RICHMOND Home Improvement Co is delighted to announce it has again been awarded accreditation from the three main Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) supported by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).
Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is a body committed to promoting a common standard for the assessment of supply chain health and safety compliance and reducing duplication in health and safety prequalification.
Safety Management Advisory Services (SMAS) are a health and safety assessment organisation, working with many of the major UK housebuilders and construction organisations.
Finally, Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Allan Tofield of Richmond said: “We are delighted to again meet the strict criteria of the CHAS, SMAS and SafeContractor Schemes. Our fully employed staff are regularly updated and trained on best practice for Health and Safety, asbestos awareness, working at height and manual handling etc. and all our work is fully guaranteed.
“Our application for these accreditations were driven by the high standards they demand to illustrate our dedication to our work which is illustrated by the many testimonials from our satisfied clients” he added.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus 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 Richmond has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
