Specialist Contractor, Cawarden, has been awarded Alcumus SafeContractor Accreditation and SafePQQ Verification for the 7th year in a row for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme that recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.
SafeContractor accreditation has enhanced the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety is viewed positively by insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.
More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Cawarden has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
