Top safety accreditation for Rolton Group

Added: 13th December 2016 by Rolton Group


We are delighted to announce that Rolton Group has now been officially awarded accreditation from SafeContractor – a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

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 Rolton Group 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.

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

Peter Rolton, Chairman of Rolton Group, said: “We’re pleased to confirm that Rolton Group is now officially a fully accredited member having passed the high standards of SafeContractor’s assessment criteria. As such, all of our clients (both existing and prospective) can rest assured that they’re in safe hands with us.”
