Three Elm Service Station, in Hadlow Road, was awarded the badge of honour after an exemplary health and safety audit this month.

The new scheme, masterminded by forecourt compliance company Suresite Group, awards petrol stations achieving a score of at least 80 per cent a blue window sticker, while those scoring 95 per cent and above are entitled to display a ‘gold standard’ accreditation.

The forecourt at Three Elm, which also features a Co-op convenience store, scored 100 per cent, making it the first in the county to receive a perfect score since the window sticker scheme was rolled out during the summer.

Lucy Hobbs, a sales assistant at the service station, said: “Our new window badge is the forecourt equivalent of a five star food hygiene rating sticker for a restaurant or fast food outlet, and it gives our customers the confidence that we are a safe site.

“We are proud of the hard work and achievements of our staff team, who will continue to make a visit to our site a safe and enjoyable one.”

Neil Simms, Compliance Manager at the Suresite Group, added: “Our new window sticker scheme rewards forecourts that achieve good scores on their compliance audits.

“This demonstrates the operator’s commitment to ensuring the safety of staff, contractors and customers that visit that site. With the badge on display, all visitors to the site will know that health  and safety is a top consideration.”
