Almeda achieves top safety accreditation

Richard Frost Almeda Commercial and Compliance Manager

Almeda Facilities Management has been awarded accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Based in Keynsham, Almeda works with commercial landlords and businesses with property responsibility in the South West of England and South Wales.

The company employs 50 people and counts @Bristol, Arnolfini, Bristol & Bath Science Park, SS Great Britain and many more as clients.

Highlighting the quality of Almeda’s work

Safecontractor accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Richard Frost, Commercial and Compliance Manager at Almeda, commented: “We’re delighted to have renewed our Safecontractor SSiP accreditation. The certificate can be used to demonstrate to our clients the high standard of health and safety we have attained.”

John Kinge, technical director of 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 Almeda has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
