AFI has been awarded the SafeHire certification quality mark, which is operated by Hire Association Europe (HAE) for the hire and rental industry.
To achieve the certification, AFI underwent a series of rigorous inspections to confirm that its operations meet stringent safety and quality criteria.
Brian Parker, AFI business development manager, technical support, said, “This is excellent news for AFI. It demonstrates that we have the necessary robust internal procedures in place backed up by documentation. This ensures we are not only meeting but exceeding the highest standard necessary for our clients.”
“Achieving SafeHire also means that we are now approved under the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS). This will make it easier for us to apply for work within public and private sector organisations – being CHAS approved reduces duplication as suppliers compliance is accepted by all CHAS buyers,” he added.
