Dicom Limited has once again been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. Safecontractor is a third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors from a wide variety of industries and services.


John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place. More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Dicom has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.” Dicom don’t stop there though when it comes to ensuring that the right things are done within the umbrella of health and safety.

With the exception of employees who have joined the company in the last few weeks, various initiatives have been carried through and qualifications achieved. Each and every service engineer holds the CSCS card for fundamental skills in relation to safety. All factory staff and service engineers have undertaken and passed the nationally recognised IOSH Working Safely, with members of our leadership team holding the IOSH Managing Safely qualification. We are also in the process of training everyone, via a third party, on Manual Handling techniques and principles with a comprehensive manual handling risk assessment having been undertaken and published.

It’s all about giving our staff the awareness of hazards and risk and most importantly providing them with the skills and equipment to ensure that all tasks are completed safely, whether those tasks be in the Factory and Office environment or on a customer site.



Over the last 38 years, Kadant PAAL Limited has become the UK`s leading manufacturer and supplier of static and portable waste compactors. The waste compactors are designed and developed for durability, high performance and ease of operation. This is important to organisations wishing to reduce the frequency and cost of waste collections or where space and hygiene are important factors. This is achieved by significantly reducing the ratio of waste from its original volume. Dependent upon the type of material, a Dicom waste compactor can reduce the waste volume by a ratio of 4:1. This ensures that maximum payloads are achieved with each container. Kadant PAAL's portable waste compactors can be supplied with several standard options, such as: liquid retentive seals to prevent food waste leakage, bin lifting equipment for lug and comb type waste containers, choice of standard hopper – open splayed, enclosed, dock loading. The static compactors are also available with a range of hopper options and tipping mechanisms and are available in a range of sizes to suit all volumes. Our equipment can be seen working in almost any industry including manufacturing, retail, leisure, hospitals, restaurants, food production, HM Forces, transport, schools & colleges, warehousing and is often used by waste and recycling contractors to process materials such as cardboard, plastics, food and general waste. Our products meet a range of wide and varied requirements, including the latest health and safety standards, and we offer a range of payment options from outright purchase, rental or lease; so regardless of your waste handling needs, Kadant PAAL have the solution.
