MAIDENHEAD, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- As the organisation representing UK's producers of Aggregates, Asphalt, Cement, Concrete, Dimension stone, Lime, Mortar and Silica Sand, the Mineral Products Association (MPA) has selected PICS to deliver an industry wide contractor prequalification database programme, for their Producer members. The MPA chose to adopt PICS' prequalification programme based on their renowned supplier audit service.

Nigel Jackson, Chief Executive MPA, said: "MPA members need to be able to demonstrate contractors' and sub-contractors' competence with the same degree of rigour as if the contractors were directly employed. It is in recognition of the key role that contractors play in the achievement of Zero Harm, that we have developed and launched 'Safer by Partnership.'"

PICS is delighted to be supporting them at this critical time and most importantly in improving health & safety across their industry," said Ian McKinnon, Exec Director, PICS EMEA. "At PICS, our supplier audit service is designed to short-circuit the paths to identifying safe and sustainable suppliers, so that the industry can optimise its efficiency in contributing toward the UK economy."
