Case studies  

“In the last two years our business has seen significant growth because of our SafeContractor accreditation. We have recently been awarded work with two of the biggest companies in the UK, one of which we now work across a number of their sites – this will double our business turnover!

If we did not have SafeContractor accreditation, we would not be allowed to work on these sites.

As a small business this is a big milestone for us and a step in the right direction – long may it continue”

Mike Peters, Operations Director - City Fire Solutions Ltd
