Safe Contractor Accreditation

We’re pleased to announce that we have been accredited by Safe Contractor for the 9th year running.

Safe Contractor is a scheme run by the Government. To be awarded the relevant contract, the companies and individuals applying must meet specific standards of health and safety.

The Safe Contractor Scheme has been developed to avoid each individual contractor having to assess individual suppliers health and safety competence. As all Safe Contractor buyers accept proof of competence, when becoming Safe Contractor approved then duplication is reduced.

Safe Contractor has been developed and refined by Government Health and Safety and Procurement Professionals, with the support of the Health and Safety Executive, since 1999. The Safe Contractor scheme was initially developed by as SupplyLine, and later developed into Safe Contractor, and is now available for use by any public and private sector organisation when short listing Contractors, Suppliers and Consultants who apply to work for them as an aid. The scheme provides information and assurances about the health and safety systems and competence of the organisations who have been Safe Contractor accredited or assessed.

Applicants’ health and safety policy statement, their organisation and how it deals with health and safety and their specific health and safety arrangements will be assessed. Everyone will,
therefore, work to an acceptable standard. The Safe Contractor scheme has a database on which all of its members are stored. It is accessible by members only.
