PM PROjEN become Safe Contractor Approved
PM PROjEN, has partnered with Alcumus SafeContractor, a leading provider of technology-led risk management solutions for both contractor safety management and accreditation. PM PROjEN are very pleased to have achieved Gold SafePQQ verification in addition to becoming Safe Contractor Approved.
PM PROjEN will be using Alcumus’ SafeContractor Client Portal to reduce the time spent conducting vetting and compliance checks by three hours per contractor. 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.
Lyndon Workman, Health, Safety and Environmental Manager at PM PROjEN, commented:
“We work with some large Blue-chip organisations, meaning we sometimes allocate projects worth millions of pounds to contractors. It is essential that they are following the correct procedures and protecting our reputation with the customer. SafeContractor provides peace of mind that contractor standards are meeting our environmental, social and governance obligations. Onboarding contractors for each new project can be an arduous task. With SafeContractor we can mitigate the cost and time of trying to manage contractors ourselves by accessing a ready pool of accredited contractors. This will build confidence and drive efficiency for our team, which will help us to grow sustainably and ethically as a business. We are living these values by becoming accredited ourselves, opening PM PROjEN to work with other large clients.”
Helen Jones, Chief Operating Officer, Enterprise at Alcumus, commented:
“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 PM PROjEN 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. We’re thrilled that PM PROjEN has joined our community and we wish them every success. More than 480 leading organisations, and 33,000 contractors have selected SafeContractor to become safer, healthier and stronger.”
