ICT services specialists vietec Ltd has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for the 7th Year 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.
The company has grown by 25% in the past 12 months and has future plans to grow in size again this year, vietec Limited is principally involved in the ICT Services sector, specialising in the Education and Corporate industries, with a multi-million turnover.
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, 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 vietec Ltd 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.”
Phil Drew, vietec, Managing Director of , said “We continually work to improve everything we do and completing accreditation with SafeContractor, which we have held since 2013 is one of our company annual goals. We believe that ‘to challenge is to help’ and our clients will find vietec enthusiastic in promoting health and safety, innovation and best practice.”
vietec‘ ethos is built around how safely we can deliver ICT services and solutions; therefore, we continually develop and train employees to uphold these high standards.
