This year was our reaccreditation year for ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & ISO 45001. We are pleased to announce that we passed the audit with flying colours. With the sort of work that we are now doing, being accredited to international standards is essential and is a base entry requirement on the majority of frameworks and supplier lists that we are on.
The ISO 9001 standard is a globally recognized management system that integrates a company’s internal processes throughout the entire organization, allowing for a process-based approach to business management with a focus on risk management.
ISO 9001 has a higher-level structure to make it easier to use in conjunction with other management system standards such as aerospace, automotive, and environmental, which use ISO 9001 as a foundation and then add their industry-specific requirements.
The following are some of the key requirements:
Risk management, identifying potential risks.
Commitment from the top management.
Increasing the value of the company and its customers.
Key processes are under control.
Keeping track, maintaining detailed records.
Plans for corrective action.
Ensuring that improvement is ongoing.
The ISO 14001 Environmental Management System is a globally recognized standard (EMS).
It can be used by any company that wants to be proactive in reducing its environmental impact. ISO 14001 certification assists businesses in achieving this goal by providing tools to help them manage the environmental impact of their activities, products, and services in order to meet their environmental and financial objectives.
The ISO 14001 Standard was created to support environmental protection and pollution prevention while keeping socioeconomic needs in mind.
Environmental management covers a wide range of concerns, including those that have strategic and competitive implications. Businesses can benefit from ISO 14001 certification in the following ways:
Make a commitment to full legal compliance.
Ensure that environmental policies and objectives are followed.
Implementing standard procedures and processes to become more efficient.
Reduce the use of raw materials/resources, as well as waste generation and disposal costs.
Demonstrate to external stakeholders and clients a commitment to reducing environmental impact.
Every year, health and safety risks cost businesses a huge amount of money. ISO 45001, the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series, is a voluntary international quality management system standard that was created to assist any business in controlling risks while managing and improving performance.
Implementing a structured health and safety management system throughout a company will show that the business cares about the well-being of employees, suppliers, and customers. The following are some of the advantages of the internationally recognized ISO 45001 Certification:
Employees and others know the company minimizes risks to them.
Improved business results.
Establishes a trustworthy reputation in the marketplace.
Avoids the possibility of fines and penalties.
Provides proactive rather than reactive compliance. Provides legal compliance commitment.
Aids personnel in focusing on and prioritizing the most important health and safety concerns.
Ensures the implementation of effective compliance systems, such as training programs, internal inspections, recordkeeping, and a corrective action process.
