Local business, Momentum Electrical Ltd, has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading 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 the historic Royal Clarence Yard in Gosport, Hampshire, Momentum Electrical Ltd specialise in the provision of electrical installation, testing and maintenance services to the industrial, commercial, marine and residential market segments.
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, Chief Operating Officer of Alcumus SME 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 Momentum Electrical 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.”
Nicholas Rolf, Managing Director of Momentum Electrical said “The work we carry out can be fraught with risk and maintaining a safe system of work is vital to ensure the safety and welfare of our own employees as well as that of our customers.” “We firmly believe that the SafeContractor accreditation will give prospective customers the confidence that we are a competent, professional and safe organisation to deal with.” ”As a SME, this is a fantastic achievement and one of the key initiatives that we believe will provide a solid foundation for sustainable growth and future employment opportunities.”
