Kingspan Access Floors has been awarded re-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.
Tony Morgan, Kingspan Access Floors Health & Safety Adviser, said: “The award of this accreditation is testament to our continual efforts to achieve and maintain the high levels of health and safety throughout our business as demanded by our industry.”
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 Kingspan Access Floors has done. The firm’s 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,” he added.
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, nationwide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors.
