With on-site safety becoming increasingly important to both client companies and contractors, Weatherite Service and Maintenance Limited announce that they have achieved full accreditation status under the SAFE CONTRACTOR health and safety scheme.
SAFE CONTRACTOR is a nationally recognised contractor accreditation scheme that ensures safe site working practices are adhered to by contractors and also helps client companies meet their legal obligations to ensure that contractors visiting the premises operate in a safe and professional way.
To achieve accreditation, Weatherite Service & Maintenance Ltd underwent a thorough review of their on-site operating procedures, including COSHH assessments, H&S training, emergency procedures, equipment testing and maintenance, personal protective equipment, manual handling and risk assessment.
By achieving SAFE CONTRACTOR accredited they assure that the company has been assessed by an independent specialist organisation to ensure they not only take health and safety issues seriously, but they are professionally competent in the way they operate and carry out contractual duties.
“We see this as a win/win arrangement” said Mike Tulley, General Manager, Weatherite Service and Maintenance, “with SAFE CONTRACTOR accreditation, we can save our clients a good deal of time and administration, as the accreditation provides them with all the health and safety assessment documentation needed to meet their legal obligations when letting a contract. From Weatherites perspective, we now have full safety accreditation, by an independent, nationally recognised body that proves the quality of our H&S standards and procedures. And in an industry where there’s continual pressure to raise standards and reduce risk, that can only be a good thing!”
