Safe Contractor Approved

Darcy is one of the latest group of successful companies to join a leading edge scheme, designed to help industry improve its safety record. Our accreditation from SAFE contractor, recognises our very high standards of health and safety practise.

Our application for SAFE contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across our business. Darran Hughes; Operations Director of SAFE contractor said, "Major organisations can no longer run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies"." More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Darcy has done.

UK Harbour Masters Association

The Harbour Masters’ Association of the United Kingdom, The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man (UKHMA) was formed in May 1993 at an inaugural meeting held at the University of Wales in Cardiff.

The organisation is a professional association of harbour masters. The Association consists of seven regional constituencies, including an active group in Scotland that includes both mainland and island Members.

As a company whose business includes the supply of spill prevention, control and clean up products that relate directly to harbour masters' duties or needs Darcy felt dutybound to become involved with the UKHMA to ensure complete environmental protection.
