The Rotter on the SAFEcontractor scheme

Les Meikle, aka The Rotter and Managing Director of Wise Knotweed Solutions and Wise Property Care stated: "the care and protection of our teams on site is very important to us. With the recent surge in rogue traders bringing a bad name to the construction and preservation industry, any scheme that strives to help protect contractors and homeowners and demonstrate good practise in the industry is certainly a scheme we want to help and support."

The SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to 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, Head of Risk at SAFEcontractor said, "Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies".

"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Wise Knotweed Solutions and Wise Property Care has done. The firm's high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector".
