Powerstar is proud to announce that it has once again been awarded the Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation 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.
Powerstar is proud to have achieved the SafeContractor accreditation as it recognises the risks inherent in the manufacture of the technologically advanced solutions that it provides to the market. In addition to this, investment in its people is a key Powerstar value so keeping these people safe and healthy is of paramount importance and is also a natural foundation which allows for the development and growth of Powerstar’s employees.
Operating to high health and safety standards ensures a peace of mind which results in employees being able to work more productively and with better quality as concerns surrounding safety are minimised. Consequently, this allows Powerstar to maintain its market leading position due to the increased productivity that is achieved through refined and documented processes, and the attainment of an accreditation as respected as Alcumus SafeContractor further underpins its commitment to, and benefits of, developing and maintaining high standards for health and safety in the workplace.
Commenting on the recent successful attainment of this accreditation, Chief Operating Officer, Lee Hudson said “We strive to continuously refine our processes and manufacturing operations in order to deliver the most value to our customers, but also to ensure a safe and positive workplace is achieved for every member of staff. I’m delighted we have this highly regarded accreditation in our portfolio which highlights our commitment to health and safety.”
Powerstar holds a number of accreditations in addition to the Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation, such as ISO9001:2015 for quality management and ISO14001:2015 for environmental management.
