Carpark Barriers and Turnstiles and its parent company Tensor plc are celebrating achieving a top industry SAFEContractor Certificate gained for the high standard of health and safety (H&S) practices attained. The accreditation is awarded every year and reflects the H&S side of the firm’s work in the installation and maintenance of its huge range of gates, bollards, barriers and turnstiles; plus the company’s role in other security and Access Control systems.
The accreditation will help attract new contracts as it can be used to demonstrate to clients the high standard of health and safety the firm has reached among UK contractors. Tensor was sent a letter of confirmation from SAFEContractor, based in Caerphilly in Wales, and is on the website www.safecontractor.com as an approved contractor. Under the SAFEContractor system businesses undergo a vetting process which examines their H&S procedures and policies.
The following health and safety topics were considered during the assessment: H&S policy and training, communication with employees, insurance cover, emergency procedures, risk assessments, work equipment testing and maintenance, personal protective equipment, first aid and accident reporting/investigation, and control of substances hazardous to health, implementation of the policy.
