Civil Safety Training & Rescue is pleased to announce that we’ve been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for our commitment to achieving excellence in health, safety and wellbeing. Regarded as one of the UK’s leading health and safety schemes, Safecontractor recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Managing Director of Civil Safety Training & Rescue, Ben Edgley, said “Safecontractor accreditation is a great achievement for us. We are very proud to be accredited and to show our dedication to achieving high standards across the business”. 

To become Safecontractor accredited we underwent a thorough vetting process which examined our health and safety procedures and track record for safe practice. There were numerous checks on our insurance, qualifications, accreditations, health and safety policies and more. Having met the high standards required we’re now included on a database, which is accessible to registered users 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.
