Advanced Ergonomic Technologies Ltd (AET); manufacturer and supplier of the AET Flexible Space Under Floor Air Conditioning (UFAC) system, has successfully renewed its third party accreditation from Safecontractor for its commitment to achieving high standards in health and safety across its maintenance contracts.
AET has been involved in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) sector for more than twenty years, specialising in the distribution of Under Floor Air Conditioning equipment. Although not a specialist contractor, AET regularly carries out commissioning and re-commissioning services for supplied equipment, and have built up a Service and Maintenance department around their project success. AET have a number of UFAC installations still operating well after fifteen to twenty years of operation, with little or no modifications to the original specification.
The safecontractor accreditation enhances the company’s ability to attract new service and maintenance contracts and its commitment to safety is viewed positively by its clients and insurers. Safecontractor is applicable to most sectors although it is particularly relevant to construction activity, where there are large amounts of contracted services.
John Kinge, technical director of safecontractor said, “Major organisations simply cannot afford to run the risk of employing contractors who are not able to prove that they have sound health and safety policies in place.” Under the Safecontractor scheme, businesses undergo a vetting process which examines health and safety procedures and their track record for safe practice. Those companies meeting the high standard are included on a database, which is accessible to registered users only via a website.
Lucy Jeffrey, Marketing Manager at AET, comments; “We are delighted to receive this accreditation renewal at a time when we are actively developing the Service and Maintenance activity as part of our UK business. This status is essential for working with many leading Contractors and helps promote our reputation in the marketplace as a specialist maintainer of our Under Floor Air Conditioning systems.”
