Future Industrial Services delivers optimal hazardous waste management and industrial cleaning services to a variety of industries from seven sites in the UK. From the oil and gas sector to utilities, this organisation offers multiple services to help companies maintain a safe and sustainable work environment.
Matthew Blake, Technical and Compliance Director at Future Industrial Services, explained how an EHS solution has allowed the organisation to standardise procedures and processes across all seven sites, gain greater visibility into safety metrics, and mitigate risks faster. This has allowed them to create a more proactive approach to safety which helps to effectively protect their employees and clients.
“You can’t manage what you can’t see,” said Matthew. “The biggest benefit of using this system is having the ability to see what people are reporting in real time, which gives us the ability to intervene when necessary, allowing us to decrease the frequency of adverse events.”
Augean Ltd., the UK’s leading specialist waste management business, recently completed the acquisition of Future Industrial Services Limited which is now part of the Augean Group. The Augean Group, headquartered in Wetherby, will now operate from over 21 sites across the UK. This enhanced footprint will allow the company to work more closely with customers to achieve the best environmental outcomes for their waste, through an increased spectrum of capabilities.
Following the acquisition of Future Industrial Services, the combined business will offer a more diverse range of recycling, recovery, treatment, and disposal services for hard-to-handle wastes underpinned by a network of strategically located sites.
Augean uses robust HSEQ systems; however, it recognises the value of a harmonised system across the Group. Part of the integration of the business will involve the sharing of the EHS software across the wider Group, which will present a new set of challenges; however, the experience that Future Industrial Services has in using this digital software will smooth that journey to allow for a consistent way of reporting.
