MPA Appoints PICS to Deliver Its National Contractors Database

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 demonstrated that their services, within our industry, were the best suited to providing MPA with their supplier prequalification service," said Martin Isles, Director, Health & Safety, MPA. "Importantly, the PICS service, software and their approach to customer management, meant they were best placed to deliver a first class service, that meets the needs of our 'Safer by Partnership' programme in the most cost effective manner."

"The MPA has taken the lead to reduce contractor injuries and the incidence of ill health; and ultimately to achieve the target of Zero Harm. 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."

PICS is a global contractor management consortium committed to improving Health, Safety and Quality. PICS' prequalification and auditing services have become the standard in many industries, including: Chemical, Construction, Energy, Food & Beverage, Oil & Gas, Mining, Manufacturing, Pulp & Paper and Pharmaceutical. Access to thousands of vendors' prequalification information is housed online at www.PICSauditing.com. Founded in 2003 as an organisation dedicated to safety, PICS is the fastest-growing, full-service contractor prequalification company worldwide. PICS is headquartered in Irvine, California, with offices in Houston, Texas; Calgary, Canada; Abu Dhabi, UAE; Johannesburg, South Africa; Maidenhead, U.K.; Munich, Germany; Paris, France; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Sydney, Australia; Singapore; Tokyo, Japan and Hong Kong, China.
