What is SafeContractor Accreditation?
SafeContractor is a highly respected SSIP Accredited Health and Safety Contractor Competence Assessment Scheme.
With this accreditation, you can rest assured that clients will be fully satisfied that you have met all the health and safety standards and regulations to carry out your job.
SafeContractor is well established within the construction industry, as well as throughout many other industry sectors, as providing a benchmark health and safety standard against which Contractors Health and Safety Arrangements and Provisions are reviewed.
SafeContractor is also considered as being an SSIP equivalent to CHAS, SMAS, Exor, Acclaim and ConstructionLine.
What are the benefits of SafeContractor Accreditation?
If you're not sure whether SafeContractor accreditation is beneficial for you and your business, then here are just some reasons why you should consider completing a SafeContractor application.
Once you are SafeContractor accredited, you will be listed on the SafeContractor client portal making your business more visible within the industry.
Not to mention, SafeContractor accredited businesses have proven that their health and safety practices, polices and procedures meet the required standard which reduces the need to complete and submit multiple health and safety questionnaires to clients.
But, above all, having a SafeContractor Accreditation Status means that you have been thoroughly audited which removes the risk from your client making you an attractive contractor.
With the SafeContractor logo attached to your business, the HSE will clearly be able to see that you have good health and safety practices which have been rigorously assessed and this will help with the reputation of your business.
It seems like a no-brainer!
SafeContractor accreditation can really boost the visibility, reputation and clientele of your business.
