Most of the time our customers just assume we can work miracles. And, when their ovens go on strike in the middle of a busy function, our engineers can, and have, produced some pretty miraculous results. But we don’t shout about it. Fixing and servicing Rational ovens is what we do.
But last week we had some news that does warrant, not just a blow of our trumpet, but a full-on fanfare. We have just heard that AC Services (Southern) has been awarded accreditation to Safecontractor for the high standard of health and safety provision maintained across all our contracts.
Safecontractor is an accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety competency of contractors and service providers and is used by many of the UK’s blue chip organisations to pre-qualify their suppliers. It means that our customers and potential customers will now have the added reassurance that our health and safety practices have been independently verified and approved.
We spend a lot of our time repairing, servicing and maintaining Rational ovens in kitchens of every kind, and whether it’s in a prison, a pub or a Michelin Star restaurant, health and safety always comes first. We are very focused on this area and aware of our responsibilities but it’s something that we have to prove every time we talk to a new customer, especially in the public sector or in large hotel groups. Safecontractor accreditation will give these customers the reassurance they need.
We believe that, of all the health and safety accreditation bodies, Safecontractor sets the highest standards and is one of the most respected. We had to undergo an extensive vetting process to achieve this accreditation, not just of our procedures but of our track record too. But it now means that new and existing customers can be sure that we meet, or exceed, the best standards and best practice possible.
