Safety Accreditations and Certifications


The ISO 9001 Quality Standard is so important to 1Cold that we have invested not only the time and effort to gain accreditation we have also built our management team and our approach around the standard and its principles. This means that every customer benefits from our demands for the highest quality job (whether large or small) and an absolute commitment to exceeding customer expectations, every day. Quality is not just a stamp to 1Cold, it is a way of thinking that determines the way we plan, how we document and ultimately how we work on your project.

Construction Line

1Cold is accredited to the demands of the construction line standard. This allows us to be assessed against very strict health & safety criteria and enables us to be certain of the high standards set by the health & safety systems, every year. This standard is required by most major contractors.


CHAS or the Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme is another externally accredited scheme to determine our compliance with health & safety law and best practice. This standard is an absolute requirement for local authority and NHS tenders.

Safe Contractor

The Safe Contractor Scheme was established to allow everyone allied to the building trade to demonstrate their ability to meet the legal requirements and demonstrate high standards of health & safety management. This is often demanded as a pre-tender requirement, from household names, for all contractors.

Environmental Policy

1Cold is committed to CSCS, so much so that we have the highest level of certification, known as the platinum award. This Construction Skills Certification Scheme is designed to show how active we are in training our employees to ensure their safety on every construction site.
