Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumis 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 FCS has done. The firms high standard has set an example which hopefully will be follower by other companies within the sector.
