CGM Group has once again been awarded the Safecontractor accreditation 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 over 150 people, CGM Group specialises in grounds maintenance, landscaping, arboriculture and facilities services with offices in Downham Market, Norwich, Cambridge and Peterborough and customers throughout East Anglia.
The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to facilities management, food manufacture, property, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contracted services.
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.
