Alcumus Safe Contractor logo for health and safety in the workplace

We are delighted to announce, that we’ve been awarded Silver Sustainability Verification from Alcumus SafeContractor. This is 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.

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

Plant Room Winter Preparation

Whilst we’re currently enjoying the glorious weather, we know temperatures will soon drop. When heating systems are turned back on within hospitals, they can often be problematic with mechanical, steam and valve issues. So now is a great time to do your plant room winter preparation.

Mechanical issues include:

  • Coil damage Calorifier bundles get clogged up or split and need
    to be repaired or cut back
  • Plate heat exchangers leak and often require new gaskets or plate packs
  • Pipework can often split and have significant leaks and therefore need replacing

 Steam and valve issues due to the colder weather include:

  • Steam Trap SurveyIncreased condensate load will quickly expose trapping problems, causing safety issues, risking damage and costing money
  • Hardening old rubber internals can cause leaks, which worsen over time and need to be repaired or replaced
  • Actuators and control loops can prove very problematic with varying temperatures and need fine tuning
