Footprints Security are members of ContractorCheck which is for the third party health and safety pre-qualification accreditation program that assesses the health and safety management systems of contractors.
The program is designed to give our clients in commercial property, educational facilities, hospitals and retail comfort knowing that any ContractorCheck Accredited contractor they engage with has demonstrated that they have a safety program that satisfies federal and provincial legislation, as well as client specific requirements. Every assessment is assessed and/or accredited by an experienced CRSP (Canadian Registered Safety Professional).
Assessors at ContractorCheck ensures Footprints Security meets legislative requirements and is appropriate for the work they do. Rather than simply obtaining the program, policies and procedures are reviewed, along with various forms, reports, training records and licences. The Assessor is looking for evidence that the contractor is doing what they say they do. An interactive dialogue with the contractor to discuss requirements to complete the assessment, such as providing advice or templates, is an ongoing process and is required until Accreditation is achieved.
