Bowers Group Achieves Top Safety Accreditation

Top Safety Accreditation for Bowers Group

Precision measurement company Bowers Group 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.

Bowers Group supplies industry with an unrivalled choice of high quality precision measuring equipment, bespoke system design and laboratory-based UKAS calibration services. Its pre-eminent position in the metrology market, along with the Group's continued investment in cutting edge technology, allows bowers to provide its customers with a truly complete metrology service.

Sound Health and Safety Policies in Place

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 Bowers Group 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.”

Meeting the Highest Standards

Bowers Group Managing Director Steve White said: “As a company at the forefront of the metrology industry, Bowers Group is delighted to have achieved this accreditation. We are proud of our health and safety policies, and always strive to meet the highest standards in all areas of the business.”
