Alcumus SafeContractor are proud to support the NHS, as well as other critical industries, with access to their 33,000 accredited members. This will also help SafeContractor approved contractors and suppliers to develop incremental trade in challenging economical times. By using SafeContractor, organisations can have confidence in their supply chain sourcing, ensuring that they have access to suppliers and contractors in high demand services and geographies, so they can continue to operate effectively.
Finding and assessing the right people for the job can be a huge admin burden. The SafeContractor portal will allow the NHS to quickly and easily source new contractors and suppliers with the peace of mind that they are compliant with the law and working to the highest standards.
Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of SafeContractor commented:
“These are unprecedented times, and we are extremely proud to be asked to support the NHS. Whilst businesses will come under increased pressure, we expect Health and Safety and Quality Management to remain a key consideration in both sourcing and managing supply chains. We are working tirelessly through these challenging times to do our bit to keep the economy going by connecting suppliers and contractors with organisations that need them.
