Top Safety Accreditation for ASW Property Services Limited
Local business ASW Property Services 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.
Employing over 100 people with a turnover in excess of £10 million, ASW is principally involved in the Maintenance, Refurbishment and Facilities Management sector, specialising in the public sector and commercial property industries. ASW’s most recent clients have included major players such as City & County of Swansea, NPT Homes, Newydd Housing Association and SA Brain.
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 ASW 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.”
Anthony Thomas, MD of ASW Property Services said: “We are delighted that our Health & Safety systems have been audited and awarded with the highly prestigious Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation; this is reward for the robustness of our systems and the exemplary way that our staff undertake their work on a day to day basis.”
