Jackson Environmental Awarded Gold by ARCA in 2020

Jackson Environmental are extremely pleased to announce we have once again been awarded the ARCA Gold Site Audit Award 2020 & ARCA Gold Training Award 2020. 

ARCA Gold Site Audit Award 2020 

Awarded over 6 consecutive audits (approximating to a rolling 3 year period) the award demands consistent high standards from our team.

All ARCA audits have been unannounced since January 2017 ensuring the external auditors really do get a true picture of the quality of our work and the standards we set.

The ARCA auditing scheme supplements our own internal auditing programme superbly. Regular unannounced site auditing is carried out by our management team using an electronic safety management system. This allows us to measure performance on site and identify trends, competence and training needs. All of this information feeds back to a central dashboard informing our decision making and stimulating our team to achieve the safety, health, environmental & quality goals we set.

ARCA Gold Training 2020 

This is awarded to ARCA members who have achieved an average scoring of 92.5% or above across all delegates. Satish Patel, Training Manager at ARCA commented:

“This is a considerable achievement and you and your team should be justifiably pleased. It is testament to all your staff that have attained a higher than average score in training sessions to achieve this award” 

As ARCA members, all Jackson Environmental staff attend ARCA’s industry leading training courses. The covid-19 restrictions added new challenges to training this year but our team have shown excellent adaptability in undertaking a number of courses via remote learning with ARCA.

Asbestos removal

New HSE Licence to remove asbestos

Jackson Environmental are pleased to announce we have once again been granted a 3 year licence to remove asbestos by HSE (Health and Safety Executive). This continues our record of achieving the maximum renewal term since our first licence in 1991.

Asbestos Licensing is a ‘permissioning regime’ and is in addition to the general framework of health and safety law. Within a licensing regime, exemplary standards of health and safety management are expected. This means we must not only be able to carry out, and proactively manage, asbestos work safely but must also be able to demonstrate that to HSE.
