The UK’s Specialist Low Ground Pressure Hirer achieve UK-leading SafeContractor accreditation for the third consecutive year.

AJK Plant Hire Ltd is both a Plant Hire and Contracting company that has provided specialist low ground pressure (LGP) machinery throughout the UK. Having provided the latest LGP machinery to specialist sectors for over 50 years, AJK Plant Hire Ltd understand the level of service and quality of machinery required to deliver exceptional results on every project.

AJK Plant Hire Ltd demonstrate health and safety excellence with SafeContractor accreditation.

“We are delighted to have been awarded SafeContractor approved status for the third year in a row. Ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, clients and visitors is our biggest priority as a business, which is why we joined the SafeContractor health and safety accreditation scheme in 2018.

We provide specialist low ground pressure machinery to a wide range of sectors across the UK and are proud to have established a reputation as excellent plant providers. Undertaking construction work in sensitive environments means that we need to demonstrate a uniform standard of health and safety compliance across our business to new and existing clients.” commented Andy Wright (Hire, transport and compliance controller) at AJK Plant Hire Ltd.

SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation, verifies an organisation’s health and safety compliance and connects contractors to leading organisations through an online portal. This showcases their profile to hundreds of companies that only work with our 33,000 SafeContractor members, saves time and money when bidding on new tenders and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices are compliant with the law.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, says: "No-one goes to work to get injured. Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.

“SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process. During the current economic impact of COVID-19 it’s more important than ever that contractors enhance their reputation and win work by continuing to demonstrate their commitment to delivering the highest standards of health and safety compliance.”

To continue safely providing plant hire and contracting services to clients, AJK Plant Hire Ltd quickly implemented limited travel, remote meetings and appropriate sanitisation and social distancing measures at each depot and on every project.
Kenneth Percival (Director) says: “In view of the current global pandemic of Coronavirus and the Government restrictions and requirements put in place, we recognise our responsibilities and duties to keep our staff, clients and visitors as safe as possible. AJK Plant Hire Ltd are committed to do whatever is necessary to comply with Government guidelines and advice during these difficult times.”
