SafeContractor Approved

The Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation is a widely recognised measure of health & safety best practice, which allows us to stand out from the crowd when we are tendering for business and potential clients are looking for suitable partnership organisations.


A SafeContractor accreditation demonstrates that we have our health & safety documentation in place, it is up-to-date and it meets recognised industry standards. We can show evidence that we have the credentials, procedures and experience to work on sites across many industry sectors and that we are committed to best practices and are a professional and credible business. We have achieved the SafeContractor approval through a three-stage assessment process that looks at our systems and documentation.

SafePQQ is an extension of SafeContractor and provides third-party verification on finance, anti-bribery, environment, GDPR, quality management, right-to-work, equality, BIM, modern slavery, and references.

There are three supplier tiers under SafePQQ - Gold, Silver or Bronze – and we are delighted to have attained the highest Gold standard.
