Recently designed and launched by CPT’s Engineering Committee with support from the Traffic Commissioners, the Accreditation assesses bus and coach operators’ workshops, as well as dealer workshops. It examines them against a series of in-depth engineering compliance and health and safety based procedures. t would seem that Ipswich Buses have passed those tests with flying colours.
Engineering Manager, Nigel Daniels, was integral to the operator’s successful passing of the Workshop Accreditation assessment. Nigel also completed a further two day audit and achieved CPT’s Engineering Manager Accreditation. He now automatically qualifies for affiliate and associate membership of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
Ipswich Buses Managing Director, Malcolm Robson said, ‘We are honoured to be the first operator to hold CPT’s new Workshop Accreditation. This is a real testament to our Engineering Manager, Nigel Daniels, and his highly skilled and dedicated team of engineers and demonstrates the importance Ipswich Buses places on ensuring the highest levels of safety and compliance.’
For those who don't know CPT stands for Confederation of Public Transport and is basically the operator's union/social club. Well done to Ipswich Buses and Nigel Daniels in particular, even though clearly this isn't anything like as prestigious as the STEVE award!!!
