Safety Accreditation for 21 Degrees

21 Degrees is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve it's safety record. We recently received accreditation from SAFEcontractor, a programme which recognises very high standards of health and safety practice amongst UK contractors.

" Achieving SAFEcontractor accreditation confirms our commitment to creating a strong health and safety culture throughout the company" Steve Redhead, Director. 

SAFEcontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to food manufacture, property, facilities management,retail and leisure sectors. As part of the accreditation process businesses undergo a vetting process, which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice.

Darran Hughes; Operations Director of 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. More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that 21 Degrees has done. The firms' high standard has set an example, which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector"    


We were so pleased with their technical ability to meet our special requirements and customer service focus we again reached out to them to support the relocation of our manufacturing operations in Newmarket. They again delivered the project on schedule and met all our expectations.
