Local business Fastline Services Ltd has been awarded the 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.
Fastline Services Ltd is principally involved in the facilities management sector, specialising in line marking and surface repairs services. Fastline Services’ most recent clients have included major players such as Euro Car Parts, Amazon & Buddy Platform
The company’s application for the renewal of the SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the continued 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 Fastline Services 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.”
Quote from Adam Fleming (Managing Director)
“Fastline Services Ltd is delighted to receive the renewal of our Safe Contractor accreditation. It demonstrates our commitment to safety. As a young but rapidly growing business, we realise the importance of operating to the highest standards from the start. By early implementation of quality practices, which usually comes much later in a life of a company, they become the fabric of our core values and working practices.”
