Overhead Cranes manufacturer Granada Cranes and Handling awarded Safe contractor accreditation.
Granada Cranes and Handling have been awarded “Safecontractor” accreditation. Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by existing and future clients.
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, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
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 Granada Cranes and Handling has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector”
