Paul Smoker Roofing Ltd achieve UK-leading SafeContractor accreditation for H&S compliance

Paul Smoker Roofing Ltd is a full-range roofing services provider with an ethos of delivering exceptional service at affordable prices to its customers. An award-winning business, they have over 20 years’ experience in providing professional and reliable roofing within Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall.

Paul Smoker Roofing enhance their reputation by demonstrating health & safety excellence

“We found out shortly before lockdown that we had passed our SafeContractor audit and are so proud to have gotten over the line and achieved the accreditation. Announcing that our Health & Safety compliance has passed SafeContractor’s rigorous audit standards is an important step in our journey to improving the image and public perception of roofing contractors.” commented Danielle Smoker, Managing Director at Paul Smoker Roofing Ltd.

“Achieving SafeContractor accreditation enables us to demonstrate a uniform standard of health and safety compliance across our business. This enhances our ability to win new contracts with clients who want to work with contractors who are compliant with legislation and committed to achieving and maintaining health and safety best practice.” continued Danielle.

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 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. During the current economic impact of COVID-19 its 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.”

How Paul Smoker Roofing Ltd are safely returning to work

Commenting on the current climate surrounding COVID-19, Paul Smoker, Managing Director said “We closed the firm down and furloughed all our employees when the government initiated the lockdown, and all jobs booked in and all jobs in progress were put on hold until further notice. Thankfully all our customers were incredibly understanding throughout this unprecedented time. We safely returned to work in May with new procedures, policies and risk assessments in place.”
