Accreditation and qualifications
Top safety accreditation for Antron Care Ltd.
Antron Care 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.
Antron Care is principally involved in the building sector, specialising in building services supporting facility management. Antron’s most recent clients have included major players such as Berkeley Group, St George and Rendall & Rittner.
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 Antron Care 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.”
Alcumus SafeContractor is a third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.
Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
Client organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
Over 300 major, nation-wide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

Able to provide you with the necessary certificates to demonstrate the regulatory compliance of the work they do. These certificates may be requested by tenants, insurance providers and solicitors and may be needed if you are looking to let or come to sell your property.
Finding trustworthy tradespeople is a stressful experience. After all, no one wants to be taken for a ride by a rogue trader. If you want to find the right person for the job, we are here to help.
Poor installation work endangers lives.
We know the safety of your tenants is your top priority. Sub-standard work not only risks the integrity of your property, it also puts them in danger.
Under the Landlords and Tenants Act 1985, the property you let should be safe when your tenants move in and be maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy. In order to demonstrate this in the event that an accident occurs, it is important to be able to produce the correct certificates for notifiable work and show that appropriate, regular safety checks have been carried out to meet this duty of care.
You must make sure that any work carried out is completed under a written contract and notified to NAPIT. This ensures you have access to support and guidance should anything go wrong, including mediation, a work quality guarantee (where applicable) and advice should you wish to take further action in the event of a dispute.
Systems in place to ensure transparency and the highest possible administrative standards
ISO 9001:2015 specifies requirements for a quality management system when an organisation:
a) needs to demonstrate its ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, and
b) aims to enhance customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system, including processes for improvement of the system and the assurance of conformity to customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements.
All the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 are generic and are intended to be applicable to any organisation, regardless of its type or size, or the products and services it provides.
