It gives Ritec International great pleasure to be awarded SafePQQ accreditation a year after its introduction by Alcumus SafeContractor, a leading third-party accreditation scheme.
SafePQQ is an extension of the SafeContractor health and safety contractor management system and provides organisations with greater visibility of their supply chain compliance. It is an online product built to include the common question sets defined within PAS91, a standardised pre-qualification questionnaire.
Only contractors with the SafeContractor accreditation are eligible for SafePQQ and submit their details once a year. SafePQQ collects and verifies information including financial data, environmental management, quality management, equality, modern slavery, anti-bribery and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The scheme gives businesses the confidence that they have the most up to date information on a company’s supply chain compliance, helping them make informed decisions on procurement choices.
For Ritec, being SafePQQ accredited means it can demonstrate that the company is a safe, ethical and sustainable one to work with through the SafePQQ verification badge.
Martin Burkett AIIRSM, Ritec’s Production Manager, says: “Being SafePQQ Verified means as a supplier, we share our values with customers. In conjunction with SafeContractor, SafePQQ aligns the Health and Safety module and other key elements of PAS91, a construction industry specification, and is recognised across all industries. This gives our existing and potential customers the utmost confidence in working with us.”
Ritec is already accredited or certified with many industry standard schemes, and SafePQQ is another demonstration of Ritec’s commitment to continuous improvement.
