Cardiff based Company Apollo Wales has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace following its recent status as Employer of the Year 2017 in the Cardiff Business Awards.
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 28 people and subcontracting more than 200, Apollo Wales is principally involved in the Cleaning sector, specialising in the Industrial and Commercial industries, with a £1 million turnover. Apollo Wales most recent clients have included major players such as Morrisons, IKEA, Tesco, Premiere Cinema Cardiff, U-Fit Fitness Cardiff and many more.
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 Apollo Wales 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.”
Silvia Bolduri, Head of Commercial Operations at Apollo Wales said: “We’re delighted to have been accredited for our existing policies and are thankful that an External organisation has recognised this. We’re hopeful that this will lead to further expansion in the UK following the recent opening of our second Office in Regent Street, London.”
