Top Safety Accreditation for Robinsons

Home | News | Top Safety Accreditation for Robinsons

Local business Robinsons Ltd 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 101 people, Robinsons Ltd is principally involved in the manufacture of steel framed buildings to Industrial and Agricultural specifications, and with a £12.7 million turnover. There most recent clients have included major players such as Lidl, Paragon Inks, Rosti (UK) and Grants Distillery to name but a few.  

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

Managing Director Ryan Brown states

“Being awarded accreditation from Safecontractor is a great achievement for us. It will enhance our offering and our clients can be reassured that we are committed to the safety of our workers and contractors. This award strengthens our position as one of the premier construction companies in the UK by being recognised for our high standards of workmanship.”  

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 Robinsons Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example that 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 in a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.  

Client organisations who sign up for 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.
