A Wiltshire firm has won praise for its high standards of health and safety at work.

Corsham based SMARTech energy Ltd 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.

SMARTech energy offer complete energy management and reduction for commercial businesses; substantially reducing energy consumption costs by as much as 50% year on year. The award-winning company is a leading supplier of more than 30 low carbon technologies; from LED lighting and boiler controls to energy monitoring.

Stuart Pearce, MD and Founder of SMARTech energy said: “With the expansion of services from our offices in Corsham and specifically, our electrical services team, our application for Safe Contractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. This (SafeContractor) accreditation will confirm our commitment to good safety practices and enhance opportunities to win new contracts.”

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 SMARtech energy 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.”
