A ‘very positive’ first year of

registration for Wernick Hire

The Wernick Group helped to

make Scheme history in July 2014

when it became the Scheme’s

first registered supplier - pledging

its commitment to the Code of

Considerate Practice and improving

the image of construction.

Eleven months after signing up to

the Scheme, Wernick’s Lawrence

Higgins, Regional Director South,

has spoken of the value Supplier

Registration has brought to his

ever-expanding organisation.

Outlining the tangible benefits of

registration, Lawrence said: “It has

been a very positive experience,

both in understanding the CCS

criteria of ‘what good looks like’,

to what ambitions considerate

constructors should have, and what

improvements we could make to

our operation.

“There have been some really

positive improvements – eco-

awareness, cleanliness, the

importance of encouraging a

healthy workplace; smoking has

become a negative subject.”

He added: “Continued exposure

to the Considerate Constructors

Scheme (CCS) community has a

positive effect on our own client

base, with advising on their site set

ups to meet or exceed CCS criteria

on what looks good.”

Image is an important factor

to Wernick Hire as it prides

itself on supplying seating and

accommodation for high profile

events such as the Grand National,

the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee,

Glastonbury and, more recently, the

General Election.

A huge 26 constituencies across

the UK hiredWernick products such

as portable polling stations, and

even toilets and generators, for the

one-day elections at the beginning

of May.
