Avelair awarded Safecontractor accreditation
Avelair has been re-awarded 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 management amongst contractors.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business and to fulfil its requirements for UKAS accredited ISO 9001 with the British Standards Institute. SafeContractor accreditation along with ISO 9001 will enhance Avelair’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 Avelair Compressed Air Solutions has done. 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.”
