What is Safecontractor?

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 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.

Safecontractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses Health and Safety arrangements. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the Safecontractor certificate as confirmation of competency.
