Alcumus SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation company, today announced that it has been selected by Homyze to underpin its growth with a solid health and safety foundation.
As Homyze moves into the next phase of growth with national expansion, they were seeking a partner to continually improve health and safety standards, whilst getting to market faster, more efficiently and more economically than before.
Construction sites are busy and complex workplaces where workers face many hazards. The HSE estimate there were 79,000 work-related ill health cases for the construction industry in 2018/191. Many of these are down to unsafe work practices which can be avoided with the correct education and precautions.
“In facilities management and property maintenance, reputation is key. We may have a superior technology platform and the best service in the industry but without a first-rate health and safety framework this means very little. We have used SSIP providers before, but for us, SafeContractor is the gold standard,” said Adam Edgell-Bush, CEO at Homyze. “We are always looking to continually improve our business and SafeContractor offered a much more robust and user-friendly contractor management system than other providers.”
“With SafeContractor we can now source contractors from their 33,000 members to fuel our national expansion. But just as important, they provide our existing contractors the means to improve and grow their businesses too.”
Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “As the latest HSE statistics suggest, appropriate health and safety vetting of your supply chain is essential to minimise the risks to individuals and your business.”
“We’re thrilled that Homyze has joined a growing number of property and construction companies choosing SafeContractor, the latter increasing 31% year-on-year. More than 400 organisations have selected SafeContractor to become safer, healthier and stronger.”
“SafeContractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, and the need to leverage supplier capabilities in this manner is increasingly recognised as a key driver of competitive advantage.”
