Top Safety Certification Award for A-Plant
A-Plant has successfully retained the prestigious SafeHire quality mark certification. The certificate is awarded by the Hire Association Europe (HAE), the internationally recognised leading body for the development of the hire and rental industry. SafeHire is a programme which recognises high standards of health, safety, quality and environmental practices carried out by rental companies.
The prestigious accreditation was awarded after a rigorous inspection which included a detailed audit of 12 Service Centres which were randomly selected by the HAE to represent a cross-section of the business, to ensure they met its stringent safety and quality criteria.
A-Plant’s Head of Performance Standards, Chris Ryan said, “We are delighted to retain the SafeHire certification. Our Service Centres demonstrated our number one priority is to ensure the health and safety of all those who come into contact with our equipment - whether they are our employees or our customers. The certification reflects the integrity of A-Plant’s exceptional processes and procedures, and gives customers the assurance that our staff actually practice them.”
The SafeHire Private Standard has been developed with the assistance of BSI and continues to be recognised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). By securing SafeHire certification the hire company will also be automatically entered onto the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) - the leading public sector procurement database.
