Top Safety Accreditation For ND Brown

Local business, ND Brown Ltd, has been awarded 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.

About ND Brown Ltd

Employing 35 team members, ND Brown Ltd is principally involved in the Commercial Vehicle Rental sector, specialising in Road Repair and utility industries. With a £7 million yearly turnover, ND Brown’s most recent clients include significant players in these industries such as major infrastructure companies, highways authorities and a number of County and Borough Councils.

ND Brown & SafeContractor

The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

ND Brown Ltd are market leaders in safe working practices and techniques for the specific HGV vehicles they offer either for hire or for sale.

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.

About SafeContractor

The SafeContractor accreditation is applicable to most sectors, although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure – all of which are big users of contracted services.

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 ND Brown Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”

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 one hundred and seventy 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.
