Full Accreditation for Ion Energy Ltd  

Ion Energy Ltd is one of the latest groups of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record.
The Ipswich based firm recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme that recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors.
The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
“Ion Energy Ltd is pleased to have SAFEcontractor accreditation and membership. As a company we have always strived to implement and maintain the highest standards of Health and Safety. Having SAFEcontractor status demonstrates that we are strongly committed to a to a business policy that has very positive Health and Safety outcomes not only to the company and staff but also equally importantly our customers.”
 --- Michael Calver MD Ion Energy Ltd
SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
SAFEcontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are big users of contract services.
John Kinge, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said, "Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies".
"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Ion Energy Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector".
Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website, www.safecontractor.com
Employer-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These employers agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
 Over one hundred and fifty major nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
