Siteworks team renews SafeContractor Accreditation

The National Grid Metering team passes its annual SafeContractor Accreditation Audit.

The National Grid Metering Siteworks team provides Gas Industry Registered (GIRS) design and project management to deliver new gas infrastructure across the UK. In order to work with leading customers such as British Gas Business and Centrica, the team is required to have the SafeContractor Accreditation. 

For this, the team had to complete three extensive evidence based questionnaires, which asked about everything related to safety, health and environment to insurance certificates and previous project examples. The questionnaires were then audited by Safe Contractor, who eventually awarded the Siteworks team the renewal accreditation. 

James Burke, Project Manager for the Siteworks team said: "Having this accreditation is an essential for our business and our customers. The application process was lengthy and not the easiest thing to pass. Big thank you to the hard work of the team and the assistance of the teams across National Grid Metering who helped us through this process. It means we can reassure our customer that health and safety continue to be at forefront of what we do and a vital step towards growing our business."

The Siteworks team joins the 28,000 other companies that are accredited and recognised on the national SafeContractors database. The accreditation is audited annually.
