SafeContractor for another year

Kenburn is delighted to announce that having first joined the SafeContractor scheme in 2009, they have having passed the annual audit in January 2017 and awarded accreditation for another twelve months.

SafeContractor Accreditation StickerAlcumus Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Gail Foxcroft, Director of Kenburn commented “We first attained our SafeContractor accreditation in 2009 and are pleased to have been accredited for yet another year, demonstrating our positive commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.”

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 Kenburn Waste Management 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.”

As a third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors, many major clients recognise SafeContractor and accept the certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice. Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation. Over 300 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
