SafeHire

The SafeHire Certification Scheme was launched in 2000 and has been developed with the guidance of safety and quality agencies, including the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In 2010 SafeHire was endorsed by the British Standards Institute (BSi) as a Private Standard.

Members achieving SafeHire Certification will:

  • prove competence in safety, health, environment  and quality
  • meet client demands for high standards of service
  • demonstrate a well trained workforce to support customers
  • increase revenue generation
