Safecontractor

Safecontractor was initially developed as a bespoke project for a Property Management client, who wished to outsource the annual vetting of contractors on its approved list. Interest shown by other similar clients identified the potential for a standardised system that could be offered to the whole of the company’s client base.

In 1999, SupplyLine was born. After further development the product was expanded to provide web based access to its clients, and was re-branded as Safecontractor in 2003.

SIA

CRN Contract Services Limited currently holds Approved Contractor status for the provision of security guarding services. The Security Industry Authority is the organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry. We are an independent body reporting to the Home Secretary, under the terms of the Private Security Industry Act 2001. Our remit covers the United Kingdom.

They have two main duties. One is the compulsory licensing of individuals undertaking designated activities within the private security industry; the other is to manage the voluntary Approved Contractor Scheme, which measures private security suppliers against independently assessed criteria.

SIA licensing covers manned guarding (including security guarding, door supervision, close protection, cash and valuables in transit, and public space surveillance using CCTV), key holding and vehicle immobilising. Licensing ensures that private security operatives are ‘fit and proper’ persons who are properly trained and qualified to do their job.

Their Approved Contractor Scheme introduced a set of operational and performance standards for suppliers of private security services. Those organisations that meet these standards are awarded Approved Contractor status. This accreditation provides purchasers of private security services with independent proof of a contractor’s commitment to quality.

OHSAS 18001 British Standard

OHSAS 18001 is a British Standard, rather than an ISO and is designed to work alongside UK health and safety legislation. Like ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 it is a generic standard that can be applied to businesses of all sizes; it is based on the idea of embedding systems and processes, tailored to any business, that define how health and safety issues are managed across the business.

The standard promotes a safer working environment by heightening adherence to your health and safety policy and procedures at all levels of the organisation. As well as looking after the most valuable asset –employees – BS OHSAS 18001 gives potential clients assurance of effective risk management procedures and full regulatory compliance.
