Top marks for Hodgson Sayers in Achilles B2 Audit

Construction and building maintenance specialist, Hodgson Sayers, has, for the third year in a row, gained 100% success in one of the industry’s most demanding audits.

The Achilles B2 Audit demonstrates third party validation of a company’s internal management systems and onsite assessment.

John Sayers, managing director at Hodgson Sayers, which, in 2015 was crowned British Chambers of Commerce national company of the year, said: “We operate in a highly regulated and demanding sector in which we are audited up to 10 times a year on numerous aspects of the business, including the Achilles B2 Audit.

“By undertaking a B2 Audit, we demonstrate and confirm our credentials to potential clients and our supply chain while, at the same time, continually raising standards.

“The marking stipulated a well-defined process that is documented, demonstrable and evidenced with appropriate records across all criteria. The preparation for the audits is a busy time, especially for our administrative division which works tirelessly to ensure all information is in order.

“The team demonstrated that senior management takes a proactive role in keeping records of all workers standard and ensuring there is a system in place so that training certificates and licences held by individuals are checked and validated on a regular basis.

“Over a two day period our quality, environment, health and safety management systems are all evaluated. In addition, the audit also focuses on sustainability, corporate social responsibility and carbon management.

“To achieve 100% success for the third year running is testament to the dedication and hard work of all involved. It is a result of our teams working collaboratively and frequently reviewing our systems.

“We are dedicated to being an employer of choice and the high standards we demand within our workplace reflects our commitment to our people.”
