Finally, A SEQOHS Accredited Occupational Health & Safety Service Provider
After three years, we were told today that we had received the SEQOHS accreditation. It has been difficult at times and intensive learning, but it was all worth it when we read this:
Kerry, Congratulations and well done, as a service you have come such a long way in the past 11 months, your hard work has been successful. Kind regards Aileen
SEQOHS or, Safe Effective Quality Occupational Health Service, is a set of standards and a process of voluntary accreditation that aims to help to raise the overall standard of care provided by occupational health services. It is a tough, if completely voluntary, accreditation to undertake.
Proof of our commitment
We believed that we should undergo the accreditation because it would be both a recognition and a proof of our commitment to providing outstanding occupational health services. Because we are committed, we want to offer the best possible health and safety services available in the Midlands and across the United Kingdom.
Proof of our competency
The accreditation is also a recognition and a proof of our competence in the provision of health and safety services to industry. To say we are chuffed, is probably an understatement.
What do the SEQOHS standards pertain to
The standards are grouped into 6 domains that relate to:
- Business probity (business integrity and financial propriety)
- Information governance (adequacy and confidentiality of records)
- People (competency and supervision of occupational health staff)
- Facilities and equipment (safe, accessible and appropriate)
- Relationships with purchasers (fair dealing and customer focus)
- Relationships with workers (fair treatment, respect and involvement)
- NHS Standard
Congratulations and well done to Kerry Budworth for all of her hard work and commitment to excellence during this process
