Health & Safety - It's always better to be safe than sorry!

17 Mar 2021

We all know that we must be careful in everything we do in life, from crossing the road, driving a car to cooking your evening meal. You don’t want to obviously get run over, bump into a wall or burn yourself on the cooker.

But when you work in industrial refrigeration, this being a naturally high-risk job, daily you need to operate as safely as you can and abide by the rules. That is why as a company we take health & safety as a very serious matter.

One way that we can demonstrate that fact, is that we have been accredited by the Alcumus Safe Contractor Association for many years. We are annually audited, and during this process of auditing, we must demonstrate how we can operate safely, and really show that health & safety is paramount for our engineers and for our clients too.

All our jobs are risk assessed, and all our engineers are trained in many areas, from manual handling, working at heights, City & Guilds Handling of Refrigerants, F-Gas, Breathing Apparatus, BA Face Fit, to working in confined spaces as just a few examples because the list is extensive.

So why is it important to use a contractor that has been awarded the Alcumus Safe Contractor Accreditation?

Well, these accreditations are not just given out, not only have we had to prove that we operate to an industry standard of health and safety, but also that as a company we abide by and operate equal opportunities, diversity, and environmentally managed systems.

So, if you are looking for a new refrigeration company for your next project that has high standards, why not give us a call on 0161 724 0357 or drop us an email at We will be happy to discuss your requirements, and you will know that you have a trusted, reliable, safe contractor company by your side.
