How Alcumus SafeContractor can help construction organisations

Health & safety compliance

Although construction is vital for progress, it carries substantial health and safety risks. As an organisation, you’re tasked not only with ensuring a safe and healthy work environment but also with providing training, identifying risks, and regularly reviewing contractor compliance and safety policies. 

Supply chain compliance and visibility

Supply chain compliance and visibility are essential for meeting regulatory requirements, mitigating risks, upholding ethical standards, and improving efficiency with organisations. Real-time monitoring of contractor compliance and the ability to identify potential risks are indispensable. 

Improving supply chain sustainability

As environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance gains more importance at the board level, construction companies need to update their supply chain management and reporting abilities, as well as their procurement processes, to demonstrate their commitment to these priorities. 

Our approach to construction contractor management

Our proportionate stance

At SafeContractor, we understand the unique challenges faced by small contractors, which is why we take a proportionate approach to our assessments. Our evaluation process is scaled to fit the size and complexity of each contractor’s business, ensuring it’s both fair and manageable. Despite this tailored approach, we maintain rigorous standards to ensure all contractors are compliant and competent to undertake work.

Our accreditation

Our SafeContractor accreditation pre-qualification question set aligns with the Common Assessment standard (CAS) and our certification aids in CDM compliance. Covering quality management, environmental practices, health and safety, and social responsibility, these standards enhance reputation, build stakeholder trust, improve efficiency, mitigate risks, and boost competitiveness.

Our people first approach

At SafeContractor, we have the UK’s largest in-house team of dedicated technical experts, which allows us to take a proportionate approach to assessments, tailoring our evaluation process to fit each contractor’s size and complexity. With over 90% of suppliers onboarded and a dedicated team, we provide a thorough accreditation process, ensuring confidence in your supply chain.
