PDR has been once again been awarded accreditations from both Alcumus SafeContractor and CHAS Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading 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. CHAS is the established market leader for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK.
PDR has been associated with SafeContractor and CHAS for a number of years and its ongoing accreditation is driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor and CHAS accreditations enhance the company’s ability to win new contracts and shows the high priority and commitment placed in ensuring its sites are safe.
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 PDR 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 Dransfield, managing director of PDR said: “An enhanced level of commitment to health and safety is just another but incredibly important way PDR stands out from other similar sized contractors. We take our approach to health and safety very seriously employing specialist firm ProR!sk Safety Management to vet and audit all of our sites and procedures on a regular basis and provide valuable feedback to ensure we are constantly improving.
SafeContractor and CHAS, which many major clients recognise and accept as the gold standard in health and safety practice, provides third party confirmation that we are meeting and exceeding our own high expectations in this area”.
