A&G’s best practice earns H&S standard

Acheson & Glover (A&G) Group, a leading manufacturer of premium quality hard landscaping and precast concrete products, has been recommended for accreditation to the health & safety standard OHSAS 18001:2007. The recommendation follows successful independent audits encompassing A&G’s manufacturing, quarrying and precast installations.

OHSAS 18001:2007 is an international occupational health and safety management system that provides a framework to control health and safety risks and improve the health and safety of employees.

Patrick Sherry, Health & Safety and Environmental Manager for A&G comments: “The auditors complimented our team on the high standards of safety awareness across all our operations. No stone was left unturned as the auditors conducted a detailed review of our written procedures, operational controls, leading metrics and improvement initiatives, as well as in-depth employee interviews and observations of work practices.”

Group Chief Executive Raymond Acheson adds: “This recommendation demonstrates the care we take at every level of our business, from quarry to end consumer. Our attention to detail in everything that we do has ensured this recognition, building on our successful achievement of the Environmental International Standard ISO 14001. Architects, specifiers and builders’ merchants can trust that A&G will always apply best practices.”
