First Response Group, the site security and fire risk specialists, have been successfully awarded Achilles BuildingConfidence accreditation proving reliability, demonstrating compliance and showing commitment to risk mitigation.
Launched in 2007 in collaboration with Lend Lease, Achilles BuildingConfidence is recognised as the industry standard for supplier excellence within the construction and infrastructure industry. The Achilles community allows Building Contractors to monitor and evaluate their supply chains, minimising risk and streamlining procurement. For suppliers, such as FRG, it is a unique opportunity to connect with key industry players by demonstrating compliance and improvement against leading standards of excellence.
Jamal Tahlil, Managing Director at FRG comments: ‘We are delighted to have meet Achilles specific BuildingConfidence requirements. The legislative and risk reduction needs of the construction industry have become increasingly challenging and this accreditation demonstrates our commitment to reach beyond the highest level of industry requirements in areas such as health, safety, environmental management and compliance.’
As part of the Achilles BuildingConfidence programme FRG will undergo annual independent audits benchmarking against the latest industry best practise to ensure continuous improvements to processes and policies, whilst maintaining the highest standards of ethics.
