Top Safety Accreditation For Office Profile

17-12-2015

Office Interior Design specialist Office Profile 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 30 people, Office Profile work directly with businesses and specialise in workplace consultancy and office interiors. Office Profile’s most recent clients include leading cross-Atlantic airline, Icelandair, and the Lyric Theatre in London.

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

Bill Stanley, Director of Office Profile said, “We are pleased that our commitment to safety has been recognised by Safecontractor. Office Profile are always continuously improving our health and safety policies and procedures to ensure that they exceed the national standards.”

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 Office Profile has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”

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 the site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as refurbishment, building, maintenance or electrical and mechanical work.
