Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors.
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 Excel Vending 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.”
Speaking about the award, Excel’s operations director, John MacDonald said, “We are delighted to have been awarded this accreditation. Achieving the highest possible standards in health and safety is very important to us, and to the clients we work with. However, this is not simply another accreditation, it is about the adoption of a culture of safe working practice throughout the company and the award is recognition of the importance we place on adopting sound policies.”
