processLBBC’s Boilerclave® continues to lead the industry for autoclave dewaxing whilst the Core Leaching Autoclave remains the benchmark in efficient, safe and consistent ceramic core removal from investment castings.

2016 August – Safecontractor accreditation for LBBC Technologies

 

LBBC Technologies specialises in industrial autoclave systems and pressure containment hatches incorporating the revolutionary Quicklock® door. With over 70% of equipment being for export, the company is recognised globally for its expertise in pressure containment and allied high level safety systems.

 

Howard Pickard, Managing Director said “We are very pleased to have achieved this certification as we have now been officially recognised for our high safety standards and dedication to providing market leading products and services. We intend to continue to work hard to maintain this certification and endeavour to achieve further accreditations relevant to the advanced engineering sectors we supply.”

 

Safecontractor accreditation will 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, technical director of Safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.”

 

“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that LBBC Technologies has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.

 

Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

 

Under the Safecontractor scheme, 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.

 

Client-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 clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

 

Over 210 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.

LBBC Technologies has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

 

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
