Top UK Safety Accreditation for JAEGGI Hybridtechnologie AG
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.
SafeContractor: recognisable uniform standard
JAEGGI is a Swiss company principally involved in manufacturing low-noise, high-efficiency, sustainable cooling solutions which reduce environmental impact and minimise life cycle costs, specialising in the HVAC, data centre and refrigeration industries.
JAEGGI’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a recognisable uniform standard that demonstrates its commitment to safety within their comprehensive on-site support and service capability which ensures the optimal performance of their coolers throughout their long life cycle.
Importance of good risk management
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 JAEGGI 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.”
Highly efficient and sustainable cooling equipment
Stephen Fairgrieve, Manager UK, Ireland & Scandinavia of JAEGGI confirmed: “JAEGGI customers have made a valuable long term investment by installing our unique highly efficient and sustainable cooling equipment. SafeContractor accreditation provides our customers with the required assurance that the on-site support activities carried out by trained JAEGGI technicians are completed as safely as possible.”
Certificate as confirmation of competency
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.
