Europump Maintenance H&S recognised with gold star

Europump Maintenance (EPM) has received a glowing health and safety review from Hanson Cement for work carried out at the client’s Ribblesdale site. With the account being a relatively new one for EPM, the team had to go on site to do a PPM (planned preventative maintenance) check. At the same time, a Europump engineer was on site to do a line test. During the visit, Hanson’s team carried out a spot check on EPM’s work.
Europump service engineer, Graham McAlister, said: “Ribblesdale is a big cement plant with a fuel island on site. While undertaking our work we had to ensure that we were protecting ourselves and the working area. Someone from Hanson came out on site with a clipboard to do a spot check and scored us for health and safety measures. They said they were absolutely over the moon with what we were doing and awarded us a gold star, which is their highest rating!”
Steven Bamford, workshop co-ordinator at Hanson UK’s Ribblesdale works, said: “We were very impressed with the Europump engineers, especially with how professional and organised they were with regards to isolating the area and making the work area safe for themselves and others.”
McAlister added: “It’s lovely to get feedback like this but what Hanson thought was impressive was actually normal for us!”
