A key area of our ethos is to strive to be a sustainable company.  At Certex we go beyond the standard industry regulations with our own in-house HSEQ department (health, safety, environment & quality).  

We are in good hands with our HSEQ manager who received the Cyril McCauley Trophy for best papers in the LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) correspondence courses, and her entry went on to win the Harry Brown Memorial Shield for Best Overall Paper of the national LEEA courses. She is the first woman in the history of the LEEA to have received this distinction.

Certex holds the following accreditation:
