Local business Fastline Services Ltd has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus Safe Contractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus Safe Contractor 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. Fastline Service Ltd is principally involved in Safety Sytems and Line Marking, specialising in the Manufacturing, Logistics and Distribution industries.
The company’s application for Safe Contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. Safe Contractor 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 Safe Contractor 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 Fastline Services Ltd has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. Safe Contractor 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.”
Adam Fleming, MD, Fastline Services added:"Fastline Services Ltd is delighted to receive the Safe Contractor accreditation. It demonstrates our commitment to safety. As a young but rapidly growing business, we realise the importance of operating to the highest standards from the start. By early implementation of quality practices, which usually comes much later in a life of a company, they become the fabric of our core values and working practices."
