Online PR News – 17-October-2009 – – Fuel Storage Solutions Limited www.fuelstoragesolutions.co.uk is one of the latest groups of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record.
The Bradford based firm recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors.
Employing ten people, Fuel Storage Solutions Limited is principally involved in the installation of fuelling systems to supply backup generators and heating systems but also provides environmental support for fuel related activities.
The Company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
SAFE contractor accreditation is expected to enhance the Company’s ability to attract new contacts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the Company liability policy is up for renewal
SAFEcontractor is operated by international safety, health and environmental risk management specialists, the National Britannia Group. Darren Hughes, Operations Director for SAFEcontractor at National Britannia said “Major organisation s can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the was that Fuel Storage Solutions limited has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
Under the SAFEcontractor system, 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 www.safecontractor.com
Employer organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database which enables them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These employers agree that , as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 100 major nationwide 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.
