Accreditations

ALRO are proud to have been certified by a number of key industry accreditation schemes. Details of the schemes with which we are accredited can be found below.


 

Achilles UVDB

Achilles UVDB is the community for the UK utilities industry.

It enables the utilities sector to use Achilles' proven supplier pre-qualification system to manage risk within the supply chain and comply with EU regulations.

Launched in 1996, Achilles UVDB is the largest Achilles community that is also used by the airports and ports sector. Achilles UVDB is managed by a Steering Group comprising of utility buyers to drive industry best practice.


CHAS (Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme)

ALRO Services Ltd has been awarded accreditation from the Contractors Health & Safety Scheme for its commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety.

CHAS is the government accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

ALRO Services is principally involved in the Sewage & Waste Water Treatment sector, ALRO’s most recent clients have included major players such as The Home Office, The Duchy of Cornwall, The National Trust & the Caravan Club.

The company’s application for CHAS accreditation was driven by the need for a uniform standard across the business.

CHAS accreditation will enhance the company’s ability to attract new contracts and its commitment to safety will be viewed positively by its insurers when the company liability policy is up for renewal.

Under the CHAS 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.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.


Constructionline

Constructionline is the UK’s leading procurement and supply chain management service that collects, assesses and monitors standard company information through a question set that is aligned to PAS 91, the standardised pre-qualification questionnaire developed by BSI to reduce duplication within the construction industry.

Their aim is to provide efficiency savings to public and private sector buyers and the construction industry as a whole by streamlining procurement procedures and improving the supply chain management processes by reducing risk, creating cost efficiencies and helping buyers engage with new suppliers, including SMEs and local companies.


British Water

In 1993, the merger of two trade associations BEWA (British Effluent and Water Associaton) and BWIG (British Water Industries Group) saw the creation of British Water, which has become the leading trade association representing the interests of the water and wastewater industry in the UK and overseas.

British Water lobbies governments and regulators on behalf of its members and provides vital information on home and overseas water and wastewater markets - how much is being spent, by whom, where, when, how and on what.

As well as actively promoting best practice, British Water represents the interests of the UK water and wastewater industry on UK and European regulations and legislation, terms and conditions of contract and procurement practice, and in the creation of European and International Standards.

There are a large number of small sewage treatment plants of differing designs and ages across the country.  The Environment Agency (EA) in England & Wales, SEPA in Scotland and EHS in Northern Ireland are showing increasing concern about the potential amount of pollution these plants could cause.

One of the primary ways of preventing this pollution is to ensure that the plant is properly and correctly maintained.

British Water has been working closely with the environmental regulators to develop a training and accreditation scheme for service engineers.  The regulators regard this as an important step in the prevention of pollution.

Accreditation:
The training course is supported by a questionnaire which is independently assessed.  Success in the questionnaire leads to accreditation, and the issue of the "Qualified Service Engineer" certificate and identity card.  Accreditation is valid for three years, and illustrates that the engineer is skilled in servicing small sewage treatment plant.

The overall aim is to ensure that the service engineer has a thorough understanding of the types, theory and operation of small sewage treatment plant.

An Accredited Service Engineer can be relied upon to ensure your package treatment plant functions in line with current regulations.


Safecontractor

Safecontractor is a leading third party accreditation scheme which recognises very high standards in health and safety management amongst UK contractors.

Safecontractor plays a vital role in supporting our clients in meeting their compliance needs, whilst working with their contractors as they progress through the accreditation process.”

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.

Client-organisations who sign up to the scheme can access the database, enabling them to vet potential contractors before they even set foot on site. These clients agree that, as users of the scheme, they will engage only those who have received accreditation.
