Wrings transport is a privately owned, family run business based in Hallen. The company currently operates a fleet in excess of 50 vehicles, ranging from vans to 44 tonne artics.
Looking after their employees has always been important to Wrings Transport. As the business continued to expand, it became apparent to the directors that keeping on top of ever changing Health & Safety and Employment Law legislation was not an easy task.
To continue to do this job in house was becoming too time consuming and it was not an effective use of time for the management team.
In 2001 Citation were contacted by Wrings Transport and asked to review their current systems.
An in depth Health & Safety audit was carried out by their local, fully qualified Citation Health & Safety consultant who then produced a detailed inspection report, outlining the gaps in the current Health & Safety systems together with the corrective actions and recommendations.
A complete inspection of their existing Employment Law procedures was undertaken and all employees were provided with contracts of employment and staff handbooks.
Over 15 years on, Wrings Transport continue to be happy with the service and support provided by Citation.
John Cook, Transport Manager at Wrings said:
“When we partnered with Citation we had only very basic procedures in place with regards to Health & Safety and Employment Law.
As a business we have grown from employing just 11 staff when we first began working with Citation in 2001, to the present day where we now employ over 65 staff. This growth has been made significantly easier due to having Citation on board.
The Employment Law advice line is a particularly helpful aspect of the service, assisting us with any issue we might have within recruitment or disciplinary and grievance issues for example.
We’ve found the service as a whole, extremely valuable; I have even recommended business contacts and friends in the past who are also now happy clients of Citation.”
