The SafeContractor scheme is designed to review and audit the health and safety policies, procedures and documentation of contractors. Qualified auditors conduct audits that identify whether there is suitable and sufficient health and safety compliance within a business. The scheme reduces the need to submit multiple health and safety pre-qualification questionnaires to clients.
PEME has a robust safety infrastructure and is an approved SafeContractor and this demonstrates our health and safety compliance to our clients.
The British Safety Council is one of the world’s leading health, safety and environmental organisations. Their vision is that no-one should be killed, injured or made ill by their work. Safe working is of paramount importance to PEME and therefore, we are members of this council to ensure we are at the forefront of safety initiatives.
The NICEIC Approved Contractor scheme is for electrical contractors undertaking design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of electrical installations to BS 7671.
PEME has been assessed against a specific set of competency requirements, in particular the national electrical safety standard BS 7671 the IEE Wiring Regulations.
Membership of the scheme demonstrates our competence to perform industrial electrical installations in accordance with BS 7671.
PEME is a member of the Institute of Asset Management. The IAM is the professional body for those involved in acquisition, operation and care of physical assets; especially critical infrastructure. In particular, the institute is for professionals worldwide who are dedicated to furthering their knowledge and understanding of engineering asset management.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering community. The IET provides a global knowledge network to facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote the positive role of engineering in the world.
PEME is an IET Business Partner. This network helps us to improve by promoting and developing knowledge and professionalism amongst our staff, building their skills and abilities. Many of our engineers are individual members of the IET and are registered as Incorporated or Chartered Engineers through the IET with the Engineering Council.
Based upon the IEC Standards, primarily 60079: 10; 14 & 17, CompEx is competency validation and certification for electrotechnical and mechanical craftspersons working in potentially hazardous or explosive atmospheres.
Potentially explosive atmospheres occur in petrochemical plants and refining plants. They are also found in distilleries, paint spraying plants, flourmills, woodworking machine plants, the water industry and petrol & fuel forecourt environments. Failure to ensure safe working practices in these circumstances could result in the ignition of explosive gases or dust clouds leading to injury or even fatalities.
PEME competency for working in these environments is demonstrated by our engineers being certificated to the CompEx scheme.
The purpose of the CCNSG Safety Passport training programme is to ensure that all personnel, working or going on-site, have a basic knowledge of health and safety, after appropriate site induction, to work on-site more safely with lower risk to themselves and others. After successfully completing a two-day training course individuals are awarded a ‘Safety Passport’ which is then valid for three years.
We have a robust safety infrastructure and we ensure individual PEME engineers attend this safety training programme. This helps to improve health and safety awareness and promote safer working.
