Fastening technology manufacturing group BeA has announced it has become an accredited SafeContractor member.

The business, which specialises in meeting the needs of the furniture and bed production sector - and is already certified to ISO 9001 standards and by the German TÜV, has recently undergone a rigorous and independent audit process.

The process examines the health and safety procedures and track record of safe practice, with companies meeting the regulations then added to its database accessible to registered client organisations.

SafeContractor has more than 270 major clients and over 24,000 contractor members including Howdens Joinery and Home Retail Group.

John Mercer, managing director, commented on BeA’s accreditation: “As a business, BeA is committed to offering high quality products backed by the highest levels of service and support.

“Our efforts to become an accredited SafeContractor reflect this. We wanted to give customers immediate reassurance of the high levels of health and safety awareness amongst all our team and especially our field based service engineers and technical sales representatives.”
