What does it mean to be part of the Safe Contractor scheme?

Choosing a reputable roofing company can be a very daunting task, as if the job goes wrong there is a great deal at stake. One of the key things you should look out for during your search are the accreditations they have been awarded, as these will indicate the quality of their work and their compliance with relevant regulations. This article will serve to explain what it means to be part of the Safe Contractor scheme, so you know exactly what this entails when checking the credibility of a roofing company.

What is the Safe Contractor scheme?

Run by the Government, the Safe Contractor scheme is a third party accreditation scheme which acknowledges high health and safety standards amongst UK contractors and consultants. From asbestos removal and roofing to office cleaning and food manufacturing, all types of contractors are invited to join the scheme.

As part of the Safe Contractor scheme, companies undergo thorough checks which examine the health and safety procedures they have in place, as well as their history of safe practice. The companies identified as complying with the high standard are featured on a database, which is only accessible to registered users who wish to vet potential contractors before they start a project.

According to the official Safe Contractor site, accredited companies will have permission to use the Safe Contractor logo for their own marketing, including brochures and websites. This will make it easier for potential customers to identify reputable companies who have been awarded the Safe Contractor accreditation, as it reflects the company’s commitment to health and safety and allows them to stand out from the competition.

What does this mean for the customer?

When it comes to providing excellent customer service, safe, quality workmanship is paramount. As such, those who hire the expertise of a company which is part of the Safe Contractor scheme can rest assured knowing that they are in the hands of a contractor they can trust.

The most recent figures from Safe Contractor show that there are over 24,000 contractors in the scheme, all of which are dedicated to providing the highest standard of service possible.
