Local business J & A Stevenson has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.
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 J & A Stevenson have 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.”
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, nation-wide 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.

The National Mobility Road Show chose the Telford International Centre for their show this year and J & A Stevenson were commissioned by both the event organisers and the International Centre itself to provide two number disabled access ramps, one to the front and one to the rear to help improve disabled access at the venue for the expected 18,000 visitors, many of whom attended on mobility scooters.
The event was a complete success and will now proceed at Telford for the further two years at least.
The Suregrp Polyurethane Herringbone style anti slip evolved from the need to create a market leading anti slip system and the gap in the market for a consistent retrofit anti slip product that is different from the norm for the less industrial type looking projects.
The guidance tactile had a brickett type anti slip polyurethane surface incorporated within the system.
The polyurethane anti slip system has a life expectancy of seven times more than concrete and the slip resistant values are very high.
We supplied our Suredeck 21mm thick marine plywood anti slip panels with the blister type platform tactile incorporated into the sheet all complete with a bullnose front edge white and yellow sight lines.
All work was completed to specification and on time, with minimal disruption to passengers.
