PEL Services has been awarded BS EN ISO 14001:2004 certification for Environmental Management Systems
The much sought after BS EN ISO 14001:2004 certification for Environmental Management Systems has been awarded to PEL Services Limited for its design, supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance services for public address, fire alarm, security and communications equipment.
PEL 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 reusing 90% of all packaging material, the use of energy efficient vehicles and logical planning of service visits within a localised area to reduce journey times, fuel usage and emissions.
To ensure the correct disposal and control of used materials, PEL Services has been granted a registered Waste Carriers Certificate from the UK Environmental Agency. This certificate allows all PEL vans to carry waste materials from customers’ premises to the appropriate recycling depot.
Managing Director Ken Faulks comments on his company’s achievement: “Staff at PEL have worked hard to reach this goal. We have taken the approach that every little helps and that every individual has a role to play in reducing our impact on the environment. As a company we have also looked at the bigger picture, ensuring in house and third party recycling facilities are used to full effect and that our vehicle fleet operates at maximum efficiency.
“The awarding of ISO 14001 : 2004 is a welcome endorsement of PEL’s green credentials and further proof of our commitment to sustainable, environmentally friendly operational procedures.”
For over 35 years PEL Services Limited has been a leading UK systems company designing, supplying, installing and commissioning sound, fire, security & communications systems. In addition PEL provides a range of service agreements including routine maintenance and fully comprehensive cover, on third party equipment as well as PEL systems, throughout the UK and Eire.
