  • Leadec achieves its Sword of Honour awards by demonstrating excellence in the management of health and safety risks at two Jaguar Land Rover plants, where it supplies industrial services.
  • Leadec achieves the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety management audit scheme at all four Jaguar Land Rover sites audited (see release for detail).
  • Leadec completes latest three-year audit cycle of all company management systems with zero non-conformities.
  • Leadec provides facility management services including cleaning and waste management to Jaguar Land Rover’s UK plants.

Its on-site operations at Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC) in Wolverhampton and vehicle assembly plant in Castle Bromwich, where Leadec provides facility management services including cleaning and waste management, were two of 84 worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour in 2019.

They are awarded to companies that demonstrate excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work. 

In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, Leadec first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council’s health and safety management audit scheme in the period August 2018 – July 2019.

It must also demonstrate to an independent panel of experts that it has achieved excellence in health and safety management throughout the business – from the shopfloor to the boardroom.

Leadec undertook five-star audits at its head office in Warwick and at four Jaguar Land Rover locations, having chosen to make no preparation before the first site audit to test its management systems against the industry benchmark.

They narrowly missed out on scoring five stars at that audit, and after making only minimal changes to their management systems, achieved five stars for the remaining three audits, with the first audit site awarded five stars shortly afterwards.
