Safe Contractor and Constructionline
15/07/16Anna has been working very hard in the office to not only get us Safe Contractor approved for another year, but get us registered with Constructionline. Anyone who has done either will appreciate how hard work it is to keep up with all the paperwork ! Press Release Top Safety Accreditation for ACS Air Conditioning Local business ACS Air conditioning has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. Employing 5 people, ACS is principally involved in the Air conditioning sector. ACS is a family run business covering North Wales, Cheshire, Wirral and Shropshire. With a vary of customers from shops, offices, vets, doctors and dentist surgeries also factories and many more. Gareth Shipley Owner of ACS felt ‘it was very important to achieve this safety standard to show to customers that we value working safely’. Safecontractor 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 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 ACS has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. 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 210 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.
