We have been audited and approved by the National Britannia 'SafeContractor' Scheme. 'SafeContractor' is an accreditation scheme that assesses the health & safety competency of contractors and service providers.

Under the CDM Regulations, clients have a legal obligation to ensure that external contractors and service providers working on their premises operate in a safe way. Therefore it is necessary to assess contractors health & safety arrangements and increasingly this is being carried out through 'Safecontractor'.
