We recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a scheme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors. The scheme is designed to help industry improve its safety record.
SAFEcontractor accreditation is a major part of our commitment to safety. We hope it will enhance our ability to attract new customers. To be accepted under the scheme we underwent a vetting process which examined health and safety procedures and our track record for safe practice.
The scheme insists upon strict standards and expects those standards to be applied on every job, however small. It is important that our staff work in the safest possible conditions.
John King, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said, “Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies. More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way McKnight amp; Son has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector”.
