Aico receives Environmental Management Systems and Occupational Health and Safety Management certifications
Published on 12 August 2013
The much sought after BS EN ISO 14001:2004 for Environmental Management Systems and BS OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management certifications have been awarded to Aico, one of the UK's market leaders in domestic Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms.
Aico is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and has implemented a number of procedures to minimise energy usage and waste.
This has involved halving its landfill waste through the use of recycling bins throughout the warehouse and staff canteen, the purchase of an extra baler to compress waste shrink wrap from pallets which is then recycled, along with the use of energy efficient vehicles. Further actions, including reducing overall energy consumption at Aico's premises in Oswestry, Shropshire are also in development.
"The awarding of ISO 14001: 2004 is a welcome endorsement of Aico's green credentials and further proof of our commitment to sustainable, environmentally friendly operational procedures." States Barrie Ryan, Sales and Marketing Director of Aico. "18001 certification has been achieved at the same time, confirming our existing Health and Safety Management policy is robust and effective."
A wholly owned subsidiary of Ei Electronics, Aico is a market leader in residential fire protection in the UK. All alarms are designed and built in Europe specifically to meet the UK standards and regulations.
