VCA

In the context of safety at work, Flash uses the VCA standard, for which annual audits are conducted. This means that Flash emphasises the importance of safe working conditions.

VCA stands for Safety, Health and Environment (Veiligheid, Gezondheid en Milieu, VGM) Contractor Checklist and is intended to help employees work more safely and reduce the number of accidents. In practice, VCA is much more than a checklist. It is a versatile programme that enables service providers to be assessed and certified on their VGM management system.

The development of the VCA certification system was started by the Landelijke Werkgroep Contractor Veiligheid [National Workgroup for Contractor Safety] in 1989. Representatives of petrochemical companies and contractors wanted to establish a system to objectively assess contractors’ organisations on their safety policies and performance. The VCA is now widely recognised as the industry standard.

VCA certification is intended for companies carrying out activities with an increased risk in a risky environment. Flash Private Mobile Networks is a company that comes under that definition. Flash has been active for over 20 years in the market for mission and business-critical communication for the (petro)chemical sector.

In the context of safety at work, Flash uses the VCA standard, for which annual audits are conducted. Having the VCA standard shows that Flash emphasises the importance of safe working conditions for its own employees. The Flash Service Engineers and Technical Consultants have the knowledge and experience to work in explosive environments in accordance with safety procedures.
