Safe Contractor Accreditation

Press Release

 

Top Safety Accreditation for Wrightmans Construction Limited

 

Local business Wrightmans Construction Limited has been awarded accreditation from safe contractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

 

Safe contractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

 

Employing/subcontracting 30 people, Wrightmans is principally involved in the Commercial sector, specialising in the schools and commercial industries. Wrightmans most recent clients have included major players such as Newlands Shopping Centre in Kettering Northants.

 

The company’s application for safe contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

 

Safe contractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

 

Safe contractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

 

John Kinge, technical director of safe contractor 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 Wrightmans Construction Limited has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

 

safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

 

Under the safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

 

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

 

Over one hundred and seventy major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
