Business Sector

Priority 1 work with organisations which aim to be assured of the health and safety standards of their contractors, and working with contractors wishing to improve their health and safety management systems.

Priority 1 can provide information and assistance in regard to the health and safety issues which need to be considered by companies when working with contractors. We can help in ensuring that only contractors with the correct insurance, proper risk controls and intention to work in a safe manner are being awarded contracts or being allowed to work with your clients. In order to assess contractors suitability, we will engage them in a qualification process when they will be required to answer questions and provide evidence of experience, accident investigation, risk assessment, training and structures to ensure safe working methods.

We also work with many contractors and sub-contractors who are striving to meet the desired standards of health and safety control. Priority 1 work to assist contractors of all sizes to prepare policy statements, devise procedural systems, risk assess their activities, and help with all other aspects of developing a robust and widely accepted health and safety management system.
We currently work with contractors from a wide range of disciplines including including electrical contractors, fire and security system installers, maintenance organisations and companies providing hygiene services.
