More about SafeContractor

SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts. Its commitment to safety is acknowledgeable by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

SafeContractor is applicable to most sectors although it’s 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 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 CCPI Europe has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully other companies within the sector will follow.

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 that firstly, examines health and safety procedures and secondly, their track record for safe practice. A database includes the companies meeting the high standard, 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 210 major, nationwide 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.
