ATS Euromaster has successfully renewed its SafeContractor accreditation for the ninth consecutive year, following a rigorous audit confirming the company’s commitment to safety.
The renewal means that ATS Euromaster continues to automatically meet the health and safety requirements of more than 370 major businesses nationwide in sectors such as building and construction, cleaning, electrical and engineering work.
The tyre and vehicle maintenance specialist has held the accreditation since 2009 and received its renewal after undergoing one of the toughest vetting processes in the industry. ATS Euromaster was assessed on its ability to demonstrate continuous improvement in health and safety arrangements, training programmes and risk assessment policies.
Paul Millward, Health, Safety and Environmental Manager for ATS Euromaster, says: “Many customers require their suppliers to hold SafeContractor accreditation to prove they work safely. This latest renewal shows them that our expert technicians and service centres continue to meet the highest standards of safe working, and our track record shows that we’ve consistently done so for the last nine years.”
SafeContractor is one of the fastest growing health and safety assessment schemes in the UK with more than 28,000 members and 370 clients. It is part of the Alcumus Group, the provider of technology-enabled compliance risk management, certification and verification services.
The latest renewal of SafeContractor reinforces ATS Euromaster’s health and safety credentials in its sector. It has held the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Gold Award since 2014 and been a member of the Contractors’ Health and Safety Scheme (CHAS) since 2010. The company was the first, and is still the only, national tyre specialist to hold all three accreditations.
