The SafeContractor scheme is a SSIP-approved health and safety assessment scheme for contractors who want to demonstrate that they’re taking responsibility for their legal health and safety requirements. Calber have this week received an accreditation certificate and collection of van stickers which can be displayed as proof of the SafeContractor seal of approval.
The accreditation demonstrates to customers that Calber fully understand the importance of health and safety, and are meeting all of the legal requirements set. The award is a tribute to the hard work going on behind the scenes, to ensure that Calber are a professional and credible contractor.
Andy Grieve, Calber Compliance Manager, comments on the importance of the SafeContractor scheme – “Having this accreditation really helps demonstrate our safety commitments to both current and prospective customers. The whole Calber team work hard to ensure that our high standards are maintained”.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. The SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus 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 Calber 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.”
