ISO14001 Environmental Management System
The future is in our hands
PVF Scaffolding Ltd take our Environmental Responsibility seriously and as such have committed to our ISO14001 Environmental Management Accreditation.
Since taking on ISO14001 alongside our Quality Management System, we have managed to reduce the travel time spent getting to and from projects significantly by implementing internal systems to manage the everyday movements of our network partners.
Outside of office hours we allow local residents to park their vehicles in our car park to reduce parking congestion in the surrounding area as well as allowing the use our address for deliveries as a local hub. This reduces the number of second delivery attempts or journeys to depots to collect. Residents are very grateful of this service which we provide for no charge.

Close relationship with Scaffold Network
Long term relationships to encourage good working practices
For a Scaffolding Contractor to become part of our network they first have to complete our online PQQ process, something that has been jointly put together with the assistance of our external Health & Safety advisors, Citation. These results are then vetted by our internal H&S Compliance Manager, and if approved, the company will then move onto a number of physical audits to confirm the quality of their operation.
Once a company is welcomed onto our Network they have access to our complete knowledge database, covering everything from Health & Safety and Human Resources through to advise on VAT and CIS Tax.
