UPL has become one of the latest companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industries across the UK improve safety records. We recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises exceptionally high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK contractors.
Darran Hughes, Operations Director of SAFEcontractor, said, ‘Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies. Companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that UPL has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the utilities and energy management sector’.
