Leading container repair and refurbishment company, UK Container Maintenance (UKCM) has been awarded a coveted accreditation from Safecontractor for its’ commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.
Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme, which recognises high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
As part of the initiative, only those companies meeting the standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users via a website. Client-organisations which sign up to the scheme access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before setting foot on site.
Emma Elston MBE, CEO of Cheshire-based UKCM, commented: “This accreditation reaffirms to all our stakeholders our unfailing commitment to health and safety.
As part of the Safecontractor audit, we were subject to a thorough vetting process examining our health and safety procedures, and our track record for safe practice.”
John Kinge, technical director of Cardiff-based Safecontractor said, “More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that UKCM has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
UKCM, the UK’s largest family-owned container repair and refurbishment company, is known for a forward moving approach and a range of innovative services which are sustainable and environmentally friendly.
