Top Safety Accreditation for LTH Electronics

LTH Electronics has been awarded accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Employing 21 people, LTH Electronics are involved in various industry sectors, including pharmaceutical, dairy, food and beverage, semiconductor and metal finishing. Our clients include GlaxoSmithkline, Coca Cola, BOC Gases, Arla Foods, Bakkavor Foods, Muller Dairies, Diversey and Britvic Soft Drinks. We understand how important it is to meet the standards required by clients and as a contractor felt that it was important to apply for safecontractor accreditation for a uniform standard across the business and to enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts. LTH’s commitment to safety is now recognised by an independent body and customers wishing to use our services and products can be assured that we meet stringent health and safety standards in every area of the business.

The safecontractor scheme is used by many large organisations as a way of obtaining competent contractors for outsourced business and is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.

John Kinge, technical director of safecontractor said, “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.” “More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that LTH Electronics has. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. 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.”

Under the safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over one hundred and seventy major nation-wide 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.
