Thorns puts clients in safe hands

16th September 2009

Thorns Group is one of the latest companies to join a leading scheme designed to recognise high standards of health and safety.

The group has received SAFEcontractor accreditation, which certifies the health and safety competency of contractors and service providers by auditing their systems and checking their health and safety arrangements.

Joe Frazer, Thorns Group Director, said: “This accreditation aims to reduce health and safety risks to our clients and help them fulfil their legal obligations by ensuring our staff working on their premises operate in a safe way.

“Health and safety has always been a key focus for Thorns Group. Joining the SAFEcontractor scheme has allowed us to independently prove this commitment and increase the confidence of our clients.”

SAFEcontractor has a membership of more than 16,500 contractors and service providers and is used by 130 major blue-chip clients including some of the UK’s biggest names such as Sainsbury’s, HSBC, Nestle, Virgin Atlantic and ITV.
