Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
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.
Pennine director, Chris Wilkinson, says: “Gaining Safecontractor accreditation shows Pennine’s commitment to raising the standard of health and safety practices across the company and whilst working on customer sites.”
John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor says: "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 Pennine has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
