Engineer Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)All our personnel are supplied with appropriate PPE including work area barriers, first aid kits and fire extinguishers. All PPE equipment and tools are subject to pre-use and scheduled inspections and calibration certificates, where applicable, are available from the attending engineer.
Point of Work Risk AssessmentsAs well as providing a general Risk Assessment for your site, our iPad based system allows our engineers to carry out a job specific Risk Assessment on site. Only when safety control measures are in place and it is safe to proceed will the work be carried out. A copy of the completed assessment is included in the engineer’s service report.
Environment: UKAS ISO 14001Operating in accordance with our UKAS ISO 14001 accreditation, we ensure our business activities have minimal environmental impact, we maintain registration with the Environment Agency and comply with all environmental legislation associated with our industry. Any non-hazardous waste materials produced by the works we undertake are normally handed to the customer on completion of the works. However when requested, we can remove waste from your site for you in accordance with our EA waste registration status. All reclaimed refrigerant is returned to our refrigerant suppliers in reclaim cylinders, who ensure their return to their suppliers for recycling or disposal as appropriate. We also ensure that that prior to the disposal of failed compressors all refrigerant and oil is removed and dealt with appropriately. We can also help with your F-Gas legislation compliance. Records of all refrigerant removals, charges, leak tests and Hazardous Waste Consignment Notes are held and can be viewed on demand via AGGORA online – offering you traceability, environmental control and above all peace of mind.
