Eland Cables achieves Covid-19 Assurance Assessment from British Safety

The British Safety Council recently audited and confirmed that Eland Cables, the UK cable supplier with their principal operations centre and testing laboratory in Denaby, has achieved all the requirements of its new Covid-19 Assurance Assessment. It makes them one of the first companies in the UK to be assessed against this important and topical health & safety evaluation.

As a company, Eland Cables has always had a clear focus on the health & wellbeing of its colleagues and communities, especially throughout this pandemic. Having already made the transition this year from BSI ISO 18001 to BSI ISO 45001, and for several years achieving 5-star status in the British Safety Council’s Occupational Health & Safety Audit the groundwork was there but they wanted to go further.   

Jean-Sebastien Pelland, Director at Eland Cables said, “We felt that securing independent recognition that we are meeting and exceeding Government regulations and best practice recommendations was important to provide reassurance on our activities both internally and to the wider community.”

He continued, “The British Safety Council have audited the measures we have put in place, including assessing our operational processes for enacting effective social distancing. The audit included an evaluation of our approach to protecting all stakeholders through the use of personal protective equipment and enhanced cleaning protocols amongst other virus transmission risk mitigation measures. Due consideration was also given to our workforce engagement and to our commitment to employee wellbeing in these challenging times.”

By being one of the first companies in the UK to achieve the BSC Covid-19 Assurance Assessment Eland Cables continues to reinforce their position of putting quality and compliance, in all aspects of what they do, at the very forefront of their business.
