HAMPSHIRE, UK, Jan. 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Smartcool Systems UK Ltd. is pleased to announce that it has been awarded accreditation from safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. The
program is a leading third party accreditation scheme, which recognizes
very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK
Smartcool is an energy efficiency provider focusing on lowering the
electrical consumption of customers' commercial refrigeration, air
conditioning and heat pump systems through retrofit solutions including
its own ECO3 and ESM products. Smartcool provides full project management services
to UK customers, in order to ensure the successful implementation of
the ECO3, ESM and third party energy efficiency products. Customers
typically receive a return on investment from a Smartcool project in
less than 36 months.
Smartcool's application for safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the
business. Achieving this highly respected certification will enhance
the company's ability to attract new contracts from leading UK firms
who only work with contractors with this level of qualification.
"We are thrilled to have been awarded the safecontractor certificate," says Steven Martin, Executive VP of Smartcool. "This not
only gives our existing customers an added level of comfort in working
with us, but will also give us a competitive edge in approaching major
new accounts across the UK."
"Major organizations 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," adds John Kinge, Technical Director of safecontractor. "More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good
risk management in the way that Smartcool has done. The company's high
standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other
companies within the sector."
Under the safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a rigorous review process which examines
health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice.
Those companies meeting the high standard are included in a database
Over 170 major national businesses from several key sectors have signed
up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services including
electrical and mechanical work. These clients use the database to vet
potential contractors before they even set foot on site, and will only
engage contractors who have received safecontractor accreditation.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider
accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
