The Benefits of Working With a Safe Contractor Approved Company

What are the benefits of working with a Safe Contractor Approved Company?

Legislative Health and Safety compliance is a huge part of the construction and manufacturing sectors, and has become increasingly more complex for companies to monitor. When your business is looking for a new supplier their compliance can become a massive risk to you – not to mention it can take hours to obtain the correct information even before placing an order. Consideration also needs to be given for reviewing your supplier information regularly to ensure they remain complaint. When choosing a Safe Contractor Approved Company this risk is minimised and the hard work is done for you. With a few clicks of a button, you will be able to view a huge number of suppliers who you can be certain are compliant.  This leaves you with more time to focus on what’s important in your business.

Why do businesses become Safe Contractor Approved?

Safe contractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme which recognizes extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors and it is used by thousands of organizations.  Here at LAC, we are involved in the manufacturing sector, specialising in the manufacture of conveyor systems and automation solutions including robotic palletising, traditional conveyors, sortation systems and much more. We work with businesses of all sizes, including some of the most well-known brands globally including Amazon, Hermes, DHL, Next and Greggs – so it is essential that we can demonstrate to our customers that we recognise our responsibilities of health and safety management. Being SafeContractor approved also highlights that we committed to continuously improve our safety systems.

What are the benefits of the SafePQQ Questionnaire?

At LAC, we are committed to health and safety and we view health and safety management responsibilities as the company’s top priority. To complement our SafeContractor membership, we have also opted to complete the SafePQQ questionnaire which verifies key environmental, ethical and financial topics. This has been increasingly important as the Coronavirus Pandemic has driven financial uncertainty across the board and offers our customers greater visibility of their supply chain compliance. This in turn helps them to minimize their risk to the business, including eradicating modern slavery, complying to environmental obligations, meeting social value and ensuring your suppliers are financially secure. The SafePQQ is aligned to meet the requirements of PAS91 so you don’t need to search in 2 places – everything you need is held within SafeContractor.
