CET Calibration Achieves Alpha Standard for Safety

SafeContractor Accreditation Sticker BExcellent levels of health & safety in the workplace have been guaranteed for CET Calibration, a specialist independent calibration laboratory, thanks to accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor.

Chesterfield-based CET Calibration provides complete calibration solutions both on-site and in the laboratory for a series of calibration services including electrical, dimensional, temperature, pressure, testing and repairs. It is part of CET, a leading supplier of outsourced services to a wide range of industry sectors.

CET Calibration’s application for SafeContractor status was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business which builds on its own commitment to health & safety for its employees, visitors and contractors. Alcumus SafeContractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises extremely rigorous standards in health & safety management and is used by thousands of organisations in the UK from SMEs to FTSE 100 companies.

Bob Blunden, CEO of CET, commented: “The team at CET are making rapid strides towards becoming a market leader in their field, and the key to this is achieving independent verification of excellence in a number of areas. This new accreditation backs up CET Calibrations’ robust health & safety policy and training, demonstrating a commitment to safe working which provides peace of mind to customers.”

Gemma Archibald, Director of Alcumus SafeContractor said: “Major organisation simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health & safety policies in place. CET Calibrations’ high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
