Eclipse Magnetics Awarded Top Safety Accreditation By Safecontractor

Eclipse Magnetics 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.

High Performance Magnetic Systems

With over 100 years of experience in the design and manufacture of high performance magnetic systems, Eclipse supply critical equipment to some of the leading names in manufacturing and processing industries.

The accreditation is particularly important for Eclipse Magnetics’ technical engineers dealing with large projects in the energy sector, where our team provide site surveys and material sampling services, typically carried out in busy processing environments where health and safety for employees is a prime consideration.

Managing Director at Eclipse Magnetics, John Dargavel said: “Safecontractor status is a great achievement for Eclipse Magnetics. We are extremely proud to have been accredited; it reflects our commitment to specific health and safety arrangements, and our dedication to achieving high, uniform standards across the business.”

Sound Health and Safety Policies

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 Eclipse Magnetics 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.”

Track Record for Safe Practice

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.
