West Pennine Trucks achieves Safecontractor accreditation

SafeContractor-Roundel-RWest Pennine Trucks’ Middleton depot is pleased to announce they have been awarded Safecontractor accreditation.

The safecontractor scheme is driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business and is used by many large organisations as a way of identifying a suitable and competent contractor. With more than 210 major clients and over 20,000 contractor members, safecontractor is one of the fastest-growing health and safety assessment schemes in the UK.

Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process that examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database of accredited contractors, which is accessible online to registered users only at

Middleton depot manager Michael Skilbeck says “Large organisations cannot take the risk of employing a contractor that is unable to demonstrate a high standard of working, this accreditation will serve to reassure customers that we understand the importance and value of adopting an extremely high standard of safety and risk management for both staff and customers; our understanding for the right calibre technician in providing high quality in the workplace”.
