23.01.2017 Barton wins SafeContractor approval

Barton Fabrications, the UK’s largest manufacturer of aluminium storage silos, has been awarded accreditation from SafeContractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety. The scheme aims to harmonise safety standards across industry and, specifically for the food and plastics industry, helps simplify silo supplier assessment and selection. Mark Barton, managing director and owner of Barton Fabrications, commented: “We are delighted to receive the accreditation in recognition of the high standards of health and safety procedures we adopt and the record we have achieved. Our aim is to make on-site silo installation a safe and simple process for the customer and the SafeContractor award gives the customer third party reassurance that we meet the highest levels of on-site safe working procedures.”
Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the SafeContractor scheme when selecting contractors, whereby businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Companies meeting the scheme’s high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users via the SafeContractor website.
