EURO-DIESEL (UK) LTD is proud to announce their recertification by CHAS and the renewal of Safecontractor. CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) is rapidly becoming a construction industry standard

It allows buyers to measure H&S standards fairly and consistently across a range of companies working in allied but often dissimilar trades. The aim of the scheme is to improve health and safety standards across the construction industry and to alleviate some of the inevitable duplication that exists when completing tender applications

Participating major construction industry buyers such as Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, housing associations and increasingly private organisations can now logon to a single database and check the current status of all potential suppliers. Increasingly CHAS accreditation is requested by the UK’s major construction companies as it allows uninterrupted transparency in the lengthy pre-qualification system

EURO-DIESEL (UK) Ltd has also successfully renewed its Safecontractor accreditation reinforcing our commitment to achieving excellence in health & safety. Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors

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

Said Rob Pitt, Managing Director of EURO-DIESEL (UK) Ltd ‘We take great pride in our achieving these renewals. Our commitment to these stringent Health & Safety benchmarks demonstrates our firm belief in Health & Safety good practice. Not only do the schemes enhance our enviable record for the management and application of H&S systems in the critical power sector; they also assist us in attracting new contacts as clients increasing recognise their merits’

These two Health & Safety accreditations along with EURO-DIESEL (UK) Ltd’s Integrated Management System, which incorporates ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health & Safety Management, demonstrate the Company’s commitment to excellence.
