A KEIGHLEY-based company has been awarded a top accreditation for the sixth consecutive year.

Control Technology UK Ltd has again received the accolade, for excellence in workplace health and safety, from Alcumus SafeContractor.

The accreditation enhances the company’s ability to secure new contracts and demonstrates a commitment to safety that is viewed positively by insurers and others.

Control Technology UK Ltd is principally involved in the industrial heating and controls sector and services sites across northern England. Customers include Tarmac, XPO Distribution and the prison service.

Gemma Archibald, director of Alcumus SafeContractor, said: “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors which 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 Control Technology UK Ltd has done.

“The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the sector.”
