Case Study

A delivery service company named Rogers Transport came to us looking to achieve a Health and Safety accreditation.

Rogers Transport are based nationwide and provides a quick and efficient service for collecting and delivering freights. Since their establishment in 1993, they’ve built up a first class reputation for being a reliable and speedy option, and pride themselves on their delivery times.

Rogers Transport contacted Wurkplace shortly before Christmas in December 2017. They told us that they had a deadline of 20 days to achieve a Health and Safety accreditation, which would allow them to tender for work on a large contract.

Despite it being over the very busy Christmas period, Wurkplace worked willingly to get the appropriate procedures in place, which was communicated to all members of staff. Due to our determination and hard work, we managed to achieve the accreditation within the 20-day period.

Rogers Transport shall be continuing to work with us going forward and have joined our retainer service for Health and Safety. We look forward to working with them for years to come.

“We are very pleased with the efforts from the Wurkplace team to meet the small deadline we gave them. Christmas is a very busy time for everyone and we were very impressed with how quickly Wurkplace were able to get us the accreditation we needed”.
