TES Excel in Independent Audit

TES Excel in Independent Audit

TES have recently been recognised as having excellent Health, Safety, Environmental, Quality and Corporate Social Responsibility systems in place as part of the reassessment for Achilles UVDB B2 Verify Accreditation. The scores awarded are the best achieved by TES to date and reflects the commitment of all TES staff members in ensuring that high standards are maintained as the company continues to grow.

The UVDB Verify audit and assessment is undertaken independently by Achilles and provides a rigorous assessment of a company’s risk critical issues, with a particularly strong focus on demonstrable compliance to Safety, Health, Environment, Quality and Corporate Social Responsibility requirements.

The reassessment took place via a comprehensive two-day audit of both on-site and off-site procedures. The detailed assessment focused on evaluating both the company’s in house health, safety, quality, environmental & CSR systems and also that of a recently completed site installation where site method statements, risk assessments, safe systems and site arrangements were assessed.

TES scored excellently throughout all areas assessed, awarded scores are detailed below.

Management System Evaluation Onsite Evaluation
Health & Safety 100% Health & Safety 99%
Environment 100% Environment 100%
Quality 100% Quality 100%
CSR 100% CSR 100%

Achilles accreditation is required by a number of the Utilities and their principal contractors. Over 30 Utilities and more than 35 of their contracting partners use the UVDB system to qualify their supply chain through a standard assessment of their management systems and site performance.

Commenting on the re-certification, John Crossan, TES SHEQ Manager said “as a company we are dedicated to a process of continuous improvement and are delighted that our efforts have once again been independently verified with excellent audit scores. All members of the TES team will strive to ensure that these high standards are maintained and exceeded in future.”
