The safest choice for compressed air supply

The safest choice for compressed air supply

Friday 2nd October 2009

The UK's biggest supplier of compressed air products and process systems, Thorite, has received renewed accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises exceptional standards of health and safety practice in industry.

In order to originally gain SAFEcontractor status Thorite was subjected to an in-depth vetting process, which examined all aspects of health and safety procedures, along with the company's past record of safe working practice.

First awarded accreditation in 2007, Thorite is particularly pleased to be able to demonstrate that it has maintained the highest H&S standards, enabling the company to continue to be included on the www.safecontractor.com website.

Employer-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they set foot on their premises.  These employers agree that, as users of the scheme, they will only deal with those who have received SAFEcontractor accreditation.

Commenting on Thorite's 2009 accreditation Stephen Wright, the company's Managing Director said: "It is crucial for companies installing mechanical products and systems to industry to operate within stringent levels of health & safety procedures, for the benefit of their own staff, those employed by their clients - and the public at large.  I'm extremely proud that our standards of safe working have once again been demonstrated to be of the highest order."
