ISO 45001:2018 is a standard of requirements against which your Health & Safety Management System can be evaluated. You are required to identify the Health and Safety risks associated with your operations and mitigate their impact. ISO 45001 Certification will provide your customers with the assurance that the activities you are carrying out on their behalf will be done so safely and in line with legal requirements. By achieving ISO 45001 Certification your company will be actively demonstrating your ability to identify hazards, their associated risks and reduce them to the best of your ability.
Management commitment to the system will also ensure that company standards are maintained along with compliance to ISO 45001:2018 and legal requirements. Your staff will also be involved through their consultation and participation which will ultimately create a culture of safety throughout your business. For those who have implemented an ISO 9001:2015 and / or an ISO 14001:2015 management system as well as others that follow the higher level structure, the ISO 45001 standard will be aligned to match these standards. This helps to integrate multiple management systems into one integrated management system (IMS). Our dedicated consultants can provide guidance to implementation of an effective IMS.
ISO 9001:2015 is a standard of requirements against which your Quality Management System can be evaluated. It is easily adaptable allowing it to apply to any type of business who wish to achieve ISO 9001 Certification. By demonstrating and verifying your compliance to the requirements of ISO 9001, you are actively advertising your company’s commitment to the development and improvement of your quality management system and its processes. ISO 9001 Certification promotes the development of continual improvement, risk reduction, customer satisfaction and traceability through the implementation of various management system processes. These are key criteria in convincing potential clients to utilise your products and services.
ISO 14001:2015 is a standard of requirements which clearly defines and establishes controls to reduce your company’s environmental impact as a result of your everyday operations. Targets and Objectives must be defined and legal requirements met in order to maintain compliance to ISO 14001. ISO 14001 Certification is applicable to all types of organisation, although the type and extent of controls to be applied will depend on the size of the business and the nature of the activities being carried out. Effective implementation of an Environmental Management System such as ISO 14001 will result in a reduction in pollution, a minimisation of waste and efficient use of raw materials and energy you guard against legislative liability.
