High quality security services provider Veritech Systems Ltd feedback on the great service and support they’ve received from SafeContractor.

Veritech Systems Ltd is a specialist security company that utilises their expertise to safeguard commercial property and construction sites. The award-winning company provide 24-hour security to clients through a variety of products and professional services including CCTV, Fever Detection Cameras, Perimeter Detection systems and Security Guards.

Launched in 2009, the friendly and professional team have years of training and experience, working with clients to design bespoke perimeter security for their site needs. Their business mission is to be the security provider of choice to its customers by providing compliant high-quality services.

Veritech Systems Ltd have built a strong working partnership with the SafeContractor team.

“Veritech Systems operate a high-profile security business installing electronic security systems and providing manned and mobile Security services to protect and serve our wide range of clients. In addition to providing expert services to our loyal customers, a key to our success is our commitment to health & safety and effective quality management systems. To showcase this, we joined SafeContractor in 2011 to gain accreditation and demonstrate our health & safety compliance to potential customers.” commented Paul Oldridge, Managing Director at Veritech Systems Ltd.

“I have been dealing with SSIP Health & Safety companies for 10 years. The bespoke advice given to our business by our SafeContractor Account Executive, David, during this time has always been professional and understanding of specific issues. David is a great support to our company, and a real credit to SafeContractor and Alcumus. As a result of his ongoing support I will continue support SafeContractor and highly recommend the service provided” continued Paul.

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 compliant with the law.

Gemma Archibald, Managing Director of Alcumus SafeContractor, says: "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 it’s 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.”

How Veritech Systems Ltd safely returned to work.

Following the Coronavirus pandemic and its economic disruption, Veritech Systems Ltd adopted new COVID-19 secure working practices to enable them to continue servicing their valued clients.

Paul Oldridge, says: “Veritech has continually monitored the current situation and government guidance on the Coronavirus outbreak. Duty of care to our staff, suppliers, subcontractors and customers is of paramount importance. We have undertaken a series of toolbox talks and meetings to ensure our staff are equipped with the knowledge to work safely, and have reduced our non-essential travel and increased our cleaning regime.

We have contingency plans in place to ensure the continuity of security staff on our customer’s sites and in our 24/7 control Room. This includes maintaining our high standards of health & safety with a specific emphasis on lone working and emergency response.”
