Its travelling service division regularly visits customers to provide maintenance assistance and advice.
The decision to apply for Safecontractor Accreditation was driven by the need to prove excellence via a nationally recognised standard. Safecontractor Accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new service contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed as a positive step by its insurers.
Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to those businesses involved in food or feed manufacture.
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 Christy Turner has done. Their 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.
