GOLD SafeContractor PQQ Verification

GOLD SafeContractor PQQ Verification 150 150 Jan O'Mahoney​

Quadratek is delighted to SHOUT that we have been awarded GOLD SafePQQ verification from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace and demonstrating our continuing corporate social responsibility, and our commitment to being an ethical and sustainable company and minimising our environmental impact; extending our SafeContractor certification aligning with the requirements of PAS91.

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs like Quadratek as well as larger companies.

Our application for the SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across our company backing-up our ISO 45001:2018 accreditation, CHAS accreditation, RoSPA membership and RoSPA Silver award. The SafeContractor accreditation continues to enhance our ability to tender for new contracts and demonstrates our commitment to safety which is viewed positively by our customers and staff.

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor says: “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”.
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Quadratek has achieved. The company’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

Christmas Shoebox Gifts 2020

Christmas Shoebox Gifts 2020 150 150 Jan O'Mahoney​

Whilst we remain in unprecedented times trying to navigate our way through living with Covid-19, now more than ever those around the world who are less fortunate than us living in poverty need our support. This is why, once again, one of our team members and her daughters have been out shopping to fill shoeboxes for this year’s Rotary Shoebox appeal.

Their Rotary Club continues to support vulnerable families in Albania, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, and The Philippines ensuring children aged 1-15, many living in orphanages, receive a gift at this time of year.

Gifts can include:

  • Entertainment – Plastic or wooden toy, jigsaw puzzle, colouring book, colouring and drawing pencils, pens, writing book, Lego, yo-yo, skipping rope, building blocks, doll, dominoes, modelling clay/plasticine, cuddly toy, stickers, playing cards, sports memorabilia, musical instrument
  • Clothing – Hat, scarf, gloves, and warm fluffy socks
  • Toiletries – Toothbrush and toothpaste, flannel, bar of soap, roll-on deodorant, comb/brush, hair bobbles/bands, mirror, costume jewellery, make-up, razors (age-appropriate), face/body cream
  • Household – T light candles, kitchen cloths/scouring pads, soap flakes, first-aid kit

Gifts NOT to include;

Food (including sweets and chocolate), conflict-related toys e.g. toy gun/knife, battery-operated toy, matches, flammable liquids/aerosols, seeds, washing powder for automatic washing machines

Whilst you can’t wrap up the gift items individually, you can line the inner of the box with tissue paper & cover the gifts as well as decorating your shoebox.

If you don’t have a shoebox to hand you could ask a local shoe shop or pay £2 for a Rotary box

If you would like to send  a gift to a vulnerable child this year please follow this link http://www.rotary-ribi.org/districts/page.php?PgID=570353&DistrictNo=1110

 

Alternatively, why not contact your local hospital & enquire if they are doing shoebox gifts for patients who will be in over the Christmas period & may not have any family or friends who can visit.
