Linkens most recent clients haveincluded clients from all over the Midlands areas.The company’s application for Safecontractor accreditation was driven by the need for auniform standard across the business.Managing Director, John O’Connor, quoted, ‘Our objective is to provide all our clients with acomprehensive, problem-solving drainage solution. Our clients range from homeowners toinsurance companies and with the accreditation behind us, it strengthens and our position inthe market as a trustworthy company to deal with’.Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts andits commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liabilitypolicy is up for renewal.Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to foodmanufacture, property, facilities management, retail and leisure sectors, all of which are bigusers of contracted services.John Kinge, technical director of Safecontractor said, "Major organisations simply cannotafford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they havesound health and safety policies in place.""More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management inthe way that Linken Services has done.
