Renovotec has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Renovotec is principally involved in the Rugged Mobile Technology sector, specialising in the 3PL, Ports and DC industries. Most recent clients have included major players such as Kuehne + Nagel, P&G, Coca Cola, Eddie Stobart, Superdrug, Dart Containers and Accolade Wines.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “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.”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Renovotec has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector. 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.”
“It is important that Renovotec sets standards, not only for our own company but as a benchmark standard for the rugged hardware industry. We strive for best practice, making health and safety a priority in everything we do. Our customers trust us to deliver rugged products and services rapidly and cost-effectively; and our role as a trusted advisor also relies on the independently-accredited standards we adhere to” says Renovotec Managing Director Richard Gilliard.
