Local business Adept GRP 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.
Employing local people, Adept GRP Ltd is principally involved in the Manufacture, Supply and Installation of GRP Enclosures and GRP Cabinets, specialising in the Electrical and Water industries, with continued growth year on year. Adepts most recent clients have included the supply of GRP Kiosks to major players such as Western Power Distribution, EE amongst many others.
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 Adept GRP Enclosures 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.”
Adepts Dan Phillips echoed the positive sentiments adding “We’re naturally pleased to have been awarded our Safety Accreditation for another year, the importance of Safety both on and off Site is of paramount importance to us and something we continually strive to improve”
