Local business AV One Solutions 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.
AV One Solutions is principally involved in the Audio Visual sector, specialising in the Installation and Events industries. AV One’s most recent clients have included major players such as Aker Solutions, Glenfiddich, Halliburton, KCA Deutag, Maersk, Shell and Total.
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 AV One Solutions 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.”
AV One’s Operations Manager, Graeme McGuire, had this to say about achieving the accreditation:
“We are delighted to have achieved this accreditation as it marks an important milestone for us. It enables us to demonstrate to our customers that when we say we’re committed to quality and safety, we mean it. The accreditation reinforces our commitment to protecting the well-being of our employees and our customers’ employees.”
