Audits are not our Achilles heel…

The Erith Group have recently undergone an Achilles UVDB verify audit and assessment, and we are pleased to announce that we have passed the process with flying colours.

Achilles UVDB provides a transparent, equal and fair means of supplier selection for potential schemes. Moreover, it enables utility companies to manage risks within their supply chain and comply with EU Procurement legislation.

A rigorous two-day audit took place, with assessments conducted both on and off-site. Following this stringent evaluation, we are delighted to report the below exemplary scores:

Management System Evaluation:

  • Health and Safety – 96%
  • Environment – 100%
  • Quality – 100%
  • Corporate Social Responsibility – 100%

On-site Assessment:

  • Health and Safety – 100%
  • Environment – 100%
  • Quality – 100%
  • Corporate Social Responsibility – 100%

Our complex demolition, structural alteration and strip-out scheme at Premier Place, London was assessed as part of the process. The auditor commented on the high standard of the site and site offices, as well as the level of detail included within the scheme’s Safe System of Works.

James Hiom, SHEQ Director, commented: “This impressive result, including an increased score in the management system evaluation by four percent, is a testament to our ability and drive to improve. Our practice remains at the forefront of all safety, health, environmental, quality and social standards through top-level external verification like this.”
