We are pleased to share with you that Sign A Rama Toronto is one of a very few sign companies in the Greater Toronto Area that is ContractorCheck accredited. In our history, we are proud to report that we haven’t had a recordable accident or Worker’s Compensation claim. It’s one of our proudest accomplishment because we value the safety of our employees and our customers’ staff and their property.

What it means for our customers like the big property management companies, the retail malls and the everyday retailer is that we are well insured and are very committed to safe manufacturing and installation practices. It gives them peace of mind and a worry-free experience.

Our customers like Triovest, Oxford, CBRE and Colliers make it mandatory to have these certificates because they realize the cost of unsafe practices and they also realize the importance of their own staff safety.

What is Contractor check accreditation?

ContractorCheck is an independent, third party health and safety pre-qualification accreditation program for 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. It’s an ongoing process by Contractor Check to make sure companies performing their type of work are safe and carry appropriate liability insurance. Every assessment is assessed and/or accredited by an experienced CRSP (Canadian Registered Safety Professional).

The Assessor’s role is more than just to review. Assessors gather evidence to determine if the contractors program 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 licenses. 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.
