Vergo Achieves Top Safety Accreditation & Verified Gold Status for Sustainability
September 21, 2022
Earlier in the year we successfully renewed our Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation recognising excellence in health and safety in the workplace. We are delighted to announce that we have also passed the necessary requirements, and have now been verified as a Gold Status company for Sustainability.
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.
Vergo’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, Chief Operating Officer of Alcumus SME 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 Vergo 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.”
As well as living by our motto ‘Safety First, Always’ we have took time to develop our Environmental Sustainability Policy which sets out how we manage our approach to being a sustainable, environmentally responsible and energy efficient business, and we are thrilled to have received the SafeContractor seal of approval and verified gold status for sustainability.
