Top Safety Accreditation for Balance Leisure.

Local business Balance Leisure 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.

Balance Leisure is principally involved in the sports and leisure sector, specialising in sales and service. Balance Leisure’s most recent clients have included major players such as Belfast City Council, Hasting Hotel Group and the Raddison Hotel Group.

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 Balance Leisure 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.”

“We are delighted to have received this accreditation. We are one of few fitness equipment service providers within the market in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland to have this accreditation.”
