Top safety accreditation for PLF International

PLF International 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.

PLF International is a worldwide market leader in vacuum powder filling technology, with a customer base that includes global brands in the food, pharmaceutical and beverage sectors.

The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor status 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.”

She continued: “More companies need to understand the importance of adopting good risk management in the way PLF 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.”

Mark Emond, CEO at PLF International said: “We are proud to have been awarded SafeContractor status, as it reflects the ongoing commitment to health and safety throughout our business. It also shows PLF’s customers how we fulfil all necessary requirements while maintaining our high standards every day of the year.”
