Top Safety Accreditation for Geotechnical Engineering

by Kevin Puckett 21/01/2016 filed under General News

 

Geotechnical Engineering has again been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

 

Safecontractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses health and safety arrangements. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the Safecontractor certificate as confirmation of a commitment to very high standards in health and safety management.

 

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 Geotechnical Engineering 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 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 are signed 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.
