COBA Europe has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor again, 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.
Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across our matting and flooring business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance COBA’s ability to win new contracts in the entrance matting sector, and our commitment to safety will be viewed positively by our clients and our insurers.
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 COBA Europe 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.”
