All You Need to Know About SafeContractor

In our line of work, safety is of utmost importance, and we take it very seriously. In fact, we have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the work place. So, what is SafeContractor and what does this accreditation mean for Fueltek?

The History of SafeContractor

The company started life as a bespoke project for a property management client, however soon began to grow as other clients showed interest in the services, identifying the potential for a new standardised system.

By 2003, the service had been developed and rebranded as SafeContractor. Today, the company provide services which help clients to manage contractor health and safety obligations, holding contractors to extremely high standards.

The Accreditation

In order to achieve accreditation, a company must submit details and supporting evidence of practices to a SafeContractor auditor. The auditor can then award the company with the accreditation or work with them in order to ensure they meet the standards.

The standards are extremely high and cover core elements such as health and safety policies, risk assessment and first aid. Due to the nature of our work as providers of fuel management systems, there are also additional specific requirements associated with our industry.

The Expertise

SafeContractor has a high level of specialist knowledge which comes from the 10 years’ experience delivering accreditation services. When a company signs up to be audited by SafeContractor, this is carried out by the Audit Services Team which is made up of health and safety professionals who hold technical qualifications and industry memberships.

The Clients

SafeContractor has an impressive client list from industries including construction, manufacturing, retail and transport. These clients range from SME’s to FTSE 100 companies with household names such as Unilever, Debenhams, Virgin Trains and Vodafone.

Now, Fueltek can be added to the list as we join the number of clients who hold accreditation from SafeContractor.
