Top Safety Accreditation for Castle & Pryor Ltd

By Mark Castle | December 28, 2017
Local business Castle & Pryor Ltd has 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 SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Employing 40 people, Castle & Pryor Ltd is principally involved in the Construction  sector, specialising in the Diamond Drilling and Controlled Demolition & Airfield Infrastructure industries, with a £4.0 million turnover. Castle & Pryor Ltd most recent clients have included major players such as Morgan Sindall, Balfour Beatty, Ferrovial Kier and Galliford Try.

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 Castle & Pryor 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.”

"Castle & Pryor Ltd are dedicated to deliver good quality work on time and safely, so belonging to an organisation that helps us to deliver that is reassuring to all involved within our organisation. It amplifies our commitment to our industry that we really do care about our people our clients and the environment."
