Local business Realm Fire & Security has 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 that 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.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor 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 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 Realm Fire & Security 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.”
Managing Director, Stephen Booth said:
“Realm Fire & Security Ltd is delighted to have renewed their Safe Contractor accreditation for 2021, having successfully completed a recertification audit through Alcumus. We would like to thank our Quality, Implementation & Reliability Engineer, Reza, for his hard work in keeping us compliant with this scheme. SafeContractor is one of Realm’s growing portfolio of quality assurance accreditations that give our customers confidence to use us as their principal provider for all their fire & security needs.”
