IDS Group has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Alcumus SafeContractor is a third party accreditation scheme which recognises rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst contractors.
Based in Southgate, North London, IDS Group is principally involved in the physical security sector, specialising in leisure, construction and residential industries.
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 IDS Group has done. 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.”
Tas Kyriacou, IDS Group Head of Business Development concludes, “This is a great recognition of the principals and processes that we have worked hard to put in place. We believe this accreditation will instil great confidence in future clients resulting in many more successful projects.”
