Top Safety Accreditation for RP Support

March 2017

Local business RP Support Limited (RPS) 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.

Employing 13 people, RPS is principally involved in the 3D printing sector, specialising in the design and manufacture of stereolithography systems and also offers service and technical support to all users of stereolithography, laser sintering, Markforged and Hewlett Packard 3D printing equipment.

RPS’s most recent clients have included major players such as Paragon RP and they have also recently signed an agreement to distribute Hewlett Packard 3D printers.

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 RPS 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.”

Rory Jackson, Director at RPS commented; “We are very pleased to have been awarded this accreditation. It enables RPS as a company to clearly show that we are committed to both the highest quality in our products and services as well as the upmost safety and well-being of our employees and our customers’ employees.”
