SafeSite Facilities goes for gold

SafeSite Facilities, whose business is to make construction sites safe and secure, has successfully completed the Constructionline Gold membership process.

Over the past 20 years Constructionline has supported the construction industry by providing access to a wide range of procurement contracts and certified suppliers.

Reaching Gold membership status involves companies undergoing extensive prequalification checks. Successful completion of the process provides reassurance to specifiers and buyers who are looking for high quality suppliers.

Michael Knibbs, Managing Director of SafeSite Facilities, said: “Ensuring we are compliant with fast-changing industry standards and regulations is crucial. Achieving Constructionline Gold membership was key for us a company to give confidence and credibility to new clients.

“The enhanced validation process we have completed to achieve goes far beyond the requirements of PAS91. It assessed our credentials for environmental management, quality management and equal opportunities. It also examined our adherence to the modern slavery act and our anti-bribery and corruption policies, which are important standards that the public sector is expected to comply with.

“As a Constructionline Gold member, we are also assessed for SSIP, which we know is an important consideration for clients when they are selecting a supplier. Clients can have peace of mind when they choose us they are working with an industry-approved and fully accredited partner.”

The Rye Group provided a supporting reference for the successful application. Damian Ryan, Business Development Manager, said: “We were delighted to back SafeSite Facilities’ submission for ConstructionLine Gold membership, having recently contracted the team to secure the former Kodak factory site in Harrow, which is currently being redeveloped to provide residential housing. This was a complex project, involving night working and the installation of traffic management measures in a busy location while the site perimeter was secured. SafeSite Facilities completed the work on time and to a high standard, enabling the safe flow of vehicle and pedestrian traffic around the site. When we select any supplier it’s vital that they are fully compliant with any relevant industry standards. The determination from SafeSite Facilities to go beyond the minimum that the industry asks for really sets them apart and is testament to their commitment to driving up standards in the market.”

SafeSite Facilities provides a wide range of construction site safety and security products, available to buy or hire, including monitored alarm and CCTV systems, water filled barriers, safety fencing and hoarding.
