SCL Managed Services have been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.
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 SME’s and FSTE 100 companies.
SCL Managed Services Limited is principally involved in the Hard Services Facilities Management Sector, specialising in the electrical and mechanical installation and maintenance services industries. SCL’s more recent clients have included major organisations such as McDonalds, Mitie, Yodel and Wilson James to name a few.
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, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor 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 SCL Managed Services Limited have 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 on their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”
Mr Gary Clatworthy CEO of SCL Managed Services says:
“At SCL Managed Services we are passionate about achieving ‘WIN/WIN’ outcomes and ‘Being the Best We Can Be’. Where it comes to safety these values come to the fore. We are proud to have achieved accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace. This demonstrates not only our commitment to a safe working environment but in creating a WIN/WIN for everyone connected with the work we undertake. By achieving the highest accreditations we can demonstrate we are the best we can be. That is something we will continue to improve.”

Alcumus SafeContractor is a third party 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 300 major, nation-wide 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.
