Vista Group – Safecontractor

PRESS RELEASE

Top Safety Accreditation for Vista Workspace Solutions Ltd t/a The Vista Group
Yet again, local business The Vista 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.
The Vista Group is principally involved in the Business Change sector, specialising in commercial relocations and move management, workspace solutions, recycling and commercial graphics. Vista’s most recent clients have included major players such as BUPA Healthcare.

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 Vista 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.”

Richard Wilson, Managing Director of The Vista Group said, “We are very pleased to have met Safecontractor exacting standards again. Health and Safety in the workplace is of the highest importance to us and is an integral part of our staff training and work practices on a daily basis. Achieving excellence is our aim therefore we continually strive to improve on our accomplishments.”
