GAP achieves Safecontractor accreditation

GAP Hire Solutions, the UK’s leading independent complete hire solutions company, has achieved Safecontractor accreditation, confirming our robust approach and ongoing commitment to excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading industry scheme that assesses the health and safety competence of contractors and service providers throughout the UK, recognising companies who prioritise appropriate health and safety standards in the workplace. The scheme is designed to review and audit the health and safety policies and procedures of companies to ensure that they are always kept up-to-date.

The Safecontractor accreditation will give GAP customers extra peace of mind that we are working in the safest way possible across all of our operations. It complements the recent BS OHSAS 18001 accreditation achieved by GAP in 2014 which confirms our safe systems of work, health and safety policies and related documentation are fully compliant with the stringent standards required and will sit alongside existing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditations in quality and environmental management respectively. 

GAP’s Head of SHE (Safety, Health, Environment) Risk & Compliance, Allister Maxwell, commented: 

I am delighted with our Safecontractor accreditation as it confirms we are a company committed to the highest safe working standards. GAP will always strive to maintain these standards for both our customers and employees in the workplace.
