Merritts pass SafeContractor Audit

SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises high standards for health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on an online database, which is accessible to registered users.

SafeContractor gives businesses the peace of mind that their supply chain is secure and resilient and allows contractors to demonstrate that they meet the necessary requirements around health and safety, environmental, modern slavery, diversity, equality, workplace wellbeing and financial stability, all in one product.

Hundreds of major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have already signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for their industrial projects.

Merritts Machine Movers are principally involved in providing innovative lifting, transport, installation and storage solutions to the world’s leading machinery manufacturers, agents, distributors and manufacturing companies.

We demonstrate our commitment to health and safety prior to the commencement of works by providing customers with a comprehensive suite of documents to evidence our credentials. This gives them confidence that their project will be carried out safely and in accordance with the required legislation. These documents include method statements, risk assessments, lift plans, personnel training records, and plant and equipment inspection certificates.

Please get in touch if you have a heavy machinery moving project you would like us to look at. We will be able to provide you with a safe, efficient, and cost effective solution.
