MDS has gone through stringent risk assessment processes, assessments and staff training in order to gain SafeContractor accreditation.

MDS Leisure owner Matthew Sweed says: "We are proud to have achieved SafeContractor. It puts us in a very select group of suppliers in the sport and play sector that have achieved this. It's a badge of trustworthiness and reliability which goes way beyond the usual level in the sector."

The Alcumus SafeContractor accreditation scheme recognises an organisation’s capabilities for health and safety. Founded in 1999, “SafeContractor” now has over 20 years’ experience in health and safety. It was also a founding member of “Safety Schemes in Procurement” (SSIP), the mutual recognition scheme for occupational health and safety standards.

MDS Leisure also has over twenty years experience within the sector. Matthew Sweed has a wealth of personal experience going back over several decades and is qualified as a health and safety professional through NEBOSH (National Board Occupational Safety and Health).

Health and safety standards apply to every aspect of the company’s work. From PIPA inspections to consultancy services, from the production of custom inflatables and soft play to the revolutionary, world-renowned MDS AirPit gymnastics mats and tumble tracks. These standards have now been endorsed by the rigorous inspection and checks by Alcumus.
