Safe Contractor Approved

Complete Facilities Solutions (CFS) have been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

In our aim to become the total FM company, we continue to strive to be the best we can for ourselves and our customers. From our head offices in Wimbledon, South London our team work tirelessly servicing companies throughout London and the South East of England.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

CFS’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

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.

“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 Complete Facilities Solutions 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.”

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.
