North East commercial heating specialists Enright Environmental have recently been awarded health and safety 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.
Enright Environmental is principally involved in the building services engineering sector, specialising in the commercial heating and ventilation industry. Enright Environmental’s most recent clients have included major players in the North East such as the British Engines (BEL) Group, Nicholsons Sealing Technologies, UK Land Estates and Knight Frank.
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 Enright Environmental 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.”
Engineer and Health and Safety coordinator Adrian Mills of Enright Environmental said: “SafeContractor accreditation is an important step forward for Enright Environmental as it is an outward indication to our client base of our commitment to health and safety. It enables us to deliver a first class service efficiently and above all safely.”
