Our Accreditations & Trade Association / Professional Body Memberships
The following accreditations and associations are hard won and maintained. They demonstrate our commitment to providing the safest standards of work that meet current worldwide regulations.
Safe Contractor Approved
A Safe Contractor Charter sets down the benchmark standards against which all contractors are assessed. As there is a wide variation in contractors the Safe Contractor auditors use their experience to audit on a per case basis to a specific level of required evidence which would demonstrate benchmark compliance.
The standards cover health and safety policies, risk assessment and first aid. Asbestos policies are also covered if neccessary.
Auditors are health and safety professionals who have obtained technical qualifications and industry memberships. Such as Masters Degrees in Safety through to NEBOSH General Certificate (the minimum technical requirement) leading to Technical Member status with IOSH.
The overall performance and operation of the auditors is governed by the Santia Accreditation Assessment Guidance Note (SAAGN).
These qualifications are further backed up with practical experience gained from a wide range of industry sectors that include: engineering, construction, maintenance, and consultancy. Continuous individual quality monitoring and performance management programmes ensure quality and consistency with every audit.
Door & Hardware Federation
Established in 1897, the Door & Hardware Federation represents all the key manufacturers and installers of industrial, commercial, pedestrian and garage doors and powered gates.

It is vital that specifiers choose a CE marked product from a DHF member. The CE mark is evidence of product safety compliance under health and safety legislation, and so it helps protect the specifier from litigation in the event of an accident occurring post installation.

Your business must be financially stable and you must pass a credit check
