Environment and Safety

Safety, quality and environmental certification

Vecom gives safety, quality and the environment the highest priority when carrying out its work. To guarantee these safety and environmental requirements, Vecom has a management system that is certified according to ISO 9001: 2015.

Working with hazardous substances and risk related environments requires strict procedures, standards and rules of conduct. Vecom works closely with the Environment Agency and United Utilities to ensure compliance across the board.

Safety for people and the environment

Safety, the environment, quality and cleanliness is put first by Vecom. In this context, the prevention of incidents and dangerous situations with possible personal injury, material and environmental damage, by taking preventive measures, is of the utmost importance and has priority over all other business objectives.

Should incidents occur, Vecom's policy is aimed at reducing the potential effects on people and the environment and preventing similar incidents from reoccurring.

Vecom knows how chemistry works. 
That is why Vecom also takes its responsibility.

Waste water treatment

In order to minimize the impact of released waste streams on the environment, Vecom adheres to the strict codes of practice which are clearly stated in their environment agency permit. The waste and residual streams are treated on site to neutralise any acid prior to discharge.

The remaining solid waste is disposed of via an accredited waste processor and all documents stored for compliance with our environmental permit.

Innovation

Vecom continues to search for more people- and environmentally friendly solutions and we are challenged daily by our customers, suppliers and government agencies to develop safer and environmentally friendly products and services, both for users and all other stakeholders.
