Quadratek is delighted to SHOUT that we have been awarded GOLD SafePQQ verification from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace and demonstrating our continuing corporate social responsibility, and our commitment to being an ethical and sustainable company and minimising our environmental impact; extending our SafeContractor certification aligning with the requirements of PAS91.
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 like Quadratek as well as larger companies.
Our application for the SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across our company backing-up our ISO 45001:2018 accreditation, CHAS accreditation, RoSPA membership and RoSPA Silver award. The SafeContractor accreditation continues to enhance our ability to tender for new contracts and demonstrates our commitment to safety which is viewed positively by our customers and staff.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor says: “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 Quadratek has achieved. The company’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.”
