Helping you with Certifications
Since 2003 Brian Mead, Business Improvement Services has been helping small to medium sized businesses, as well as non-profit organisations, to achieve ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 in a straightforward and effective manner that is designed to fit in with the existing business model or mode of operations of the organisation in question.
Achieving certification to ISO 9001 will help ensure that you implement a genuinely effective quality management system that will demonstrate to both existing and potential clients your commitment to delivering high quality products and services. The requirements of the Standard ensure that you are more easily able to identify critical processes as well as reduce the risk of things going wrong that may have a detrimental impact on your products or services.
With the current emphasis on protecting the environment, whether it be the broader picture of global warming, or the more local need of recycling to save resources, ISO 14001 specifies a system that will ensure you are able to identify the impacts that your business operations may have on the environment in order that you can then see how these may be reduced. It is also quite likely that ISO 14001 will help you to reduce costs through improved resource utilisation and recycling.
Although in less widespread usage than the ISO 9001 and 14001 standards, OHSAS 18001 is increasingly sought by those businesses or organisation where health & safety is of particularly great significance such as in the construction and related sectors. It is very straightforward to implement, especially where the organisation already has in place a designated health & safety management function and it is designed to integrate very well with the above mentioned quality and environmental standards.
