We are very proud to announce that we have been awarded an accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace for a seventh consecutive year.
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 around 50 people, the CountyClean Group of companies are principally involved in the liquid waste management sector, delivering environmental support services across a variety of commercial and consumer industries, with a £5 million turnover. Our clients include major airports, construction firms and utilities organisations, as well as businesses throughout the South East and London including tourist attractions, heritage sites, government bodies and homeowners.
Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance our ability to win new contracts, and our commitment to safety will be viewed positively by our 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 the CountyClean Group 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 are very aware of the importance this status holds for construction professionals and hope that it will continue to help CountyClean strengthen and build upon relationships within the industry.”
