Safety is our primary concern when procuring goods and services, as it is in all aspects of operation.
When working with suppliers it is essential that they understand and follow all Biffa health and safety procedures that are in place for the business as a whole and on specific sites. They must comply with all appropriate health and safety legislation and demonstrate this in their day-to-day operations.
Our Commitment to Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Management (SHEQ)
Biffa is committed to working with suppliers who will operate with integrity, and with environmental issues in mind. We aim for all Biffa management teams, across the country, to be trained in identifying and assessing potential risks quickly. When it comes to Biffa health and safety regulations, our management teams implement strict control measures to minimise risk to staff, to customers, and to suppliers that we work with.
For more information on our operational health and safety measures read our Safety, Health, Environment and Quality Management policy.
Biffa works with an external accreditation scheme, Safe Contractor , to deliver consistent measurement of all suppliers’ health and safety procedures. Our suppliers are expected to have this or a similar accreditation in place before commencing work.
