Local business Cam Fork Lift Trucks Ltd 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 CAM 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.”
Paul Freeman, Director of Cam Fork Lift Trucks Ltd commented upon receiving accreditation: “As our business continues to grow so do the requirements of our customers, regardless of size, one truck or fifty trucks, racking installations or racking inspection and repair the need for specific site compliance is ever more demanding.”
“We believe going through the process of becoming an accredited SafeContractor clearly demonstrates that Cam Fork Lift Trucks Ltd are committed to the safety of our employees and customers alike, and that Health & Safety is at the forefront of our business model.”
