At MJM, we are dedicated to providing excellent standards on every job. The numerous accreditations and certifications we hold are proof of our commitment to quality, staff development and health and safety. As a company, we continue to test ourselves against these standards, to ensure that we are delivering a service that 100% meets your expectations.
What accreditations do we hold?
This family of quality management standards is by far the world’s most established framework. It is also one of the world’s most widely-used management tools, with over 1.1 certificates awarded in 178 countries. The standard helps all kinds of organisations to succeed through improved customer satisfaction, staff motivation, and consistent overall improvement.
This is an internationally-accepted standard that attends to the Environmental Management Systems (EMS) within companies. The framework is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact. Our commitment has enabled us to achieve both of these objectives.
BS OHSAS 18001
This is the internationally-recognised standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It provides a framework to identify, control and reduce the risks associated with health and safety in your workplace. As we follow this framework, we are complying with a globally-recognised best practice of health and safety in the workplace.
CHAS: Contractors Health and Safety (Scheme)
In 1997, a group of health and safety and procurement professionals from across Great Britain worked with the Association of London Government (ALG) to develop CHAS. The scheme began with two main aims: to improve health and safety standards across Great Britain, and to reduce duplicated safety applications for both suppliers and buyers. Under the accreditation of CHAS, we have been assessed on our health and safety policy statement and our specific health and safety arrangements.
IPAF: The International Powered Access Federation
This standard promotes the safe and effective use of powered access equipment worldwide. IPAF provides technical advice and information through influencing and interpreting legislation and standards via safety initiatives and training programmes. It is a not-for-profit organisation owned by its members, who include manufacturers, rental companies, contractors and users. All of the staff at MJM are IPAF licence holders, meaning that we are licensed and trained to use powered high reach equipment safely.
To achieve this certificate, we demonstrated the appropriate level of competence in our health and safety management systems. As a result, our clients can be assured that we feature within an approved database of contractors and consultants under the criteria set by Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP).
CSCS – Construction Skills Certification Scheme
This scheme was set up in the mid-90s with the aim of improving site workers’ competence, reducing the occurrence of accidents, and driving up on-site efficiencies. The scheme keeps a database of those working in construction that achieve, or can demonstrate they have already attained, an agreed level of occupational competence. Successful applicants are issued with a card giving them a means of identification and proof of their achievements. These cards are increasingly in demand as evidence of occupational competence by contractors, public and private clients. Applicants must also pass a health, safety and environment test. All MJM construction site cleaners hold the CSCS card.
SMSTS: The CITB Construction Skills Site Safety Plus
The Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMTS) was devised to assist existing and potential site managers in developing knowledge, awareness and understanding of their legal, moral and social responsibilities in respect of health, safety and welfare on construction sites. The SMSTS course is one of the most highly-respected qualifications for persons who are responsible for the management of construction activities such as construction, building, maintenance or facilities management. Like many employers, at MJM, we insist that all of our site managers hold this certificate.
SSSTS – The CITB Site Supervisors’ Safety Training Scheme
This course is for those who have or are about to acquire supervisory responsibilities on a construction site. Certificate holders are qualified to:
- Understand the health, safety, welfare and environmental issues relevant to their work activities.
- Understand their legal health and safety responsibilities.
- Safely supervise activities on a construction site.
The MJM Group is a proud member of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. This charity has been running for 100 years, working to promote accident prevention across the UK and all over the world through safety education.
