“The AOS Scheme provides independent quarry operators with a unique and comprehensive framework for checking their sites compliance with the Quarries Regulations. Having gone through the process for 2 sites, it breaks down the legislation into bitesize and manageable chunks of legislation which can be worked through systematically both in the lead up to, and during the accreditation audit.”
William Thompson & Son (Dumbarton) Ltd have gone through the AOS scheme and have felt the benefits across the organisation. The scheme requires you to look at your systems under a microscope and evaluate if they are fit for purpose and where there is room for improvement. This led to several improvements being made across the board which were invaluable to us as an organisation.
