Safecontractor says of itself  “…a leading health and safety pre-qualification assessment scheme, we are dedicated to promoting higher standards of competence and compliance through the provision of relevant industry specific and tailored health and safety assessments for all professions and sectors…”

In the recent subcontractor members newsletter they reminded us all of the dangers of asbestos.

Commercial catering engineers are a relatively small group among the plethora of contractors out there. Also, we are fortunate that much, possibly most, of our labours do not put us at risk of asbestos poisoning. However, it is a sad reminder that many contractors die from coming into contact with asbestos through their work on client sites.

It is a reasonable hope and expectation that if a client is aware of asbestos in their building they will inform the visiting contractors! That is the belief we work on anyway!
