Redpack Maintains Safe Contractor Accreditation

Aug 08 2023

For the 11th year running, Redpack Packaging Machinery are delighted to have been awarded Safe Contractor Accreditation for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.


The accolade, provided by Alcumus SafeContractor, is a leading accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous practices in health and safety management amongst contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK of all sizes from SME’s right up to FTSE 100 companies. The company’s application for Safe Contractor accreditation was primarily driven by the need for uniform health and safety conventions across the business.


Redpack General Manager, Gary Howard commented said: “Having rigorous health and safety standards in place is essential for Redpack Packaging Machinery. This assures our customers that all of our manufacturing, installation and service personnel are operating to the very highest of standards.”


Gary concludes “Maintaining the accreditation for the 11th year in succession demonstrates the commitment of Redpack Packaging Machinery to act responsibly in the support of our customers as part of our service provision.”


About The Scheme

Alcumus SafeContractor is an accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.


Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.


Client organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.


Over 480 major, nationwide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.
