Award-winning accreditation scheme Alcumus SafeContractor has recently launched a new system to further improve safety at work, having conducted in-depth research and engagement with its membership base.
The health and safety assessment service is used by over 30,000 contractors in the UK. While it’s one of the most credible assessment standards in the country, the scheme has implemented a new system to ensure that organisations of all sizes meet legal requirements and improve health and safety practices in workplaces across the country.
The Launch of a Significant Investment
SafeContractor is already regarded as one of the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation schemes, however the business has introduced a new system to provide contractors with a more efficient and simplified way to achieve accreditation.
Contractors look to gain this sought-after accreditation and the launch of this significant investment, which features four attractive membership packages, enables them to do so in a straightforward fashion.
The packages have been created to provide contractors with a more user-friendly and dynamic assessment system, offering various benefits such as quick accreditation, and one-to-one support through the process. This new system eliminates the challenges that contractors can face when providing and maintaining up to date health and safety documentation.
An Improved System Offering
While Alcumus SafeContractor is supported by a wealth of major clients and contractors, the health and safety assessment service continually strives to add value to businesses by ensuring contractors are legally compliant in health and safety.
Gemma Archibald, Alcumus SafeContractor Director says:
“We need to stay ahead of the game and add value to our service offering. After consulting with our members, we are now replacing the existing single method to achieve accreditation with four distinct membership packages which have all been carefully designed with levels of speed and support required for the contractor. This support is provided by our team of in-house technical experts”.
“The world of compliance is constantly evolving and can be difficult to navigate, especially for contractors who may not be tuned into the industry on a daily basis. Providing contractors with a service that enables them to achieve this vital accreditation as simply as possible is key to supporting our UK businesses to operate safely”.
“The implications of getting health and safety wrong can be catastrophic to both contractors and their customers, by achieving accreditation contractors can be assured that they are doing all that they can to demonstrate they are operating safely on site, and are compliant with the very latest legislation.”
Safety at work is a high priority for UK organisations, and this new system from Alcumus SafeContractor offers companies a streamlined process – so members can demonstrate their legal compliance in a short timeframe, with the assistance they need along the way.
