SpaceVac Achieves Alcumus SafeContractor Certification
SpaceVac is proud to announce that it 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.
A trusted partner for end users and facilities management companies worldwide, SpaceVac Specialist Cleaning – a division of Space Vac Technologies Group – have been providing specialist cleaning services for a number of years to clients across the UK, requiring specialist assistance to clean at height or in hazardous environments.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation enhances 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 SpaceVac 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.”
Meanwhile, Kunal Patel – Managing Director of Space Vac Technologies Group said “From day one, safety has always been at the heart of everything we do. From constantly improving the capabilities of our SpaceVac system to make it safer for operators – to developing the worlds first ATEX certified cleaning system; our commitment to safety is clear. We are very proud that our specialist cleaning division has achieved this certification and look forward to keeping the UK working higher, safer and faster through 2017 and for a long time to come”
