DB Systems are honoured to announce our recently secured accreditation as a Safe Contractor. DB Systems Logistics and Compliance Director, Mark Danvers, discussed the importance of achieving this certification: “We take health and safety very seriously, it’s not just another box we tick, but an integral part of everything we do. From day one, DB Systems have always strived to be not only the most technologically innovative and competitive AV supplier in the events industry, but also the most responsible. The process for achieving the Safe Contractor certification is a rigorous one, where our daily processes were audited and documents scrutinised and we passed; so by satisfying their criteria, we know we are working to a high standard.”
The Safe Contractor scheme is run and assessed by the Alcumus Group, who provide technology-led, compliance risk management certification and accreditation—supporting UK and international clients comply with the latest legislation, and create the safest possible working environments.
Mark explained why becoming a Safe Contractor is really important for DB Systems: “The benefits of this accreditation can be viewed from two different positions. Firstly, the message to our staff, and anybody wishing to work with DB Systems—your welfare is our top priority. We believe that everyone has the right to feel safe at work. Secondly, but of equal importance, it reassures our clients that we give on-site safety the utmost level of importance, that we absolutely do everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our staff and those around us.”
In addition to becoming a Safe Contractor, DB Systems hold ISO20121, ISO14001, and ISO9001 management system standards, and have a ‘zero to landfill’ policy at our headquarters in Tewkesbury.
