AFI’s safety efforts recognised

By Steve Ducker31 March 2015

Access and training company AFI has been awarded re-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.

Nick Higgins, AFI group support services director, said: “We are delighted to have achieved re-accreditation – it highlights our continual efforts to achieve and maintain the highest levels of health and safety.”

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 AFI has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example that we hope will be followed by other companies.”

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those meeting the high standard are included on a database 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.
