McGowan Hits 100% in Achilles UVDB Verify Audit

11 August 2021

We are delighted to have passed the Achilles UVDB Verify (Category B2) audit with a score of 100% across all subject areas.

The two-day audit took place earlier this month and McGowan Environmental Engineering were assessed on internal management systems, on-site processes and operational procedures. The audit saw the company successfully achieve an overall score of 100% in Health & Safety, Environment, Quality and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

Various members of the McGowan team were involved and supported Brian Elliott (HSEQ Manager) throughout the audit process. Brian was delighted with how the audit went and commented:

“As a business we take great pride in working to the highest standards and this result is just reward for the hard work and dedication shown by colleagues across the company. It’s another great achievement for McGowan and we’ll continue to review our processes, procedures and policies to ensure compliance with legislation and industry standards.“
