Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by tho
usands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Employing approximately 20 people, Armstrong Bell Ltd is principally involved in the telecommunications sector, specialising in digital and IP telephone systems, hosted voice, business mobile and broadband, with a £2 million turnover. Armstrong Bell’s clients include major players such as Elior UK, EMIS Care, E-Lites and Trust Group Volkswagen.
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 Armstrong Bell 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.”
Robert White, Operations Manager of Armstrong Bell said “Safecontractor, along with our health and safety consultants Southalls have greatly improved our ability to meet our customers’ requirements and ensure our staff are properly protected”
