Customers of Abraxas can rest assured knowing the company is now overseen by a government-sponsored third-party committee that puts a huge emphasis on health and safety procedures. In addition to Abraxas’ health and safety policy statement, the company’s organisation for health and safety and specific health and safety arrangements will have been evaluated as part of the CHAS assessment process and will continue to be assessed annually. This gives assurance to customers that work carried out by Abraxas is completed to current health and safety standards and completed in a professional manner, on time and within the agreed budget.
