For the second year in a row Durham Electrics 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.
Durham Electrics is principally involved as an electrical contractor, specialising in the residential and commercial sectors in particular emergency call out support. Durham Electrics most recent clients have included major players such as PH Jones (British Gas), HomeServe and the Witton Hall estate.
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.
"More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Durham Electrics 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.”
