Top Safety Accreditation for Marble Master Ltd

Top Safety Accreditation for Marble Master Ltd

Local business Marble Master has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for it 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 25 people, Marble Master is principally involved in the Stone Restoration and Stonework sector, specialising in the stone restoration of Grade 2 Listed buildings and Terrazzo renovation and repair industries and with a £750 million turnover. Marble Master’s most recent clients have included major players such as The Guildhall, Barbican Center, Salters Hall, Freemasons Hall, Heathrow Terminal 5, Kensington Palace, 10 Downing St .

The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform

standard across the business.

We are very happy to have displayed our commitment to safety by obtaining the Safecontractor stamp of

approval. This is earned not given like the usual comparison contractor sites springing up all over the web.

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.

Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to 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 XX 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 210 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.
