SAFEcontractor Accreditation for Impact Technical Services

We have received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors. Impact Technical Services is principally involved in the service and maintenance sector, ensuring COSHH standards are met, along with the service and maintenance of equipment installed by sister company, Impact Air Systems, along with with having many more clients under their belt.

Managing director, Nick Ball said, “In recent years we have raised our game to be the best. We have improved the quality of our service and our health & safety standards are no exception. We pride ourselves on going the extra step and it is satisfying for our hard work to be recognised with this accreditation.”

The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to 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 contract services. John Kinge, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said, "Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies". "More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Impact Technical Services has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector".
