Gee Dee Tankers gets a helping hand towards industry landmark

A TANKER firm has received a helping hand towards an industry landmark.

Graythorp Industrial Estate-based Gee Dee Tankers, a waste management firm, are being fast-tracked towards important accreditations thanks to another Hartlepool firm.

It is working towards the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certificates which could bring it major benefits such as more contracts.

But to win the accreditation, companies must show their health and safety and environmental processes are top drawer.

C & A Safety Solutions, the training arm of C & A Pumps and Engineering, stepped in. Owner Alan Roberts said: “We know how hard a process it can be for companies to properly document all the evidence needed to be considered for the ISO accreditations so we do it all for them.”

He said the link-up was “mutually beneficial as they’ve now asked us to re-write their health and safety policy and we call on their services if we need waste removing from a site we’re working on.”

Evan Edwards, site manager at Gee Dee Tankers said: “Since we started working with Alan and his team the whole process has been simplified and we’re confident we’ll secure the ISO accreditations in the near future.”
