Top Safety Accreditation for Peter Evans Storage Systems

Posted 19 September 2013
Written by

Local business Peter Evans Storage Systems has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Employing 15 people at their office and warehouse facility in Highbridge, Somerset, Peter Evans Storage Systems is principally involved in the construction sector, specialising in the manufacture, supply and install of mezzanine flooring, racking, shelving, partitioning and suspended ceilings across a range of industries with clients  such as Wolseley UK, Kandy Toys, Numatic International, Lyme Bay Winery, Market Carpets and other national and local organisations.

The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

“The Safecontractor accreditation is a valuable asset for our business and we have been a member of the scheme for two years now. We are pleased to be able to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of health and safety. We are very happy to have received our renewed accreditation.” Chris Thorne – Managing Director

Safecontractor accreditation will 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 big users of contracted services.

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 Peter Evans Storage Systems has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

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 sign 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.

Over one hundred and seventy major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
