Local business, WFP Fire & Security has been awarded 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.

Employing over 15 people, WFP is principally involved in the construction & maintenance sectors, specialising in the CCTV, Fire and Security industries. WFP’s most recent clients have included major players such as the BBC, Helen Rollason Charity and Tesco.

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 WFP 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.”

Paul Field, MD and founder of the award-winning company WFP said.

"We are proud to have held the SafeContractor Accreditation for a number of years and once again having passed the assessments and proven our competence and Health & Safety for both employees and clients.
