Baydale Control Systems Limited has once again been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading accreditation scheme which 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 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, Divisional CEO of Alcumus Supply Chain Division 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 Baydale 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, Neil Pentland said: ‘We are fully committed to the health, safety and welfare of all employees, visitors and others that may be affected by our day-to-day operations. SafeContractor further endorses our commitment to driving a positive health and safety culture at all levels within the business ensuring we provide a safe working environment and safe working practices.
