News – Pointer Achieves Perfect Audit Scores in Achilles Verify Reaccreditation
Pointer is pleased to announce its recent success in achieving 100% scores across the board during our reassessment for Achilles UVDB Category B2 Verify Accreditation. Achilles accreditation is required by many major Utilities sector companies and their principal contractors. Over 80 organisations and more than 1,500 of their contracting partners use the UVDB system to qualify their supply chain through a standard assessment of their management systems and site performance.
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 and Quality (SHEQ) 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 and environmental systems and also that of a recently completed site installation where site method statements, risk assessments, safe systems and site arrangements were assessed.
The below chart highlights our continual improvement in these rigorous assessments:
