IDS are proud to announce that in a recent UVDB Verify audit by Achilles, we scored 100% across the board!
Over the last few years IDS have achieved consistently high scores, for several years scoring multiple 100% in the different categories, but this the first time we have had 100% across the board.
A UVDB Clean Sweep For IDS
At IDS we are mindful that our score is an indicator to our clients of how much we care about these four integral areas: Health and Safety, Corporate Social Responsibility, Environmental and Quality. Scores are published on the Achilles website and we know our clients use it during their procurement process, so a good score is imperative to the continued success of our business.
Managing Director, Blaise Ford comments: “The whole team have worked hard to achieve this 100% score in the UVDB audit, but none as much as our Safety, Health, Environment, & Quality Manager, Wayne Draper. We have been keen to keep improving our score year on year, to get 100% in every category is marvellous and Wayne and the rest of our team should be congratulated! Now we need to focus on maintaining this high standard.”

The audit not only involves checking our processes and proving we are complaint in each area at our Ilkeston facility, checks are also made with our engineers whilst they are at client’s sites.
SHEQ Manager Wayne Draper said: “Unlike other audits, where you have the chance to rectify issues with this audit you only get one chance to get it right. The score you achieve on the day will stay with you for the following 12 Months.”
It is a seal of approval that our internal policies and procedures are up to standard and very much at the forefront of everything we do.
