SAFE CONTRACTOR ACCREDITATION

Driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business, the Hotchkiss Engineering Group recently underwent a vetting process which examined our health and safety procedures and track record for safe practice. Able to meet the high standards required, the Group was awarded Safe Contractor Accreditation in January 2016, and is included on the database for selection by client business users of the scheme - thus enhancing the Group's ability to attract new contracts.

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 the

Hotchkiss Engineering 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."
