London (PRWEB UK) 20 June 2014
Heightsafe Systems now has an impressive array of certificates and accreditations for its work in the Health and Safety industry, after being recognised by some of the most renowned safety related bodies in the country including the British Safety Council and CHAS. The company have now added accreditations from Contractor Plus and Safecontractor to their portfolio, along with a specialist certification from LEEA Lifting for its expert field of working at height – one of the biggest dangers faced by workers in the construction industry.
The accreditations are an important recognition by the industry for the high standard of work the company has maintained across the field, including some of its high profile work with global customers. Safecontractor and Contractor Plus are two of the fastest growing accreditors in the UK, ensuring that contractors are competent and compliant to carry out work in their specialist field. LEEA Lifting are a worldwide body providing accreditation and support for all companies involved in the lifting industry. These accreditations put an emphasis on the importance of the quality of the work being carried out by Heightsafe Systems and also highlight the company’s awareness of how accreditations can instil confidence in the work they carry out by existing and future customers.
Ken Diable, Managing Director of Heightsafe Systems, said: "Achieving these accreditations is an excellent example of our continued commitment to maintaining the highest levels of consideration for Health and Safety as well as upholding our reputation as a quality service provider.
The importance of accreditations should never be underestimated, particularly in the specialist field of working at height. Employers are aware of the risks posed to their employees, particularly in the construction industry, when at work. Using a fully accredited and recognised company to ensure that any work carried out is compliant and meets industry regulations is an important factor for any customer large or small. Our commitment to gaining these specialised accreditations shows that we value the importance of being a recognised and reputable firm with our field."
Heightsafe Systems specialist work is one of the most safety conscience fields in any industry, due to the high number of fatalities occurring in the work place because of unsafe working arrangements at height. Between 2012 and 2013 13% of all major accidents at work happened when working at height. Companies across the UK and indeed, the world, are now understanding the importance of safety procedures and the importance of the regulations that are in place. This is why many global companies are turning to specialist contractors to provide compliant safety solutions for the welfare of their workers when working from height. When customers choose a working at height specialist contractor, accreditations provide a reference for their work; assuring the customer that the work will be performed to all attributed regulations in place, particularly the Construction Design and Management regulations that can result in criminal prosecution if they are not accurately followed.
