Recognition in health & safety
Motive8 has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety for the second year running. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. Motive8’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Facilities Manager, Richard Moon, said:
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. Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process that 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 that 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 210 major nationwide 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.
