Safety Management Advisory Services

Barton have subscribed to SMAS to provide accreditation for their health and safety management systems. This ensures that their system remains part of a nationally recognized certification scheme by means of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement). This is a tangible assurance that our health and safety systems are in compliance with recognized nationally accepted standards and adopt industry best practices.

As a recognised Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) scheme, a SMAS Worksafe certificate is recognised by all other SSIP members.

Many clients will only use contractors and consultants like Barton who are approved and have demonstrated the appropriate level of competence in their H&S management systems and they look to SMAS and the SSIP systems as reassurance that they meets the stringent criteria set by the CDM Regulations 2007.

Waste and Resources Action Programme

Barton are a registered producer of aggregates to the WRAP protocol which is a government sponsored initiative put in place to drive recycling, reuse and recovery of waste materials including construction waste. The above protocol is a specification designed to improve quality and traceability and to give accreditation to those who work to this protocol.

Many government funded projects in particular will have a requirement for high content recycled materials and that such are produced using the protocol. Customers can therefore be confident that aggregates produced to this protocol are at least as good as virgin aggregates in terms of compliance to standards such as Specifications for Highways Works (SHW).
