These days, success in business doesn’t just depend on what you do, but how you do it. The way organisations manage risk – to take care of their people, customers and the environment – has become just as important as products and services themselves.
Our unrivalled range of risk management solutions allows our clients to demonstrate their commitment to running their business to the very highest standards and in the most responsible way.
Since 1979, we have been providing our clients with pioneering solutions in the field of risk management. We know that we can do even more for our customers by putting the technology we develop, in workers' hands.
By engaging and involving employees directly with health and safety, we’ll gain valuable data that we can share with our clients. This will help them identify problems before they occur so that they are able to prevent accidents, increase productivity and drive higher profitability and employee retention.
In 2019 our key focus will be how we can support our clients to be more than simply compliant. We build our solutions far beyond simple box ticking exercises, instead embracing new and evolving technology that will support our clients to keep their workforce safe.
That’s genuine added value, and real lives being saved. This will make our clients safer, healthier and stronger.
Why Safer, Healthier, Stronger?
We help organisations keep their environments and employees safe by building responsible and practical solutions into the heart of their culture.
We help to protect the wellbeing of employees, customers and the general public. We provide peace of mind for organisations and reassurance for their most vital resource - the people who support them.
We support organisations by helping them to understand how a proactive risk management strategy can strengthen their business. Whether that’s through increased productivity, greater automation or an enhanced commercial reputation, Alcumus can help.

Alcumus SafeContractor eases the burden of monitoring contractors’ health and safety processes by providing a bespoke and supported accreditation service that ensures all contractors are meeting their legal health and safety paper work requirements.
Our roots can be traced back to 1979, when Sypol Noise and Pollution was founded. Sypol was a pioneer in its field; among its innovations were the launch of its market-leading COSHH Management System in both paper and floppy disk formats – making it one of the first to embrace exciting new innovations.
Over the years the Sypol business expanded through a series of mergers and acquisitions, with the addition of health and safety consultancy, training, software, certification and accreditation expertise, resulting in the Alcumus business that exists today.
Our commitment to embracing new and evolving technology has never wavered – we are constantly looking for new ways to support and enhance our clients’ businesses and make it easier for them to keep their workforce safer, healthier and stronger.
When we started to evolve our business we needed a name that reflected our strengths, commitment, culture and values. In Greek mythology Alcumus was the father of Mentor so this seemed an ideal choice based on our ethos of exceptional mentoring, advice and support!
Our ‘star and shields’ logo represents ‘protection and guidance’ – shields being one of the most instantly recognisable symbols of protection and a star an international symbol of guidance.
