BeA achieves additional accreditation

BeA, the manufacturer of fastening systems, tools and consumables, has added to its list of quality and safety accreditations.

The business, which specialises in meeting the needs of the furniture and bed production sector, is already certified to ISO 9001 standards and by the German TÜV.

Recently, it has complemented these certifications by becoming an accredited SafeContractor.

With more than 270 major clients and over 24,000 contractor members, SafeContractor is the UK's fastest growing health and safety assessment scheme.

To become an accredited SafeContractor, businesses must undergo a rigorous and independent audit process. This examines their health and safety procedures and their track record of safe practice.

Companies meeting the required high standards are then featured on a database accessible to registered client organisations.

This enables client organisations to vet the ability of potential contractors to comply with their own health and safety requirements before a contractor even sets foot on site.

Clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will only engage contractors who have received accreditation.

Over 210 market leading businesses from several key sectors have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

Commenting on BeA’s accreditation, John Mercer, managing director at the company, said: "As a business, BeA is committed to offering high quality products backed by the highest levels of service and support.

“Our efforts to become an accredited SafeContractor reflect this. We wanted to give customers immediate reassurance of the high levels of health and safety awareness amongst all our team and especially our field based service engineers and technical sales representatives.”
