CY Electrical & Cranes Co Ltd, one of the largest independent operators in crane and hoist maintenance business, awarded UK-leading SafeContractor accreditation.

CY Electrical & Cranes Co Ltd offer a full spectrum of electrical and mechanical maintenance services to their customers, ranging from large multi-nationals, multi-site companies and small companies.

“CY Electrical & Cranes Co Ltd are major suppliers of all types of lifting equipment and associated products and have been for over 25 years. We have built up a wide range of suppliers and clients, and continue to thrive in a competitive market by delivering the highest quality products and services. To continue delivering high standards we joined SafeContractor, so that we could enhance our reputation for health and safety and demonstrate compliance to our wide range of clients.” commented Keith Cadwallader MCMI, Contracts Manager at CY Electrical & Cranes Co Ltd.

“Having recently joined the scheme, this was the first time we have achieved SafeContractor approved status, and it was incredibly useful as it has shown us areas where we can improve our health and safety documentation and processes to ensure that we keep these up to date. So, in addition to the approved contractor status the added benefit is that our internal health and safety processes have improved.”

“We are very grateful to everyone in the SafeContractor team who supported us through this process, the support we have received from first registration through to final approval from SafeContractor has been excellent. Given this was our first audit, we found that the additional cost of the support provided by the Assisted Package, providing us with one-to-one support throughout the entire audit is was well worth the money.” continued Keith.

For contractors that want to enhance their reputation for health and safety, SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation, verifies their compliance and connects contractors to leading organisations through an online portal. This enhances their profile to hundreds of companies that only work with 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 complaint with the law.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: "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.”

“To provide varying levels of support to our contractors, we developed membership packages that help through the accreditation process based on a contractor’s need for speed and support. Our Assisted package is ideal for contractors who are new to health and safety paperwork and would like dedicated and personalised support through the accreditation journey.”

"We’re thrilled to have CY Electrical & Cranes Co Ltd join SafeContractor, and congratulate them on achieving accreditation for the first time. We wish them every success with their future and are proud to have them within our community of over 33,000 contractors.”
