The SafeContractor scheme demonstrates to buyers that member organisations have undergone a full health and safety audit and demonstrated that health and safety is being handled correctly and sufficiently on their sites.
Our internal quality systems ensure that all accreditations and memberships are maintained and kept up to date – just as we help our clients to ensure that theirs are as well.
ISO 9001:2015 AWARDED BY APPROACHABLE CERTIFICATION

Constructionline is the UK's leading procurement and supply chain management service that collects, assesses and monitors standard company information through a question set that is aligned to PAS 91, the standardised pre-qualification questionnaire developed by BSI to reduce duplication within the construction industry.
WaterSafe is a national accreditation body which checks and approves businesses and their plumbers to give customers reassurance about the tradesmen undertaking work for them.Hiring a WaterSafe approved plumber ensures that all plumbing work meets high standards and protects the quality of drinking water in homes and businesses.
British Standard Code of Practice: BS 8580-2
BS 8580-2 is a British Standard Code of Practice pertaining to risk assessments for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other waterborne pathogens. The risk assessment guidance applies primarily in healthcare provisions, including hospitals, and care, nursing and residential homes. It applies to other settings where water systems and associated equipment can pose a risk, including education, travel, industrial, leisure and beauty sectors.
At Aquatrust, all our staff have had additional training to ensure we follow all standards set out by the code of practice. This means that we understand and can manage the water safety risks in areas where Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a concern.
