Beech Group have almost 30 years of continuous presence at the Stanlow Oil Refinery. As part of new site owner Essar`s drive to ensure that all their sub-contractors meet their exacting Health, Safety and Environmental requirements they now require that suppliers seek registration on Achilles FPAL. This is a rigorous process that requires all specialist sub-contractors and suppliers in the oil and gas industry to meet the required standards in (Health, Safety and Environmental), and which also includes further specifics in Training and Competence. We completed the Initial and Advanced Suppliers Questionnaire progressing to the external two day audit stage, which we passed with flying colours. Beech Group were informed by the auditor that we received one of the best scores for an initial audit that he had ever seen.
We have also successfully achieved full certification to OHSAS 18001. This now sits proudly alongside the company`s other external certifications to ISO 9001 (Quality Management System) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management Systems).
These accreditations involve a lot of work and Leon Stanger takes the credit there for heading up the initiative.
