(PRWEB) April 9, 2011
Critical Power Supplies recognised for its high standard health and safety practices and Critical Power products is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help British Industry improve its safety record.
The Oxfordshire based firm recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice among UK contractors.
Critical Power Supplies is principally involved in all aspects of Critical Power and Energy Solutions for IT, Telecom, Defence, Government and Industrial Applications including Marine and Health.
The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SAFEcontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts. Additionally, the company’s 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. The system is applicable to most sectors, although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors; all of which are big users of contract services.
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, via a website http://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 the site. These employers agree that as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have recorded accreditation.
