SBc Contracts registered with Constructionline

Published: Thursday, 31st October 2013


SBc Contracts details are now available on Constructionline, the UK's largest register of pre-qualified construction services.

Constructionline is a Government run scheme.  Each month thousands of contractors and consultants apply for work with the public and private sector organisations.  In order for be awarded the relevant contract, the companies and individuals applying must meet health and safety standards.

To avoid each individual contract having to assess individual suppliers health and safety competence, the Constructionline Scheme has been developed. It streamlines procedures by supplying the construction industry and its clients with a single national pre-qualification scheme.  Upon becoming approved then duplication is reduced as all buyers accept proof of competence.

Since 1977, Constructionline has been developed and refined by Government Health and Safety and Procurement Professionals, with the support of the Health and Safety Executive. Initially the scheme was developed by government bodies, the scheme is now available for use by any public and private sector Organisation as an aid when short listing Contractors, Suppliers and Consultants who apply to work for them.

Constructionline assesses applicants on their health and safety policy statement, their organisation and how it deals with health and safety and their specific health and safety arrangements. This means that everyone will work to an acceptable standard. All members of the Constructionline scheme are stored on a database which is accessible by members only.
