Gold Sustainability Award for Gericke UK

Gericke UK has been awarded Gold Sustainability 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.

Gericke UK is a leading supplier of process solutions for handling of powders, from Pneumatic Conveying, Sifting, Size Reduction, Mixing and Feeding Solutions and is part of the Gericke Group of companies trading since 1894, Gericke UK has over 40 employees working both inside our facilities in Ashton-Under-Lyne and on site with clients. 

Gericke understands that for a client to run a safe facility it must provide staff who are well trained, diligent, and work well with the client to ensure site safety is ensured for our own team and those around them.

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