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.

All of our employees are principally involved in the Signmaking sector, specialising in a range of materials for a wide variety of industries. Our most recent clients have included major players such as Babcock, Mitie and Greencore.

Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. We hope that SafeContractor accreditation will enhance our ability to win new contracts, and that our commitment to safety will be viewed positively.

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 FASTSIGNS 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.”
