Sainsbury’s backs ACRIB’s refrigeration skillcard

Carshalton, Surrey, UK: Retailers and contractors are signing up to the ACRIB (Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry Board) Refrigeration Skillcard to prove their carbon reduction credentials.

John Skelton, head of refrigeration, Sainsbury’s said: “Our customers expect us to do the right thing by them so we have to be able to easily check that an engineer carrying out service and maintenance work on our refrigeration systems has the correct qualifications.

“The ACRIB Skillcard could be one such solution because it confirms their qualifications and demonstrates their commitment to the highest standards.

“We see first-hand the benefits for our colleagues who undertake training that leads to externally recognised qualifications. If the ACRIB Skillcard became mandatory it would raise the standard of expertise across the entire sector, because it could also prove competence in CO2, hydrocarbon, ammonia, brazing, and the IOR’s Real Zero certification,” he says.
