewson, commented: “We invest a great deal in our employees, so no matter which of our 300 Tool Hire branches you visit, you’ll get expert advice as well as a SafeHire certification.
“This further demonstrates Jewson Tool Hire’s commitment to be the industry leader on all matters with regards to hiring out equipment safely, and will further assure our customers that when they hire from Jewson Tool Hire, they will be receiving equipment that is fully tested and safe.”
