Top Safety Accreditation for Warren AccessJune 25, 2019
We’re proud to announce that we have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme which 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.
With our two depots, in Newcastle and Huntingdon, we’re principally involved in the work at height industry. Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation enhances our ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by our clients, stakeholders, and the industry generally.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: "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 Warren Access 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.”
It's great news for us, with our Director, Graeme Warren stating "We’re delighted to have achieved this accreditation for another 12 months. We put a strong focus on safety, and it's wonderful to have all our hard work recognised by Alcumus SafeContractor".
