Local business, JWCI Ltd, has been awarded two prestigious accreditations from Alcumus SafeContractor. They have achieved SafeContractor accreditation for achieving excellence in health and safety alongside the Gold Standard SafePQQ accreditation which proves their commitment to compliance and ethical business practice covering topics including quality, GDPR, equality and the environment.
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.
Based in Stoke-on-Trent but working throughout the UK and Europe, JWCI Ltd is involved in the process engineering sector, specialising in the chemical and food and beverage industries. JWCI’s most recent clients have included major players such as Ecolab, Arla Foods and Dunlop Aircraft Tyres.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. The SafeContractor accreditations will enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts and set out its commitment to safety and ethical practices within business.
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 and business practice in place.”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that JWCI 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.”
Kerry Callear of JWCI said “We’ve been helping process plants refit, refurbish, maintain and improve plant efficiency for over 25 years and we’re proud to say we have always offered an expert and knowledgeable service with our team of highly skilled specialists. We have always had a complete dedication to site safety which is is proven by our continued prestigious accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor and the receipt of Gold Standard SafePQQ also highlights best business practice to our clients.
