Octink, a specialist in signage, marketing suites and site safety solutions for the commercial and residential property sectors, has been awarded the BuildingConfidence accreditation by Achilles in recognition of its continuous efforts to create safe environments in and around construction sites. Awarded in November, this accreditation is Octink's fourth within the overall Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) initiative.
The Achilles BuildingConfidence standard, launched in 2007, is a rigorous accreditation process that aims to meet the demanding legislative and risk management needs of construction clients. The audit process assesses a company's competence and compliance in line with the relevant audit protocol and identifies areas in which the business can improve and reduce potential risks.
Mike Freely, Managing Director of Octink, says: "Health and safety is always at the heart of Octink's work, whether we're delivering a property marketing suite or helping a client to improve construction site safety compliance. We're committed to creating safe environments, so obviously we're very proud to have been accredited by a fourth SSIP accreditation scheme. Alone, each of these accreditations demonstrates our high levels of health and safety, but together we believe that they show how committed we are to building a safety industry. "
In addition to its BuildingConfidence accreditation, Octink also has accreditations from SMAS Worksafe, SAFEcontractor and Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), all of which are members of the SSIP Forum.
