Alcumus SafeContractor is a 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 55 people Makers operates nationally in the structural refurbishment sector operating principally as a main contractor, or a specialist subcontractor. Offering professional contracting expertise in Budgetary Specifications, Test and Investigation, Concrete Repairs, Liquid Roofing and Coatings, Structural Remediation and Movement and Expansion Joints.
With over 40 years of dedicated contracting experience, Makers has been recognised both nationally and internationally receiving numerous industry awards for its projects, providing complete technical solutions in five key sectors to Engineers, Building Surveyors, Architects, Facility Managers, Asset Owners and Operators alike.
The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the requirement to maintain its high standards of operation and to continue a uniform standard across the 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 in place”
“More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way that Makers have done. The company’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 our contractors as they progress through the accreditation process”
Sean Allsop, HSQE Manager for Makers said “Health and Safety is paramount, and I am delighted we have again achieved the SafeContractor Accreditation which demonstrates our robust practices.”
Simon Lamb, Managing Director of Makers said “This is the 7th year in which we have achieved the SafeContractor accreditation and I am pleased we continue to underline our consistency.
