Chiddingfold service station named H&S hero after full marks inspection

Broken Spur Garage

"The forecourt equivalent of a food hygiene rating sticker"   A Waverley forecourt has become the first in Surrey to be awarded a new gold standard site safety sticker.

The Broken Spur BP service station, on Gostrode Lane, in Ramsnest Common, was awarded the badge of honour after an exemplary H&S audit at the end of September.

Inspectors scored the Chiddingfold site, which features a Spar convenience store, 100 percent. The new scheme, masterminded by forecourt compliance experts Suresite Group, awards petrol stations achieving a score of at least 80 percent a blue window sticker, whilst those scoring 95 percent and above are entitled to display a 'gold standard' accreditation.
The Broken Spur forecourt is operated by Farnham-based Refuel & Go Ltd and is the first forecourt in the county to receive a perfect score since the window sticker scheme was rolled out during the summer. Each sticker is dated and lasts for 12 months from the time of the inspection.
Nick Lunness, site manager, said: “Our new window badge is the petrol station equivalent of a five star food hygiene rating sticker on a restaurant or fast food outlet. It should give our customers the confidence that we are a safe site to visit. “We are proud of the hard work and achievements of all of our staff team, who will continue to ensure a visit to our site is a safe and enjoyable.” Neil Simms, compliance manager, Suresite Group, said: "Our new window sticker scheme rewards forecourts that achieve good scores on their compliance audits. This demonstrates the operators’ commitment to ensuring the safety of staff, contractors and customers. "With their badge on display, all site visitors will know that health & safety is a top consideration. “The Broken Spur petrol station is a very worthy recipient of the first gold sticker in Surrey.”

Window badges are awarded at the assessors' discretion and sites will be required to demonstrate they are committed to continual improvement. Suresite Group has been the leading provider of risk assessments in the retail petroleum industry since its foundation in 1994. Its UK and Ireland network of assessors ensures adhesion to all legislation and best practice.
