Forbes are proud to announce their recently 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
Forbes’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 Forbes 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.”
