We are pleased to announce that the integrated management system audit for the management standards for Quality (ISO 9001), Environment (ISO 14001) and Health and Safety (BS OHSAS 18001) has now been successfully completed for our Bradford, Livingston and Gatwick offices. The success follows assessment by certification body ACS and underlines our unwavering commitment to professionalism. This certification demonstrates our continual improvement since our original certification in 2014.
The auditor commented on the strong sense of commitment from all those he met during his visit and we also received a ‘very good’ observation for the Compliance Schedule which has been developed over the last 12 months. This schedule identifies all stakeholder requirements which are needed to ensure the business remains compliant and provides notification on a monthly basis across all business units.
Beverley Peace, Group Compliance Director, said: “This is a tremendous achievement for the business. Our certification is testament to the positive engagement of colleagues at all levels and demonstrates a clear desire to embrace these standards as a fundamental element of our growth and business strategies. The benefits of these standards are far reaching. They help to enhance professionalism of our operations and provide a culture of exceeding expectations. This is really helpful with employee engagement as our people understand our expectations and goals and they share in our success.”
The hard work doesn’t stop here. The standards are set and we will continue to work hard to maintain these levels. In addition, we are also about to start working towards ISO 45001 (Occupational Health & Safety), ISO 27001 (Information Security Management).
