ISO certifications allow companies to benefit from improved processes and controls, whilst providing additional credibility to potential and existing customers.
ISO 9001 Certification
ISO 9001 is a globally recognised standard and is rapidly becoming the most important quality standard in the world. More and more businesses will only deal with accredited companies as they recognise the controls in product, service and quality.
The ISO 9001 certification aims to provide a practical and workable Quality Management System (QMS) to help improve and monitor all areas of your business. By designing and implementing an effective QMS into your business, you will be able to focus on the important areas of your business and improve efficiency.
Your competitors will probably be ISO 9001 accredited and so should you!
ISO 14001 Certification
ISO 14001 is becoming the standard “Environmental” certification and is recognised all over the world. Every major country has “Green Quotas” to identify and meet, and this certification often opens up opportunities for businesses that achieve the certification. The international standard will specify the requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). The EMS would provide companies with a framework to follow which could be used to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste and reduce costs.
ISO 14001 is a tool for managing the impacts of an organization’s activities on the environment, and will allow your business to consider environmental issues before they become a problem.
OHSAS 18001 Certification
You will be aware of the legal requirements of Health and Safety, but also, as markets become more competitive, customers are looking for that “extra edge” from their suppliers.
OHSAS 18001 demonstrates that your business is managed efficiently and responsibly from a Health and Safety viewpoint, with the benefits of stability and professionalism which that brings. OHSAS 18001 is the British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems, which allows companies to demonstrate that they have the correct system in place. An effective health and safety management system can provide many benefits including improving corporate image, credibility and ensuring the health and wellbeing of employees and the public.
(SIA) – Approved Contractor Scheme
The Approved Contractors’ scheme will demonstrate to your customers and suppliers that your business is running professionally. It proves that you continually strive to improve business processes and that you monitor and control service standards. The scheme also helps to raise performance standards and to assist the private security industry in developing new opportunities.
Many security companies are unable to secure contracts with councils, local government, large corporate and construction companies due to a lack of certification. This results in smaller unsecured contracts which makes it very difficult to plan for the business.
You don’t want to be excluded for quoting for large contracts and ongoing business opportunities simply because your company does not have this important standard. The clear solution is to step up to the mark and gain the SIA certification. Read More
