Evacusafe Awarded Further Professional Accreditation
Article date: 22/07/2014
This week Evacusafe are proud to announce they have been awarded SAFEcontractor accreditation, further enhancing the Company’s integrity as a promoter of health and safety. SAFEcontractor is the fastest growing health and safety accreditation scheme in the UK. This marks another success for Evacusafe by demonstrating their respectability and highlighting their universal recognition as a leading provider of evacuation equipment, training and servicing.
The purpose of the award is to recognise a company’s commitment to promoting higher standards of competence and compliance to health & safety, and to seek proof that they have solid policies in place. SAFEcontractor accreditation is becoming a prerequisite for organisations looking to secure contracts with major companies across all business sectors.
In order to achieve the accreditation, Evacusafe were rigorously audited and thorough checks were performed in relation to their provisions for employees; including staff training provision, training records and ISO procedures.
Sales and Marketing Manager for Evacusafe, David Della-Savina, said “As a company we’re extremely honoured to announce that we’ve been awarded SAFEcontractor accreditation, as this keeps in with our commitment to high moral standards and ethical principles. This recognition has many benefits; it further enhances our credibility as a company and highlights our commitment to safety, making us even more appealing to potential new customers. We are now listed on the national database of recognised contractors, and we can display the SAFEcontractor logo on our documentation and website so that anyone looking for a supplier of evacuation chairs, training courses or chair servicing can rest assured of our integrity as a competent contractor.
We believe that having SAFEcontractor accreditation will enhance Evacusafe’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. It’s yet another professional accreditation under the Evacusafe belt.”
