"There is always room for improvement, which is why we continually look for ways to optimise our services." 

Company certificates

As you would expect, Abird is ISO9001 and VCA (SSC) certified. We are also affiliated with the Industrial Cleaning Foundation (SIR) and we work exclusively with lifting and hoisting materials approved in accordance with TCVT standards and our inspectors are TCVT certified.

We do all we can in order to continuously improve our organisation. Only then can we offer you increasingly safer and better services and products.

ISO 9001/2008

Our ISO 9001 certification guarantees the quality of our products and services. This is accomplished by adopting a structured approach to the rental and sales process on the one hand and by implementing a programme of in-depth equipment testing and maintenance on the other hand.

VCA* 2008/5.1

VCA certification is important for your safety and the safety of our employees. VCA, which stands for Veiligheid, Gezondheid & Milieu (VGM) Checklist Aannemers and translates as Contractors' Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Checklist, is a versatile programme for assessing and certifying SHE systems operated by service companies.


Because we also supply breathing units, Abird is affiliated with the Industrial Cleaning Foundation (SIR). The objective of the SIR is to promote and regulate safe working practices in the industrialëcleaning sector. Since 1 January 2005, everyone working in industrialëcleaning using breathing apparatus must have a valid SIR certificate. All existing and new equipment must comply with the design and material requirements in the SIR handbook.


All our lifting and hoisting equipment is supplied via our subsidiary Hef & Hijs Nederland. Hef & Hijs Nederland works exclusively in accordance with TCVT certified inspectors and applies TCVT standards.  Hef & Hijs Nederland is also an affiliate member of the VVT (Vertical Transport Association).
