The quality and safety of our temporary lifts must be guaranteed at all times. Certification programs, in collaboration with a notified body, are mandatory. The ‘Lift Institute’ is a notified body and certifies and approves based on European legislation. Certifications helps to avoid claims in case of calamities. A certificate indicates that you comply to all legal requirements. Not only governments but also the users pay attention to them. The market prefers recognized safety.
VCA: VCA stands for Safety Checklist Contractors (Health, Safety and Environment) and asks entrepreneurs to adjust their policy to the field of health, safety and environment. It is a versatile program which allows structural and objective testing of service oriented companies on their safety-, health- and environmental management systems. Safety is our highest priority. This means that all our operational staff are VCA certified. In addition, they have the required personal protective equipment. RECO Lift Solutions has a VCA* certificate.
BTR: BTR stands for: Industry-specific Explanation Rail Infrastructure (Branchegerichte Toelichting Railinfrastructuur) and is a quality label supplementary to the VCA to ensure safe working practices on railway tracks.
In obtaining the BTR, RECO Lift Solutions has shown that the relevant management system does not only cover general occupational safety, but extends to occupational safety specifically in relation to the railroad system.
The policy was formulated in a management system that is in accordance with the requirements imposed by the Safety, Health and Environmental system integrated into the VCA* standard.
ProRail’s Industry-specific Explanation Rail Infrastructure was implemented to accommodate work on the rail infrastructure.
