It’s been a busy several months here at EP Ecology, we’ve been working hard for our clients and delivering more projects than we dreamed we would.
However, in the background we’ve also been working on upgrading the performance of our business for the benefit of our staff, and for the benefit of our clients.
Here’s a short summary of the accreditations that we have gained recently.
We’ve had our CIEEM Registered Practice status renewed for 2022-2023. CIEEM Registered Practices are those organisations which work to a high standard in our discipline. This is both in respect of our professional practice, and in respect of how we operate and the skill level of our team.
We’ve achieved SSIP accreditation. This means that our businesses management of health and safety has met the standards that deem us to satisfy for this assessment. This accreditation helps to assure our clients that we operate in a safe way in our day-to-day business operations.
We’ve signed up to- and been audited by- Achilles. This gives clients in the private sector access to our information and is fully audited to ensure that we meet minimum qualification standards in our management of heath and safety, environmental management, and quality.
We’ve signed up to the prompt payment code to give our suppliers comfort that we pay on time, every time to ensure that other small businesses like ours continue to operate successfully and thrive.
Lastly, we have shown our commitment to our staff and associates by becoming accredited Living Wage Employers. This accreditation shows that we provide fair pay for fair work and gives our current, and prospective future employees, comfort that they will be paid fairly.
We consider ourselves to be a conscientious company, committed to the highest standards of practice as a business, and within our discipline so that we can deliver the best experience for our staff, and for our clients.
