Safety, Quality & Environmental (SQE) Performance

Health and safety is at the heart of everything we do and we work hard to ensure best practice across A-Gas ES Europe.

Safety

Our safety mission is to proactively commit to a Zero Harm culture where we question and challenge unsafe acts. We will never consider any aspect of our operation or administration more important than the health and safety of our employees, customers and guests.

We train our employees to think safely before acting and to do things safely the first time, so it will not be the last time. We work safely for ourselves and for our families, so we can go home in the same condition in which we arrived to work.

Quality

One of the ways A-Gas aims to meet its objectives is to constantly provide its customers with high quality products and services.

We depend on our customers and therefore understand their current and future needs, meet their requirements and strive to exceed their expectations.

To this end the company believes that it is necessary to adopt and remain community to quality standards such as ISO management systems and AHRI 700 specifications, as an essential framework for meeting our objectives.

In addition to these quality standards A-Gas is committed to environmental and health and safety standards across our group.

Our laboratories in the UK, Australia, South Africa, China and the Americas are compliant with AHRI 700 standards. This ensures that all refrigerants – virgin and reclaimed – meets the internationally recognised standard. 

Our laboratory testing services include:

  • Refrigerant identification
  • Purity
  • Moisture content
  • Acidity
  • Residue
  • Impurity levels
  • R40 (methyl chloride)

Our laboratories are key to our quality procedures. Test sampling is conducted throughout the reclamation process to guarantee our reclaimed material is fully compliant with the AHRI 700 specification worldwide.
