Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme which recognises rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.
Notably, as part of the initiative, only 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.
Emma Elston MBE, CEO of UKCM, explains: “The stringent evaluation as part of Alcumus SafeContractor audit examines our health and safety procedures and our track record in the area of safe practice. We have been successful in achieving this accreditation annually for a number of years, reaffirming to all our stakeholders our unfailing commitment to 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 UKCM has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. Alcumus 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.”
