Top Safety Accreditation for Shield Electrical Services Ltd

Local Swindon business Shield Electrical Services Ltd 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 20 + people, Shield Electrical is principally involved in the Electrical installation sector, specialising in a broad range of electrical services and Public and Private sector industries and with a £1.5 million turnover. Shield’s clients include council and local authorities to schools/academies, building contractors, hotels and large industrial companies.
The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by our commitment to provide the best Health & Safety standard across our business. Shield Electricals mission statement is to secure long term customer relationships by providing them the best value for all services provided.

John Salter Managing Director Shield Electrical Services Ltd.
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.

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 Shield Electrical Services Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.
