08 Mar Top Safety Accreditation for Imaginators
Imaginators 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 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 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 Imaginators has done – their 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.”
Matt Tydeman, Director or Imaginators said: “We’re immensely proud to have received full SafeContractor accreditation which supports our goal of ensuring everyone within our business understands the importance of health and safety both on-site in the workplace. Our clients demand high standards from all aspects of the services we provide and SafeContractor illustrates to them that we take health and safety seriously and gives our clients reassurance that they are in safe hands.”
Matt Tydeman added “SafeContractor underpins our plans for our OHSAS 18000 and the ISO18001 occupational health and safety standard which further supports our Company policy of ensuring we are accredited with the very highest standards of business management, quality, environmental and health and safety – it is a huge achievement to have been subject to such high levels of scrutiny across all areas of the business only to surpass the rigorous standards to achieve full accreditation.”
