RJ Power Group has announced that it has renewed its top safety accreditation SafeContractor.
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.
Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Companies meeting the required high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
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 RJ Power Group 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.”
David Pierce, Director of Business Development for RJ Power Networks said:
“We operate in an extremely competitive market where there is no room for compromise in terms of the standards of health and safety management we deliver.
Possessing an accreditation such as SafeContractor saves not only us, but current and potential clients a lot of time as they can see at a glance that our ways of working have been reviewed in line with a set of rigorous standards.”
Thanks to all that were involved in gathering the evidence for the re-accreditation to take place.
