To demonstrate their commitment to health and safety, ethical best practices, and sustainable business growth Radiocoms made the long-term decision in 2016 to partner with Alcumus SafeContractor. As a leading third party accreditation scheme Alcumus recognises the extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Employing over 40 people, Radiocoms is principally involved in the design, engineering, and deployment of voice, data, and video communication systems. Specialising in the aviation, public sector, security, and utilities industries, they have a £10.2 million turnover.
The company’s renewal for SafeContractor and SafePQQ accreditation was driven by the need for a continual, uniform standard across the organisation. SafeContractor accreditation enhances the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety is 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 Radiocoms 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.”
Bhupinder Sidhu, Operations Director, added “Maintaining our SafeContractor accreditation is always a priority for Radiocoms. It demonstrates our further ongoing commitment to maintaining excellence in health and safety and upholds our business values for continuous improvement alongside our ISO 45001 accreditation.”
Alcumus SafeContractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.
Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. 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. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 300 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
