Selmach Machinery has been awarded Top Safety 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 arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Bill Harris, Service Manager at Selmach Machinery:
“For Selmach Machinery achieving SafeContractor accreditation is a testament to the professionalism of our site engineers, recognising their daily commitment to best practice, and also to the supporting staff in our office who maintain all the paperwork that goes along with compliance.”
Under the SafeContractor scheme, Selmach Machinery have undergone a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and reviews Selmach’s track record for safe practice. Only companies meeting the highest standard are included on this database, which is accessible to registered users only. 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 and to ensure they receive the very best service.
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 Selmach Machinery 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.”
