Klima-Therm's commitment to health and safety has seen it join sister company LH plc in earning Safecontractor accreditation.
The two companies are leading chiller and air conditioning specialists, supplying, installing and servicing high performance, innovative low carbon solutions for some of the biggest names on the high street as well as global Blue Chip financial organisations.
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.
"Companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Klima-Therm has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies in the sector.”
Safecontractor accreditation requires detailed vetting of a company’s health and safety procedures and track record for safe practice. Companies meeting the high standard are awarded the Safecontractor mark, and included on a database which can be searched by client organisations, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site.
Tim Mitchell, Sales Director of Klima-Therm, said: “This is a valuable and visible stamp of approval for our approach to health and safety, which has been part of the Klima-Therm/LH philosophy from the beginning. Working with some of the biggest and best-known companies requires the very highest standards, in all aspects of what we deliver. We pride ourselves in our safe working as much as in the innovation and impeccable environmental credentials of our technology. They are part of the same quality approach that has always been our hallmark.”
