Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
Abtec is principally involved in the building services sector, specialising in reducing the energy used by large buildings with the implementation of ‘smart’ building technology. Last year saw a record turnover for the company with a number of high profile projects, including; Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, F1’s Red Bull Racing factory, and Damien Hirst’s new London gallery.
Dave Watkins, commercial director at Abtec Building Technologies, comments; “We are continuing to see lots of growth and this accreditation will enable us to deliver that growth safely.”
John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, “More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Abtec 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.
