Major Safety Accreditation for Concrete Drilling Services
Local business Concrete Drilling Services Limited has achieved accreditation from the Alcumus SafeContractor scheme; this was gained due to the recognition of superb health and safety levels in their workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a well-regarded third party accreditation scheme which ensures that contractors maintain rigorous, high standard health and safety management. Due to the quality safety auditing Alcumus SafeContractor provides, thousands of companies and organisations in the UK, from SMEs to FTSE 100 companies, use it.
Employing 42 people, Concrete Drilling Services Limited is principally involved in the Construction industry, specialising in the commercial, retail, health, education, MOD and residential sectors. Concrete Drilling Services Limited’s most recent clients include major players such as Laing O’Rourke, Wates Construction, Balfour Beatty Construction Ltd, BAM, Eric Wright Construction, Cruden and Galliford Try.
Concrete Drilling Services Limited applied for SafeContractor accreditation due to the fact a standardised system is needed across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will help to drive the winning of new contracts for the company. In addition, the commitment to maintaining strong safety standards will be beneficial in the eyes of insurers when renewing the company liability policy.
Gemma Archibald, the 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.”
She highlighted that, “more companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Concrete Drilling Services Limited has done.” The company was also specifically praised for its high standards of safety which could be used as an example to others within the sector. Archibald went on to emphasise the important role that SafeContractor plays for contractors whilst they are progressing through the process of accreditation.
Steven Horrocks, Director of Concrete Drilling Services Ltd, commented that this latest accreditation with Alcumus SafeContractor is a valuable addition to the other accreditations the company has already earned; he is certain it will be beneficial and enhance the company’s status in winning future work.
