National removals and storage company, Bishop's Move, is delighted to have been awarded a top safety accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading accreditation scheme that recognises extremely rigorous standards in health and safety management amongst its contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.
Bishop's Move is a leading company in the UK removals and storage industry with business relocation clients including Shell, BUPA, Pearson, Italia Conti, universities and hospital trusts.
The company’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 Bishop's Move has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example that 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.”
Stuart Philp, General Manager for Business Relocation at Bishop's Move said, "We are delighted that Bishop's Move has been awarded this top safety accreditation. It is a true testament to the hard work and dedication of our employees who pride themselves in providing customers with the highest of relocation standards, whether it is a small office move or large national corporate relocation for a blue chip company."
