Ensuring we offer an excellent customer experience is a key part of what we stand for.
To create a successful working relationship with our clients, the Filta Group has grown to cater for a wide range of commercial customers across the UK. Since starting operations a few years ago, our highly skilled engineers have continued to go above and beyond the expectations of our clients, and as a result we have acquired a number of recognised industry accreditations along the way.
In the fast-paced world we live in, businesses cannot take risks when it comes to choosing a suitable contractor for work within their premises. The Safe Contractor scheme helps organisations select a safe, reliable contractor quickly.
Designed to save engineers valuable time by reducing the number of health and safety questionnaires that need to be completed by clients, becoming Safe Contractor accredited is highly sought-after in the UK.
Originally created as a standardised system for vetting contractors, this scheme uses qualified auditors to review and audit the relevant procedures and documentation relating to health and safety. Once this process has been completed successfully, accredited contractors are permitted to use the Safe Contractor logo to demonstrate to their customers that they have achieved an excellent standard of health and safety compliance.
The Filta Group has also been officially awarded Altius Assured Vendor status. Altius are an industry auditing organisation that work to ensure sourcing quality contractors remains safe, reliable and competitive, and their scheme is used as a Stage 1 Contractor Assessment Regulations 2007 (CDM) approved code of practice.
The purpose of an Altius assessment is to reduce the number of Pre-Qualification Questionnaires (PQQs) a contractor must complete to meet health and safety requirements. Assured Vendors must be able to demonstrate to their clients that they have complied with all health and safety standards set out and then assessed by Altius.
Assured Vendors are able to promote the fact that they have gained suitable accreditation with Altius and they should be regarded as a respected contractor that completes all work to a high standard.
