Top Safety Accreditation for T R Freeman

November 01 2017

Cambridge based business T R Freeman, 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.

T R Freeman is principally involved in the construction sector, specialising in roofing, cladding and architectural façade.  T R Freemans’ most recent clients have included major players such as Willmott Dixon, Morgan Sindall, Kiers and Linden Homes.

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."

Gary Webb, Pre Construction Director said “The safety of our staff and those around them is paramount. Being awarded the Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation demonstrates our commitment to best practice when it comes to health and safety. We ensure we have stringent policies in place and it is good to see that our high standard have been recognised”.
