I have used Morgan Lamberts QA auditing services for the past 8 years in various roles that I have managed within the gas industry, this is mostly due to their expertise within the gas industry as a market leader for safety and compliance.
I have also used their services at Peaks & Plains where we brought the gas servicing & maintenance contract in house, they provided valuable assistance with their reviews on our policies and procedures and all TUPE transfer of staff.
The QA auditors and management on our contracts have always been approachable, knowledgeable and are willing to listen if there are challenges to decisions on defects and will always keep a balanced view.
Regular contract meetings are held with all levels of management at Morgan Lambert, ensuring visibility and a willingness to approach them on all aspects of the contract.
The portal that we have access to provides in depth reports, pictures of defects and important information detailing each engineers performance, allowing our compliance team to monitor and increase any further auditing if required with this information to hand.
