Top Safety Accreditation for Envantage Ltd

Manchester-based Envantage Ltd has been awarded continued accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Operating throughout the UK, Envantage helps organisations to manage their energy and carbon reduction more effectively through a comprehensive portfolio of services. The company’s clients include major players such as JD Williams, McBride and Arnold Clark as well as many well-known local companies and industries across the country.

The company’s on-going Safecontractor accreditation is driven by dedication to a uniform standard across the business.

“We are known for our high quality work, in areas such as Climate Change Agreements, energy compensation schemes for industry, energy audits, and M&T” noted Colin Hindmarsh, Managing Director at Envantage.

“Our Safecontractor accreditation shows that this quality also extends to our approach to health and safety”.

Safecontractor enhances the company’s ability to support high profile clients as well as win new contracts. Its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

The scheme is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors or consultants 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 Envantage has done. The firm’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.”

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme.

With less than 14 months to comply, action is recommended now in order to meet theESOS legislation and benefit from potential energy saving opportunities. For more information on how we can help please contact Envantage to discuss your requirements with a  member of the team.

ESOS FAQ

There has been some confusion over assessing qualification status and how to determine employee numbers. Please read below or click here for more information about ESOS and clarification on employees.

ESOS: Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme

The ESOS is a mandatory energy assessments and energy savings identification scheme for large undertakings in the UK. Compliance under this scheme must be fulfilled by 5th December 2015, however action is recommend ASAP to allow ample time to carry out all elements required.

Do we qualify?

You will be mandated to comply with the ESOS regulations if, on the qualification date of 31st December 2014 you are:

1. A UK undertaking which has 250 or more employees in the UK or abroad

2. A UK undertaking which has fewer than 250 employees, but has: o An annual turnover exceeding €50m AND, o A balance sheet exceeding €43m

3. Part of a corporate group which includes an UK undertaking which meets criteria 1 or 2 above.

What must we do?

Compliance with ESOS can be met via an ESOS compliant evidence pack and lead assessor approval, or an ISO 50001 certified Energy Management System.

ESOS evidence pack route:

1. Measure total energy consumption across: a. Buildings, b. Transport- Freight and business travel in company and employees vehicles c. Industrial activities.

2. Conduct energy audits to identify cost-effective energy efficiency recommendations.

3. Report compliance to the Environment Agency by 5th December 2015

Before notification to the Environment Agency, the ESOS assessment must be conducted or approved by a lead assessor and reviewed by a board level director.

ISO 50001 certification

A certified Energy management system results in ESOS compliance providing the certificate is valid on 5th December 2015, and covers 90% of total energy. Implementation of a certified Energy Management System allows significant energy savings to be realised and demonstrates a commitment to continual improvement.

What if we do not comply?

Failure to correctly comply with the scheme can lead to fines of up to £50,000 and / or an additional fine of £500 per day, until compliance is entailed, for a maximum of 80 days. Non complying companies will also be named and shamed.

ESOS: Clarification on employees

Criteria one of qualification under the ESOS regulations relates to the number of employees of an undertaking.

The information below provides clarification to on how to correctly assess your employee numbers in accordance with theESOS rules:

What is an employee?

A person is ‘employed’ by an undertaking if they are: ·  An employee ·  An owner manager ·  A partner

What about part time staff vs full time equivalent?

An ‘employee’ is a person employed under contracts of service. Their contracted hours and status (full time/part time) are irrelevant to their classification as an employee.

Geographical location of employees

The definition of ‘employees’ includes any employees of a UK company regardless of their geographical location. As a result this includes all contracted staff, owner managers and partners employed directly by the undertaking in the UK or abroad. Companies do not have to include employees of subsidiaries or other group undertakings based overseas.

Calculating the average number of employees

The number of employees means the average number of persons employed by the undertaking in the year. To work out your average number of employees, you need to:

· Find the number of persons employed under contracts of service by the company for each month of the financial year (whether for the whole month or part of it) · Add together the monthly totals · Divide by the number of months in the financial year

If you would like help to assess your qualification, or how to meet ESOS compliance, please contact Envantage to discuss your requirements with a member of our team.
