HVAC manufacturer and service specialist Daikin Applied UK has successfully acquired a comprehensive range of health, safety, quality, and environmental accreditations for its contracting and service business.
J&E Hall, which trades as Daikin Applied Service (DAPS), is a member of the British Safety Council and has become a gold member of the Constructionline accreditation scheme that connects clients with safe and competent suppliers. The company has also achieved health & safety accreditation from Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) – the industry reassurance scheme for public and private sector buyers, which is supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
DAPS also holds CHAS Premium Plus and SafeContractor approved status and has successfully completed the SafeContractor pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) process administered by Alcumus. The latter establishes how a firm addresses key business issues including finance, the environment, equality, and diversity, GDPR and Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Meeting PQQ requirements in advance considerably simplifies and speeds up the procurement process by giving clients the necessary reassurance they need to appoint a contractor.
The company is also a member of the Achilles, UVDB and Community Certified schemes, which assess suppliers for their corporate social responsibility (CSR) as well as environmental management, legal, financial, health and safety record, reliability, and quality of service.
“We are extremely proud to hold this array of certifications, which provide independent third-party verified proof of our professionalism and technical competence. We have a strong top-down health and safety culture, which is supported by all our employees,” said DAPS service manager Glen Mason.
“The company has always taken its responsibilities to clients and the wider public very seriously; and these accreditations provide more evidence of the depth of investment we have put into keeping our engineers and business processes up-to-date and in line with regulatory requirements and the latest industry standards.”
