Rock Power Connections achieves 100% in Achilles Audit for Third Year Running
September 9, 2020
Rock Power Connections is delighted to announce it has achieved full marks in its latest Achilles audit for the third year running. As the utility industry’s leading accreditation scheme, Achilles independently audits an organisation’s Health, Safety, Environment and Quality management systems, together with its approach to Corporate Social Responsibility.
This year’s examination process was a little different to the previous years. The Achilles Verify B2 Audit was completed virtually, with Rock Power Connections sharing documents with the auditor via Zoom.
Rock Power Connections is proud to announce a clean sweep in scoring 100% in Quality, Environment and Health & Safety in both the office and on site.
These outstanding results were achieved through the collaborative effort within the Rock Power Connections team. Although the audit had to be carried out under different circumstances this year, the team were able to illustrate how safety, quality and environment are firmly embedded within Rock’s daily processes and procedures.
In fact, the challenges experienced as a result of COVID-19 have led to Rock Power Connections focusing even more on the importance of health and safety, where the team has worked extremely hard to ensure the premises and work sites remain COVID secure.
Jenny Parkes, who led this year’s audit, said: “Our auditor had undertaken an Achilles audit with us before, so he was already aware of our company and had previously viewed a vast amount of evidence that illustrates our high level of compliance across all categories.
"We were all prepared for the site audit to actually take place on site but our Achilles auditor had to self-isolate so that too was undertaken via Zoom. Rock's Site Manager - Dan Turner - was on site, but our Health & Safety Consultant - Lee Hayman - and Rock's SHEQ Manager - John Lampitt - joined from their respective homes. It was a site audit conducted from many locations!
“We are delighted to uphold our 100% record for the third year in a row and even more delighted that we were able to virtually demonstrate our commitment to maintaining an extremely high standard of safety and quality across the business”.
