ISO MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Transition to the new ISO standards for Health & Safety, Quality and Environmental Management
ISO management system standards provide a model to follow when setting up and operating a management system.
The benefits of an effective management system include: more efficient use of resources; improved risk management; and increased customer confidence and satisfaction as services and products consistently deliver what they promise.
We support the development and implementation of quality, environmental and health and safety management systems which following these standards:
Quality - ISO9001:2008 and ISO9001:2015, including National Highways Agency Sector Scheme add-ons e.g. NHSS7 for Roadmarking
Environmental - ISO14001:2004 and ISO14001:2015, BS8555:2016
Energy – ISO50001:2011
Occupational Health and Safety - OHSAS18001:2007
Occupational Health and Safety - ISO 45001
Integrated Management Systems - PAS99
Our expert consultants will take you through the process of implementation and typically there are four phases:
Phase 1 Gap Analysis - To establish where you are now and the main actions that need to be addressed to achieve full compliance with the chosen standard.
Phase 2 Development of the Relevant Management System (with associated policies, processes, procedures and documents). At this stage an initial audit is arranged with a UKAS-accredited certification body.
Phase 3 Implementation - Training is provided for employees and the management system becomes embedded.
Phase 4 Internal Audit - To determine the level of compliance with the management system and the standard itself. The audit confirms that the system has been implemented effectively across the organisation. A management review is also conducted during Phase 4 in readiness for the Stage 2 certification body assessment. This is the final step to certification to the relevant standard.
Following implementation we provide ongoing support for system maintenance which includes internal audits and facilitation of the management review. This will help to ensure you can demonstrate continuous improvement and achievement of objectives.
