SafeContractor Accreditation Sticker B

Phil Day Sports, a leader in Sports ground maintenance and construction, has been awarded the Alcumus SafeContractor status for achieving excellence in health and safety in the workplace.

Local Worcestershire based business Phil Day Sports 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.

Alastair Day, Operations manager at Phil Day Sports said: Alastair Day

“We are delighted to have been awarded this accreditation, embracing health and safety practices in the workplace is fundamental in the work we do. To have passed such a rigorous assessment shows our commitment to health and safety for the benefit of everyone at Phil Day sports and reassures our customers that we take such standards seriously.”

Phil Day Sports based in Worcestershire is principally involved in the Sports Turf and amenity sector; specialising in the provision of sports ground maintenance and construction. Phil Day Sports’ most recent clients include Worcester County Cricket Club, West Bromwich Albion FC, Royal Grammar School Worcester and Kings School Worcester and Worcester city council to name a few.

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 Phil Day sports 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.”
