Lorien Engineering Solutions has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

Lorien is an engineering design and project management organisation with operations in Burton on Trent and Wroc?aw, Poland.   Alcumus SafeContractor is an accreditation scheme that recognises rigorous standards in health and safety management among contractors. It is used by thousands of organisations in the UK including SMEs and FTSE 100 companies.

Lorien first gained SafeContractor accreditation more than 10 years ago, meeting the need for a uniform standard across the business. The accreditation enhances the company’s ability to win new contracts and demonstrates its commitment to safety to risk managers.   Bill Treddenick, director at Lorien, said, “Our continued accreditation to Alcumus SafeContractor and to BS OHSAS 18001 demonstrates our commitment to achieve the highest health and safety standards.

“A good proportion of our work involves the construction of processes and facilities. Whilst this sector has made great strides in health, safety and welfare in recent years, there is still more that can be done. It’s our aim to continue to be at the forefront of the ongoing development of standards and achievement.”

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 Lorien 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.”
