Ralspeed Safe contractor

Ralspeed 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.

Employing 15 people, Ralspeed Ltd is principally involved in the LV Switchgear sector, specialising in the Pumping and Motor Control industries with a £2 million turnover. Ralspeeds most recent clients have included major players such as Exsel Pumps, Selwood Ltd, Andrews Sykes Ltd , Xylem Water Solutions Ltd, Storth Machinery Ltd, Euroflo Fluid Handling Ltd and many more.

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

Simon Finlay, Ralspeed Ltd’s Technical Director explains “Health & Safety has always been paramount and our safety record speaks for itself, adding Safecontractor accreditation to our approvals is a key part of continuing our high level of safety standards for both our staff and the clients sites we operate on. We also hope this will aid us in gaining new customers and contracts based on the high level of service we provide while continuing to keep the highest level of Health & Safety”.

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 Ralspeed Ltd 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.
