Detectronic gains top safety accreditation Date: 24/04/23 | In: Press release Wastewater monitoring specialists, Detectronic, have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading 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. Explains Diane Dumon, Operations Director for Detectronic: “Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the ongoing need for a uniform standard across our business. SafeContractor accreditation will further enhance our ability to win new contracts, and our commitment to safety will be viewed positively by insurers when our company liability policy is up for renewal.” Gemma Archibald, Chief Operating Officer of Alcumus SME 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 Detectronic 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.” Concludes Diane: “From securing our reputation and covering compliance to saving time and money by showing our Safe Contractor accreditation rather than completing health & safety paperwork for every client, we can focus on what we do best: designing, installing and maintaining the very best wastewater network monitoring systems for our clients across the globe.” Ends.
