Becoming accredited demonstrates to potential clients that you take risk assessments very seriously and understand the importance of adopting comprehensive risk management. The accreditation helps prove you are following the correct guidelines that have been set out within this certification. Furthermore, the scheme enables time-saving when filling out the pre-qualification questionnaires (PPQs) on behalf of your clients.

Similar to the CHAS scheme, there are many benefits to a business in becoming Alcumus Safe Contractor approved. For example, large organisations cannot afford to run the risk of working with companies within the sector that have not adopted trusted risk management. More companies will most likely now want to engage your services as a demonstrated trusted brand.

As a SafeContractor approved company, your business registers itself in the SafeContractor database. You will then become recognised as a safety consulting business. The database is used extensively by large private and public sector organisations. This exposure will undoubtedly enhance your business and generate new opportunities for work. The certification will enable you to tender for the larger tenders that you wouldn’t have been able to beforehand.

Achieving Safe Contractor accreditation status means you are approved to use the safe contractor approved logo and stickers. You can use these on your website, social media, vehicles and overall marketing collateral. They demonstrate your commitment to sound health and safety procedures.

How do I become a SafeContractor accredited and what do I need to do?

Firstly, you must go through the accreditation process and fill out an application. There are things you will need, such as your current Health and Safety Policy, Health and Safety Procedures, First Aid Provisions, Health and Safety Management training documents to name a few. These will support the application process. After that, and once the application has been completed in full, the method for approval begins.
