Recent Success – Achilles UVDB Category B2

STEM Drive is pleased to announce its recent success in achieving Achilles UVDB Category B2 Verify


The UVDB Verify audit and assessment is undertaken independently by Achilles and provides a rigorous assessment of a company’s risk critical issues with a particularly strong focus on demonstrable compliance to Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ) requirements.

The assessment took place via a comprehensive two-day audit of both on-site and off-site procedures. The detailed assessment focused on evaluating both the company’s in house health, safety, quality and environmental systems and also that of a recently completed site installation where site method statements, risk assessments, safe systems and site arrangements were assessed.
STEM Drive received a good percentage increase in the following areas:
Management System Evaluation

Health and Safety   -76.1%
Environmental         -5.6%
Quality                        -82.0%
Onsite Assessment
Health and Safety   -87.7%
Environmental        -83.3%
Quality                      – 83.0%
