VIP Security (Essex) Ltd demonstrate their health & safety excellence with SafeContractor accreditation.

“At VIP Security Services we’re passionate about working in partnership with our clients to provide the very best security services, and to deliver the highest safety standards. We joined Alcumus SafeContractor in 2013 to demonstrate our health & safety compliance to our customers. We have worked with SafeContractor for almost ten years now, due to it being the best accreditation for Health and Safety a company would need.”

“Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation enhances our ability to win new contacts, and our commitment to safety will be viewed positively by our insurers when the company liability is up for renewal.” commented Darren Hyde, Managing Director at VIP Security (Essex) Ltd.

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.”
