Safecontractor

Safecontractor LogoSafecontractor is a health and safety assessment scheme that is recognised all over the UK. The scheme has been designed to take the hassles out of health and safety by managing a list of approved contractors.

With legislation placing an ever-increasing burden on organisations to ensure the health and safety competency of their suppliers, it is vital to have a reliable system in place.

The Safecontractor scheme is designed to review and audit health and safety policies, procedures and documentation. Qualified auditors take into consideration our profession, industry sector and business size. A tailored safety audit is used to demonstrate we have suitable and sufficient health and safety compliance procedures and practices within our business.

The Safecontractor Charter Standards set down the benchmark against which all contractors are assessed.

Due to the vast variation in contractor size, nature and work activities, the standards are deliberately non-prescriptive, allowing their auditors to use their best judgment and experience as to the specific level of evidence required to demonstrate compliance.

What is covered?

The standards cover core elements including health and safety policies, risk assessment and first aid. Also included are specific requirements relating to the activity for which accreditation is being sought.

How is it covered?

The overall performance and operation of the Audit Team is governed by the Santia Accreditation Assessment Guidance Note (SAAGN) which outlines the overall aims of the audit process and other non-technical issues including file handling call handling and customer service.
