GVS Hire Ltd is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme designed to help industry improve its safety record.
The Lingfield based firm recently received Accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK contractors.
Specialising in the commercial and municipal vehicle hire industries, GVS Hire Ltd’s most recent clients have included major players such as Connaught, ISS Facility Services and many London councils.
The company’s’ application for SAFEcontractor Accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
SAFEcontractor Accreditation is expected to enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
SAFEcontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are users of contract services.
Darran Huges, Operations Director for SAFEcontractor for SAFEcontractor said, “Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies.”
Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record of safe practice.
Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
