Top Safety Accreditation for John E. Wright & Co Ltd – Safe Contractor Scheme

We are pleased to announce that we have  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 90 people, John E. Wright & Co Ltd is principally involved in the wide format print sector, specialising in the supply of materials and installation services across both public & private sector industries, across the East Midlands and beyond. Our most recent clients have included major players such as Bombardier, Tomlinson Building, Alton Towers, the Universities of Leicester, Derby & Nottingham, the City of Culture project in Hull and TFL.

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 John E. Wright 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 pleased to add this accreditation to the list of assurances that we can offer our clients. We recently upgraded our ISO 9001 & and 14001 Standards to the more rigorous 2015 Standard and work diligently to ensure Safety at Work, the provision of Quality in all our activities, and a mindful and measured approach to maintaining Environmental standards.
