Sheffield-based Martin-Brooks has achieved a hat trick of industry accolades acknowledging the firm’s commitment to rooftop safety and its standing within the profession.
The roofing specialists have become members of SAFEcontractor, The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and Constructionline, all of which recognise its abilities.
SAFEcontractor accreditation demonstrates the quality of Martin-Brooks’ health and safety procedures and its track record for good practice. The scheme aims to improve safety within the construction industry by implementing a uniform standard and rigorous vetting process. Firms who make the grade are then added to a database that is available to key decision makers in the tender process.
Martin-Brooks’ membership of CHAS and Constructionline provide government endorsement of its skills. CHAS accreditation is a demonstration of the firm’s compliance and understanding of the health and safety laws, whilst Constructionline is a national register for contractors and consultants who meet a standard set of pre-qualification criteria, based on financial standing and technical references.
Nicola Jackson, Martin-Brooks’ health and safety officer, said: “Large organisations need to be confident that the firms they employ comply with current health and safety regulations. Achieving membership of schemes that prove we are committed to operating safely underlines our competency and expertise. We are very pleased to add these latest industry standards to our growing list of accreditations and look forward to working with likeminded companies who value our commitment to risk management.”
