Like many companies, we are always looking to continuously improve. Gaining accreditations for wider areas of the construction industry not only helps us on this journey but also gives our customers further support and knowledge on their worksite.

Safety is of paramount importance throughout our industry and this is clearly reflected with our FORS certified accreditation. All our depots are Safehire accredited through the Hire
Association of Europe. Furthermore, we are also a Safe Contractor and Safety in Procurement qualified company.

All our depots go through a rigorous internal quarterly audit and we would welcome the chance to talk you through our process.

Carrying RISQS accreditation enables us to support trackside for the huge volume of rail infrastructure works over the next decade and beyond.

Of course, being recognised by our peers and those outside our sector for our growth, stability and company culture is always rewarding. We have won a number of awards that recognises the huge team effort from all our staff which confirms we are the number one choice for many customers within the industry.


Customer and operational safety are of paramount importance to us. We are committed to delivering service excellence in all its forms. By being members of construction trade bodies, it enables us to ensure conformity that not only satisfies ourselves but is a proven yard-stick from outside of our business too. We work closely with Hire Association Europe, our industry trade institution, planning various types of regulatory audits that are needed to pass their required levels of membership.


Bronze accreditation confirms that we employ good practice and comply with the requirements laid out by the FORS Standard. This includes demonstrating dedication to driver and vehicle safety, combined with improving operating practices through effective monitoring of fuel and tyre usage.

Achieving SafeHire Certification is dependent upon successful assessment, and unlike other quality standards, onsite verification of members’ policies and management systems which include Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Health, Safety and Welfare, Occupational Health, Environment and Sustainability, Quality Business Risk, Insurance and Financial Control, Document Control and Data Protection and HR and Employment Law compliance.


The SafeContractor scheme is a SSIP-approved health and safety assessment scheme for contractors who want to demonstrate that they’re taking responsibility for their legal health and safety requirements.


SafePQQ is an extension of the SafeContractor health and safety accreditation scheme. It goes beyond health and safety to increase the visibility of our compliance and covers CSR topics such as finance, environmental, quality, equality, anti-bribery and GDPR.
