ceda are delighted to announce that the uptake of the new cedaSAFE Health and Safety Accreditation Scheme, launched last month, has been hugely impressive. Sixteen Members and Partners have already applied and successfully passed their assessments in June and have been issued with their accreditation certificates. These include businesses of all sizes as the scheme is designed to offer a cost effective solution for all companies.
Those companies receiving their accreditation since launch are;
● KCM Catering Equipment Ltd
● Tailor Made Catering Equipment Services Ltd
● Archer Catering Systems Ltd
● Apeiron Catering Ltd
● YCE Catering Equipment Ltd
● AGGORA - Bunzl UK Ltd
● CHR Food Service Equipment
● Catering Design Group Ltd
● Crystaltech Services (UK) Ltd
● Whitco Catering and Bakery Equipment Ltd
● Marren Microwave Ltd
● Hobart UK - ITW Ltd T/A Hobart UK
● Barcare Supreme Ltd
● Rational UK Ltd
● Gastronorth Ltd
● C&C Catering Equipment Ltd
Derek Maher, ceda Chairman and Managing Director of Crystaltech Services, one of the founder applicants, commented that “The formation of an industry safety accreditation in the form of cedaSAFE will raise the profile and credibility of the Catering Equipment profession and greatly reduce the volume of repetitive and unnecessary paperwork required to assess subcontractors. Manufacturers that subcontract their service repairs will have their contractors audited by a competent service provider and ceda members who offer their service to a number of industry members will greatly benefit from having just one accreditation.
If an applicant already has an SSiP accreditation then they only have to complete a few simple questions in order to achieve the certificate at a very competitive £120 per annum. The accreditation has really started to gain momentum from both ceda members and Manufacturers that have signed up”.
