The company’s application for Safe Contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. Safe Contractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus Safe Contractor 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 ABSEN ROPE ACCESS SPECIALISTS LTD has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. Safe Contractor 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.”
ABSEN are happy once again to have achieved Safe Contractor status. We hope this confirms to all our clients that we are committed to maintaining the high level of safety and management which is confirmed by the requirements of Alcumus Safe Contractor and that we will continue to do so into the future.
