Achilles UVDB Accreditation 2016

by Elizabeth Withington 19/02/2016 filed under General News


Geotechnical Engineering Ltd is very pleased to announce that again we have achieved accreditation through assessment for Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality practices and procedures, as a registered supplier on Achilles UVDB audit.


Achilles UVDB helps utility companies manage risk within their supply chain and comply with EU Procurement Legislation.  Geotechnical Engineering were audited under the higher level Verify B assessment which includes both a full management system audit along with an assessment of site operations.


The audit was carried out over two days. Our business management system, processes and procedures were audited on day one in our head office in Gloucester.  On day two our onsite audit covering Safety, Health, Environment and Quality was carried out this year in our yard, workshop and stores where we store and maintain our vehicles and equipment including servicing and welding procedures, and our physical testing laboratory.


Emma Lowe, Operation’s Director, is delighted to announce that our scores were 98% for our office based systems and 98% for our site based activities.  She commented that as the UKs largest independently owned ground investigation company it is very important for us to maintain an excellent UVDB accreditation score to deliver quality integrated services to the utility sector.
