Health and safety is at the heart of everything we do, and we are committed to demonstrating best practice across the AFK business.
In delivering our services, we recognise that we will have an impact on the surrounding environment and that risks will arise. We, therefore, accept as our moral duty the need to take all practical steps to prevent harm to any person or to the environment. It is the responsibility of every AFK employee, contractor or guest whilst working on or off-site to co-operate with management to prevent injury to themselves and others and to help improve safety, quality and environmental (SQE) performance.
Our safety mission is to proactively commit to a Zero Harm culture where we question and challenge unsafe acts. We will never consider any aspect of our operation or administration more important than the health and safety of our employees, customers and guests.
We train our employees to think about safety before acting and to do things safely the first time, so it will not be the last time. We work safely for ourselves and for our families, so we can go home in the same condition in which we arrived at work.
AFK consistently provides its customers with high-quality products and services.
We work in partnership with our customers and understand their current and future needs, meet their requirements and strive to exceed their expectations.
To this end, the company believes that it is necessary to adapt and remain committed to quality standards such as ISO requirements and AHRI 700 specifications as an essential framework for meeting our objectives.
In addition to these quality standards, AFK is committed to environmental and health and safety standards across our business worldwide.
Our laboratories in Europe and across the globe are compliant with AHRI 700 standards. This ensures that all refrigerants – virgin and reclaimed – meet the internationally recognised standard.
AFK is a responsible business that supports and actively operates to minimise our impact on the environment. We are committed to meeting and exceeding expectations on regulatory and other best practice environmental requirements. We work on continually improving our environmental management systems by preventing pollution and minimising the creation of waste.
We design our processes, create materials and train our people in the most efficient way in order to reduce the environmental impact associated with our work.
