Water Compliance Services strengthens its commitment to Health and Safety with Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation
“Excellence in Health and Safety in the Workplace”
We are delighted to announce that Water Compliance Services has gained further recognition for its commitment to health and safety by being awarded “Excellence in Health and Safety in the Workplace” accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management among contractors. It is recognised by thousands of organisations in the UK, including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Water Compliance Services is committed to health and safety
Established in 2013, Water Compliance Services provides a comprehensive service to businesses, institutions and individuals that have a statutory requirement to provide safely managed water systems to their employees and visitors. The Yorkshire based company has rapidly expanded since its incorporation and its team of assessors operate from sites across the country.
An excellent team
The Excellence in Health and Safety in the Workplace accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor is the latest achievement for the team at Water Compliance Services. The firm has won several key contracts to work with schools, care homes and healthcare facilities, safeguarding the most vulnerable in the country, and has recently won a contract to monitor the water supplies for the University of York.
“In safe hands”
Martin Hillam, Operations Manager at Water Compliance Services, commented, “Our commitment to our Health & Safety policies internally cannot be stressed enough, particularly in the industry we work in. Legionella is a very real risk for so many properties and premises in the UK and we must be as safe and rigorous as possible when working with the water supplies of our customers. Being award this accreditation is something we will wear with pride and lets the businesses we work with know that they’re in safe hands”.
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Water Compliance Services has done.” – Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor
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 Water Compliance Services 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.”
