SMAS Worksafe Certificate

Categories:

Adept GRP are pleased to have successfully gained renewal of our SMAS Worksafe Certificate. This means that we have met the SSIP core criteria recognised by the HSE and other SSIP accreditation schemes. Meeting the SSIP Core Criteria demonstrates that we are serious about H&S and have an effective H&S Management System to ensure that any work we are engaged in is, so far as reasonably practical, carried out without risk to Health and Safety.

Such systems ensure our Site Installation Crews are trained to operate in a safe manner, many of our GRP Enclosures are delivered in Panel Form and then assembled on Site by our Site Crews. Adept GRP Enclosures are assembled and then collapsed at our works to ensure a smooth assembly on Site, thus keeping any potential issues to the absolute minimum. An average Installation will be completed within three days although this is dependent on Site conditions and access to the Concrete Pad on which the Enclosure will sit. GRP Cabinets from our Standard Range are normally delivered by National Carrier with installation, which is an easy process, being arranged or undertaken by the Customer. Our Standard Range of GRP Electrical Cabinets are hugely popular and can be purchased direct or via your local Electrical Wholesaler.
