Top Safety Accreditation

NIKKEN Kosakusho Europe 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.

Employing over 100 people across Europe, NIKKEN is a leading supply chain company to High Value Manufacturing and precision technology industry sectors.

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 NIKKEN 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.”

Tony Bowkett, CEO and President of NIKKEN Kosakusho Europe added: “The SafeContractor accreditation not only enables NIKKEN to carry out work on many Blue-chip customers’ sites that require this third-party qualification, but also demonstrates our absolute commitment to best practice and safe working procedures.”
