Delta Balustrades has added to its impressive array of construction sector credentials by achieving Safecontractor accreditation for its commitment to excellence in health and safety.

A specialist in the design, manufacture and installation of balustrade systems, Delta Balustrades is a leader in its sector and the only company to offer the innovative nTechnology anti-tea staining process across all its stainless steel products.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

The accreditation builds on Delta Balustrades’ 30-year reputation in the construction industry, which has seen the company install balustrades on a wide array of high profile projects including recent schemes at the £430 million Southmead Hospital in Bristol and the £20 million ‘York Minster Revealed’ visitor attraction.

Explains Garth Boyt from Delta Balustrades: “All our balustrades are CE marked in compliance with the Construction Products Regulations 2013 (CPR 2013) and we are an Achilles approved subcontractor with ISO9001, ISO14001 and CHAS accreditations. We also subscribe to Construction Online and Builders Profile.

“These accreditations are important as they give both specifiers and clients a clear indication that we have an ongoing commitment to quality and safety across everything we do. As a result, the marketplace can be confident that a Delta Balustrades system will be delivered to the very highest standards during installation and for its entire service life.”

To achieve Safecontractor accreditation, Delta Balustrades underwent a vetting process that examined its health and safety procedures and track record for safe practice. Only those companies that meet the high standard are included on the Safecontractor database, which is accessible to registered users online.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 210 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

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.

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Delta Balustrades has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
