Top Safety Accreditation for Property Security Group Limited


Basingstoke-based Property Security Group Limited has been awarded accreditation from Alcumus SafeContractor 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.

Employing 14 people, family-owned and family-run Property Security Group Limited (PSG) is principally involved in protecting construction sites, vacant properties, private airfields, country estates and building site scaffolding right across the UK.

Locally, across the Bracknell, Basingstoke and Newbury corridor, Property Security Group operate their own 24hr keyholder, intruder alarm response, mobile security patrol, daily unlocking & locking and temporary security guarding services.

The company’s application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor 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 Property Security Group has done. The firm’s high standard has set an example which hopefully will be followed by other companies within the security 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.”

Paul Penfold,  Operations Director of Property Security Group Limited, said: “As our business continues to expand, we need the reassurance that our processes and practices, especially when operating on client premises, meet or exceed industry standards.”

“The prestigious SafeContractor award enabled us to look closely at how we support our clients and staff, it was not just a tick box exercise. It was a learning experience for everyone involved in the accreditation process and we are grateful to the Alcumus SafeContractor technical team for their advice and help.”

1. Alcumus SafeContractor is an independent third party accreditation scheme that assesses the health and safety arrangements, policies and qualifications of contractors. Many major clients recognise the scheme and accept the SafeContractor certificate as confirmation of competency in health and safety practice.

Under the SafeContractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.

Client organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.

Over 470 major, nationwide businesses, from several key sectors, have signed up to use the scheme when selecting contractors for services such as building, cleaning, maintenance, security, refurbishment or electrical and mechanical work.

Entry was being made via an external road frontage where there were PIR cameras because of practical and GDPR issues, through a locked door which was previously blocked off. We activated the two 110db sirens and strobes which stopped them in our tracks. Our 24hr control room called the local security keyholder company who were on site within 8 minutes and chased them off. Un
