Congratulations to Rob Lunn our Projects Engineer who has passed his IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety and Health) Managing Safely course.
This qualification gives managers and supervisors the skills and training necessary to best manage health and safety in the workplace.
Managing Safely shows candidates how to assess and control risks and hazards whilst also making sure that candidates know their own responsibilities towards health and safety. It also teaches how to investigate accidents, assess performances and reflect on good practices.
The Managing Safely qualification enables Rob to produce high quality RAMS (Risk and Method Statements) for the work that we do on sites, enabling risks to be identified and control measures put in place.
As a company, APS UK strives to achieve the highest workplace standards of health and safety. We make sure our staff have all the relevant and appropriate training in order to fulfil their roles to their best potential.
At APS UK we specialise in dust and fume control systems and pneumatic conveying. Our experienced engineers can design and install a bespoke system for you or test and modify an existing one to ensure it is running to its full capabilities.

This month marks the first anniversary for APS UK Ltd in our new building. It has been a really exciting year for us. In terms of staff we have almost doubled our number and are currently also advertising for another new role. By next March the company will have been trading for 20 years, and this year will have been its most successful and progressive.
The pictures show our new offices both before the inner build work started and currently. We had our new office designed and built, allowing us to get something that was just right for our needs, giving us a modern two-floor office and a warehouse to store our stock in. This year has also seen us take delivery of a new van for our site services engineer, complete with the new company livery, which you may have seen on the roads as it has already been driven all over the country to the many sites we work on.
Kayleigh, one of our office staff who joined full time this year, described working here as, “A great opportunity to get in to an expanding business at the ground level and have the chance to develop your own role.” One of the advantages we have of being a small team is that everyone has an overview of all the work we do, and it also allows each team member to have a significant impact within the company.
Throughout the year we have also been investing in training, to ensure our staff have the correct and up-to-date qualifications and knowledge; guaranteeing we deliver the best services we can. Our staff have completed First Aid courses, SSSTS Qualifications, Advanced Excel, IPAF training, and IOSH courses.
At APS UK we specialise in dust and fume extraction systems, pneumatic conveying systems and Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) testing and servicing. If your company has processes that produce dust, mist, fume, gas or vapour there could be a risk to your staff. This is where we can help design and install a bespoke system to help minimise any exposure and make sure you are fully compliant with COSHH and HSE guidelines. Contact us on email@example.com, or http://apsukltd.co.uk/contact/ for a free quotation.

The business park is located on a bus route between York and Selby, and is soon to be linked to the York to Selby cycle path. Other facilities at the business park include Young Discoverers child care, and DG Dale’s garage.

Congratulations to Rob our Project Manager who has successfully completed his CITB accredited, Site Supervisor Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) qualification.
This qualification means that Rob can undertake supervisory roles on sites where we are doing installations / modifications and ensure that our company continues to work as safely and conscientiously as we can. The course focuses on safety on site; it covers all the relevant legislation around health and safety, and helps provide the tools to maintain a safe working environment. The SSSTS course enables participants to perform risk assessments in all manner of construction circumstances and recognise the importance of method statements. Having completed the course, Rob is now able to perform on site inductions, method statement briefs, and toolbox talks, to make sure our company continues to work to the high standards that our customers expect from us.
At APS UK Ltd we work with a wide range of companies who deal with vastly differing media. But where there are particles (dust) or fume in the air, we can help with your extraction or conveying needs. Our experienced engineers can design and install a bespoke system for you or test and modify an existing one to ensure it is running to its full capabilities.

Congratulations to Adrian for completing the Prudential Ride London, a 100mile bike ride made famous by the road race in the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The route started in the Olympic Park and the riders had a rare opportunity to cycle through traffic free roads in London before heading out into the countryside to take on the famous Box-Hill zig-zags. The route then headed back in to London, following the Embankment and finishing on The Mall.
Not only was this a chance to complete a personal challenge it was also an opportunity to help raise awareness and money for a great cause. Adrian fundraised for CLIC Sargent, a charity who help and support children and young people with cancer. From diagnosis, CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams step in, ready to help, support and guide. They provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family.
Adrian managed to raise over £500 for this worthy cause and we are really proud of all his efforts.
