‘Carefully does it’ for ATS Euromaster

ATS Euromaster have become one of the first national tyre specialists to be accredited by SAFEcontractor, an independent organization that assesses the health and safety competency of contractors and service providers.

Many large organizations now use SAFEcontractor as their primary means of selecting suppliers, especially in situations where service providers are visiting their premises to carry out work.

Chris Hufflett, group operations director at ATS Euromaster explained: ‘Clients have a legal obligation to ensure that external contractors and service providers working on their premises operate in a safe way. This means they cannot run the risk of employing firms that are not able to prove they have sound health and safety policies.

‘This is something which is very much top of the agenda within ATS Euromaster, and we felt that offering SAFEcontractor accreditation would help to highlight our rigorous health and safety best practice to both existing and prospective customers.’

The nature of ATS Euromaster’s business, with a 1,000-strong fleet of mobile service vehicles, means that their technicians regularly operate at customers’ sites. This can range from carrying out a fleet check through to fitting new tyres, in environments including company car parks, distribution centres, warehouses or on a site.

ATS Euromaster’s accreditation to SAFEcontractor saw the company undergo an in-depth vetting process, which examined current health and safety procedures and the firm’s track record for safe practice, including policy, risk assessment and first aid. It also checked ATS Euromaster held the relevant public, product and employer’s liability insurance.
