Seal of approval from leading health and safety scheme

4th February 2023

We are pleased to announce that we have successfully renewed our SafeContractor accreditation for another year.

Health and safety is a priority across all employment industries, especially in the construction sector where heavy equipment, unstable structures and hazardous airborne materials are prevalent.

SafeContractor is one of the leading health and safety assessment schemes in the UK and, with this accreditation, we can assure our customers of our health and safety competency. We are very pleased to have achieved this award and are keen to maintain and build on this success moving forward.

Plastic Surgeon’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

With the Alcumus SafeSupplier sustainability verification Badge, Plastic Surgeon is able to prove our commitment to the industry, putting safety and sustainability first , proving our due diligence in meeting compliance standards. We are committed to quality practices and processes and this gives our customers confidence with our commitment to quality practices and processes.

At Plastic Surgeon, health and safety is embedded in the business’ day-to-day operations and is at the forefront of its everyday processes for staff. With an overarching health and safety scheme, the Devon-based firm has recently introduced its own bespoke training department to ensure that recruited finishers have the appropriate qualifications required to safely work in potentially hazardous environments.


Training includes regular Tool Box Talks, which ensures staff are engaged with relevant and up-to-the minute health and safety issues. In addition, the company has introduced a new online COSHH Assessment App, enabling instant access to all current assessments to illustrate potential hazards and emergency procedures on ongoing projects.


The company is always looking at how it can incorporate technology to further enhance its health and safety policies. It’s Workplace IT System includes the latest health and safety information and training collateral, as well as being able to record issues and accidents. These reports can then be used to forecast issues, allowing the company to review controls and swiftly put preventative measures in place.

Ultimately, by using innovative technology to empower those working in construction with the knowledge and understanding of the hazards they face, it provides them with the tools and confidence to work safely in varying degrees of at-risk environments.
