Taking pre-qualification to the next level
Choice has added Alcumus SafeContractor SafePQQ (Pre-Qualification Questionnaire) verification to its extensive list of business credentials. As an extension of SafeContractor’s longstanding Health & Safety accreditation scheme, SafePQQ was introduced in 2019. SafePQQ collects information to allow businesses to demonstrate verification in relation to key sustainability topics, including: finance, environment, quality management, equality, modern slavery, anti-bribery, GDPR, right-to-work, building information modelling, and references.
SafePQQ is an optional add-on to the SafeContractor health & safety audit that demonstrates commitment to best practice and maintenance of the highest operational standards. It has been built to include the common question sets within PAS91, used by buyers to asses a business’ suitability as a working partner in relation to compliance with relevant standards and legislation. As such, annually reviewed SafePQQ is designed to reduce large amounts of repetitive admin submission work in relation to business tendering and to confer enhanced status on the companies that possess the certification.
“This certification will bring us further competitive advantage in fire and security marketplaces,” said Choice Director Barry Critchell. “The nature of the fields in which we operate, protecting lives and property, demands particular sensitivity towards compliance and best practice in all areas of our business. SafePQQ gives us a strong visible endorsement of our commitment to these matters.”
