Top Safety Accreditation for Quantech Environmental Ltd.
Expanding business Quantech Environmental 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.
Quantech Environmental Ltd. is principally involved in the HVAC sector, specialising in the air conditioning and building services industries. Quantech’s more recent clients have included major organisations such as CBRE Managed Services, London Fire Brigade, London Overground Rail, Marlowes Shopping Centre, Matrix Control Solutions and Al Murad Tiles.
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.
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 Quantech 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.Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor
I was delighted that we have received our SafeContractor accreditation for 2017/18.
This is an important and highly valued achievement for Quantech Environmental as it allows us to demonstrate to our clients, and potential clients alike, that we are a fully compliant, trustworthy organisation and that we meet all standards which a client might potentially want their service provider to meet.
For us, it’s about being able to demonstrate and display the standards of which we’re proud and which we want to share with the world. For clients, seeing an accreditation from SafeContractor provides a peace of mind and an assurance that their service provider is a company which strives for, and attains, the highest levels of compliance and an adherence to health & safety.
SafeContractor allows a company to make a distinction between them and other less compliant companies in the market-place. We’re very excited to be able to tell our clients we are SafeContractor accredited and trust they are as reassured by this status as we are pleased.Ken Edwards, Quantech Environmental Ltd.

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.
