As a large and growing nationwide business, we are committed to keeping businesses working but also to meeting our corporate and social responsibilities.
We are very aware that we play a significant role in the well being of the people that work with us, our local communities and the environment and we make every effort to invest in and ensure only a positive contribution in these areas.
Our Environment: We commit staff and resources to meeting or exceeding environmental legislation and particularly to reducing polluting releases and unnecessary consumption of natural resources. We are also ISO14001 certified.
Our Community: We like to help a good cause and offer discounted hire rates to all registered charities and community projects, providing over £250,000 of free hire in the last 2 years. Through our Heroes of Hire employee volunteering programme, we are involved in various community projects around the country.
Our Safety: We’re serious about safety – of our colleagues, our customers and our products. We are Safe-HIRE, ISO9001 and OHSAS18001 certified and are the only tool and equipment hire company to have been awarded four stars from the British Safety Council.
Our Workplace: Our employees are our most important internal resource and we work hard to make sure they are happy at work and well equipped with the skills they need to do their job. Training, communication and recognition are key features within our positive and inclusive workplace.
Trading Fairly: We ensure that we always trade fairly, and as such our Board of Directors have signed a ‘Commitment of Principles’ to ensure that we conduct our business with integrity, fairness and transparency, in line with the Bribery Act.
