Strathclyde Heating and Utilities Ltd join SafeContractor to enhance their reputation for health and safety excellence by gaining our UK-leading accreditation.

Strathclyde Heating and Utilities Ltd are a multi-trade solution company based in the heart of Scotland.

 “We offer a high-quality contractor service and strive to deliver 100% customer satisfaction on every job we undertake. We work closely with our customers to ensure that our fully qualified team deliver competitively priced and professional services to every project.” commented Andrew Heffernan, Managing Director at Strathclyde Heating and Utilities Ltd.

“As a company that prides itself on customer satisfaction and the quality of our workmanship, independent assessment and third-party accreditations are very important to us. Joining SafeContractor has enabled us to demonstrate a uniform standard of health and safety compliance and excellent standards across our business to clients now, and as we continue to grow. This has enhanced our ability to win new contracts with clients who want to work with compliant contractors.”

SafeContractor, the UK’s leading health and safety accreditation, verifies an organisation’s health and safety compliance and connects contractors to leading organisations through an online portal. This showcases their profile to hundreds of companies that only work with our 33,000 SafeContractor members, saves time and money when bidding on new tenders and gives them the peace of mind that their health and safety practices are complaint with the law.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: "No-one goes to work to get injured. 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.”

“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. During the current economic impact of COVID-19 its more important than ever that contractors enhance their reputation and win work by continuing to demonstrate their commitment to delivering the highest standards of health and safety compliance.”

Commenting on the current climate surrounding COVID-19, Andrew Heffernan said “We have been continuing to provide emergency services to vulnerable customers during this time, such as heating breakdowns and water leaks, in accordance with Government guidelines regarding PPE and social distancing to protect our employees and our customers.”

For organisations currently working in accordance with government guidelines, Alcumus Sypol have created a free Social Distancing Risk Assessment to help businesses follow simple social distancing control measures in the workplace, managing the spread of COVID-19 and protecting employees.

For organisations hoping to return to work soon and eager to learn more about safely reintroducing their people to work, Alcumus PSM have created a free COVID-19 webinar series covering the practical application of how to get your people back to work safely and how to make your business as productive as it can be.
