Who are CW Tree Services
Top Safety Accreditation for CW Tree Services! Local business CW Tree Services 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.
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 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.” SAFE CONTRACTOR WEBSITE
Nearly 40 years ago the AA established its Approved Contractor scheme to set the standard for tree work – an industry not regulated by government but one that cares for the largest living organisms on the planet in some of the most hostile growing environments.
In 2012 the scheme attained ISO 9001 (UKAS) accreditation in recognition of its quality management systems and is now a registered member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement forum, the ‘umbrella’ organisation for recognised health & safety schemes in the UK.) This brings further acceptance and credibility to its scheme members as the national standard for arboricultural contracting businesses.
The ARB Approved Contractor scheme offers a recognised benchmark for arboricultural contracting throughout the UK and Ireland and is increasingly required by Local Authorities and other large commercial organisations. ARB Approved Contractor is also of benefit in the domestic sector as a quality mark assuring the client of good quality tree care undertaken safely and efficiently. Take the risk and hassle out of hiring a tradesman you can trust.
The National Proficiency Tests Council issues certificates of competency in a range of practical skills, attesting the holders ability to carry out tasks in a safe and proficient fashion.
Most important of these to the arborist or tree surgeon are certificates of competence in the use of chainsaws. You should not employ anyone using a chainsaw who does not hold the relevant NPTC certificate. NPTC also tests tree climbing, aerial rescue and the use of chippers and stump grinders.
