Top Safety Accreditation for KCP

We are proud to announce that we have 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 by assessing their H&S arrangements and policies. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies. 

As an SME, we are principally involved in the Industrial Maintenace sector, specialising in the Landfill, Anaerobic Digestion, Nuclear, Food & Drink and Farming industries. Our most recent clients have included major players such as Suez, FCC Environment and Kelda Organic Energy.

The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across a major clients 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 KCP 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.” 

Our Managing Director, Wendy added “Our commitment to provide our clients with robust and practical health and safety solutions is critical to our continued growth. Our commitment to our clients is to ensure that we provide transparent processes and are pleased to be able to add SafeContractor to our suite of health and safety accreditations including Achilles, CHAS and SMAS.”
