Aceta puts safety first with mark of integrity
AUSTRALIA: Aceta is allowing its members to use the association’s logo as a mark of integrity. The move will enable members to differentiate themselves from companies that are not complying with Australia rules and regulation.
‘There are numerous individuals and organisations that compromise our industry and we need to be able to provide legitimate companies who seek to do all the right things with some way of demonstrating their integrity,” said Frank Hinton, president of Aceta. ‘Using the Aceta logo is a solution.’
The high number of non-compliant and unsafe installations has recently been brought to the company's attention, and as a result customers are encouraged to look for the logo on tenders, quotes, sales and marketing materials.
‘This means that installers and re-sellers, for example, can also benefit from the Aceta mark of integrity,” added Mr Hinton. ’Reports received indicate disturbing numbers of installations that are non-compliant with established safety standards and are therefore dangerous, but many buyers wouldn’t know until something went very badly wrong. Buyers can look for the logo and know the seller commits to compliance.’
The mark of integrity can also be referred to by manufacturers looking for an Australian partner for distribution.
