Top Safety Accreditation for PETROFER UK PLC
Local business PETROFER UK PLC 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.
Employing 13 people, PETROFER UK PLC is principally involved in the industrial sector, specialising in the automotive and general engineering industries.
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 PETROFER UK PLC 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.”
Stuart Gregory, Managing Director of PETROFER UK PLC said “We are delighted that we have been recognised and accredited by SafeContractor for our commitment to health and safety excellence. Having high standards around health and safety policies is vital to all companies, but to a company heavily involved in servicing at clients premises, it’s even more important. Our accreditation with SafeContractor is a testament to our commitment to managing risks and working in the safest possible way”Back
