SafePQQ Accreditation for Lynx UK Ltd
Lynx UK Ltd has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving GOLD SafePQQ Accreditation and excellence in health and safety in the workplace. Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third-party accreditation scheme that 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.
SafePQQ is an extension of the SafeContractor health & safety audit that demonstrates our commitment to best practice and has been built to include the common question sets within PAS91. SafePQQ collects information and verifies your business against key business sustainability topics, including Finance, Environment, Quality Management, Equality, Modern Slavery, Anti-bribery, GDPR, Right to Work, Building Information Modelling, and References.
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 Lynx UK Ltd 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.”
