EnergyAce SafeContractor Accreditation

Uncategorized No Comments

Local business, EnergyAce, has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace for the eighteenth year.

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

Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading 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.

Gemma Archibald, Chief Operating Officer of Alcumus SME 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 EnergyAce 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.”

Uncategorized No Comments

Today is Fuel Poverty Awareness Day 2021.

EnergyAce are proud supporting members of National Energy Action (NEA) and their work to combat fuel poverty is truly admirable.

Fuel Poverty refers to houses that are not able warm there home. This is a luxury that many of us take for granted. Factors like rising energy costs, low incomes and energy-inefficient homes are restricting people’s options, leaving them in impossible situations like having to choose to heat their home, feed their children or pay their rent. These are choices no one should ever have to make.

There is a statutory target for all houses in the UK to reach EPC C (Energy Performance Certificate) rating by 2030, however this is a long time to wait for houses with low income. This is why it is so essential that people become more aware of the issues faces with Fuel Poverty.
