We ensure adequate resources and our competent personnel, are available to effectively manage and monitor the safety arrangements within the entire framework of our business for the purpose of continuous improvement."
Darran Hughes; Operations Director of SAFEcontractor said:
"Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health an safety policies.
More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Prism Power has done. The firms' high standard has set an example, which hopefully will by followed by other companies within the sector".
