At Chimflue, we have been approved by SAFEcontractor since 2006 and are continually updating our Health & Safety and Environmental policies and procedures to ensure we protect our workforce and stay in line with the current legislation. To discover more about what SAFEcontractor accreditation means please read on below and follow the link to their website.

“SAFEcontractor is an accreditation scheme that assesses the health & safety competency of contractors and service providers. Clients have a legal obligation to ensure that external contractors and service providers working on their premises operate in a safe way. There is therefore a need to assess contractor’s health & safety arrangements and increasingly this is being carried out through SAFEcontractor.

Many large organisations now use SAFEcontractor as their primary means of selecting contractors.”
