Local business Advetec Holdings Limited has been 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 company’s 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 Advetec 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.”
Richard Goff, Chief Operations Officer at Advetec said: “We are always looking to improve our business, embrace innovation and seek opportunities to work more effectively. Health and Safety is critical to this development, as the company grows quickly and safely. This accreditation attests to our ambition to excel in all areas of the business.”
The company, which is a leader in the use of extremophile bacteria for digesting solid and liquid organic waste, recently launched its next generation the Advetec XO system, a high temperature in vessel solution for digesting organic content in difficult to handle mixed solid wastes and waste sludge.
