Iconsys attains SafeContractor Accreditation

18.1.2017

Iconsys are pleased to have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health & safety in the workforce.

As a company our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniformed standard across the business, and our SafeContractor accreditation shows our overwhelming commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our staff and visitors to our workplace.

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health & safety management amongst contractors.  It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

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 Iconsys 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.”

Don Perkin, Quality Manager with Iconsys noted that “Health & Safety is our number one priority and the appointment of Alcumus SafeContractor reassures all our clients that we take this matter seriously and is being handled correctly.” “Our accreditation, has been well received and supported by key personnel within the company.”
