Uncompromising on Health and Safety

Established in 1995, Metalwash Ltd specialises in the service rental of automated cleaning solutions for all industries across the UK.

“We work with companies in the manufacturing, automotive, and aviation industries and are always looking to grow our business. One of the companies we tendered for, a global manufacturer, asked specifically for SafeContractor accreditation” commented Andrew Young, Director of Metalwash.

“My first priority is making sure all of our employees are safe. In fact, we haven’t had a reportable accident in more than 20 years, so I was sceptical of needing our health and safety policy ‘rubber stamped’. However, I called the SafeContractor team and found them extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They provided templates that actually filled the few gaps we had in our health and safety policy.”

“The accreditation has helped to enhance our reputation for health and safety and raise the profile of our business, opening the door to land the global manufacturer.” continued Andrew.

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 compliant with the law.

In addition, Metalwash Ltd now have access to a whole host of member benefits such as free legal, HR, health and safety advice and a range of discounts to help their business.

“I was unaware of all of the benefits that come with SafeContractor membership. We’re based in Gloucestershire but service clients across the UK. With five service centres running full time I’m looking forward to learning about the fuel card discount. It’s also handy to have options for our energy and insurance if needed” continued Andrew.

Gemma Archibald, 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.”

"We’re thrilled that Metalwash Ltd has joined our community of 33,000 contractors and wish them every success with their accreditation and future growth.”
