Sychem are a leading provider of disinfection, sterilisation and decontamination equipment and services to a variety of sectors. With our industry-leading expertise, a considerable part of our success is due to our knowledge per sector, our skilled team and our high levels of Health and Safety.
We are incredibly pleased to announce that Sychem has achieved SafeContractor accreditation!
What is the SafeContractor accreditation?
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.
The idea of the SafeContractor accreditation is to showcase that a business puts its employees’ health and safety first- which is something that Sychem does.
It ensures that companies meet all of the necessary requirements surrounding Health and Safety, Equal Opportunities, Diversity and Environmental Management Practises, within one accreditation.
What does achieving SafeContractor mean for Sychem?
Sychem Ltd are proud to have achieved SafeContractor accreditation as it recognises the importance, we place on workplace Health & Safety in our manufacture, installation and servicing.
How to achieve accreditation?
In order for a business to achieve SafeContractor Approved status, a business must prove that they are a safe and responsible company. To achieve this, companies must ensure that all paperwork is compliant with current legislation and guarantee that processes are in place to ensure that health and safety are handled in the best way possible.
Achieving the accreditation involves:
- Businesses undergoing a rigorous assessment process to review and audit their health and safety procedures.
- Quality processes and environmental management.
- Examining their track record for safe practice on and off-site.
In addition, contractors who achieve the status are included in a database which allows potential and existing customers to vet them and ensure their procedures are of the highest quality.
Robert Dickson (Sychem QHSE Manager), has worked to achieve certification with SafeContractor; so that our customers can be sure of the quality of our people and our work on site.
A few words from our CEO
When asked about the recent successful attainment of this accreditation, Sychem’s CEO Michael Barnes said; “We strive to continuously refine our processes and service operations in order to deliver the most value to our customers, but also to ensure a safe and positive workplace is achieved for every member of staff.
I’m delighted that we have this highly regarded accreditation in our portfolio, which highlights our commitment to health and safety.”
What accreditations has Sychem received in the past?
Health and safety has never been more prominent, and to ensure their high standards of Health and Safety continue, Sychem is CHAS, SafeContractor and ISO 9001 accredited.
What is the difference between the SafeContractor and Chas accreditations?
CHAS and SafeContractor are two Health and Safety accreditations that businesses need to show that their Health and Safety processes are effective.
SafeContractor is an accreditation that does precisely that. It demonstrates that you meet specifics of health and safety to potential clients as laid down in its detail. The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) is a pre-approval scheme relating to health and safety.
The accreditation is an incredible achievement for everyone here at Sychem.
