Oltco Ltd is one of the latest, successful companies to be accepted in a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record. Oltco recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme that recognises very high standards of health and safety practise amongst UK contractors. One of Oltco’s key products is Etchgrip (a chemical etching treatment). This product is used to make tiles, terrazzo, concrete and stone surfaces anti slip. Clients such as Virgin, Lufthansa, Saga, Amazon, Sony and London midland give huge credibility to this truly unique product.
John Pearce, Director Oltco ltd “Our vision and drive is to deliver a great product and service without compromising safety. This accreditation gives our customers further confidence that the correct safety procedures are put in place”. SAFEcontractor accreditation is expected to enhance a company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety is viewed positively by its insurers. 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".
Under the SAFEcontractor system, businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only, via a website.
