Press Release 16th November 2011

Top Safety Accreditation for PuriFry Fryer Management Service

PuriFry is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record.

 

SAFEcontractorPuriFry recently received accreditation for its company owned operation from SAFEcontractor,  which will now be rolled out to their Franchise network, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors.

Expanding as a Franchise network PuriFry is principally involved in Fryer Management, reducing caterers operating costs and improving cleanliness and Health & Safety through onsite filtration and cleaning of their deep fat fryers.

The company’s application for SAFEcontractor accreditation was driven by their policy of meeting and exceeding the highest possible standards in Health & Safety in their Franchise networks daily operations.

Carey Baxter, Managing Director of PuriFry, commented “At PuriFry our policies and practices ensure the safest work environment for both our Franchisees and Customers, and the recent accreditation by SAFEcontractor demonstrates our on-going commitment to meeting and exceeding the highest of standards and customer expectations in this area.”

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.

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 PuriFry 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.
