Local business Nant 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 34 people, Nant Ltd is principally involved in the Legionella control and water safety sector, specialising in the care and education properties across the UK. Nant Ltd’s clients include a number of large care organisations and local authorities.

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 Nant 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.”

“We’re proud to continue our commitment to the highest levels of safe operation and quality, achieving SafeContractor for the third time. This is a testament to our procedures and policies, that have helped us achieve various accreditations including ISO 9001:2015, CHAS, Altius, Constructionline and LCA.” – Richard Deakin, General Manager of Nant Ltd
