EPS has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business and we believe it will confirm to our existing Clients that we are that safe pair of hands they know us to be as well as enhancing our ability to win new contracts while our commitment to safety will be viewed positively by insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.
Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
Client organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 300 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
