Parcar Ltd has been awarded a top safety award by securing 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.
Parcar is principally involved in the Electrical & Mechanical Contracting sector specialising in the commercial, construction, industrial and defence industries and with a £1.7 million turnover. Parcar's most recent clients have included major players in their target markets including some of the UK's biggest FM, FMCG, Technology sector and defence industry companies.
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.
Peter Bond, general manager of Parcar commented; "Parcar Ltd is delighted to have secured accreditation to SafeContractor. The company has an unrivalled commitment to health & safety excellence and the training of its personnel to the highest standards. Committing to new accreditations ensures we are challenged to constantly enhance and develop our safety procedures".
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 Parcar Ltd 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."
