2019 is already turning into a busy year here at Fairburn Heating Solutions. We’ve introduced some structural changes to increase our field service capacity as our customer base continues to grow.
Within the team, James has passed his LPG gas ACS qualification, and completed a ME12 Mechanical to Electrical Conversion course. Danny and Martin, our trainees have completed their basic gas safety courses & portfolios of evidence and will be sitting their ACS gas exams March and April.
With a growing team and increasing expertise, we’re looking forward to supporting more customers this year.
Top Safety Accreditation for Fairburn Heating Solutions
We have been awarded 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.
Our application for SafeContractor accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business. SafeContractor accreditation will enhance our ability to win new contracts, and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by our insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.
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 Fairburn Heating Solutions 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.”
