Top Safety Accreditation for Belvidere Lifts Ltd

Local business Belvidere Lifts 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.


Employing ten people, Belvidere specialises in lift installation, servicing, breakdowns and repairs.and with almost a £1 million turnover. Belvidere’s most recent clients have included major players such as Welsh Assembly Government, MITIE, Morris Property, Ryman stores and Telford Shopping Centre


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


Lesley Nankivell director said this is a fantastic achievement for our company; we have put a lot of effort and resources in gaining safecontractor, this shows our continued commitment to health and safety and will be welcomed by our employees and existing customers.


safecontractor accreditation will also 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 engineering,food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, 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 Belvidere Lifts 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 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, Lift maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
