Update and overhaul

Organisations, and the environment they exist in, change with time but management systems frequently fall behind. We carry out a full review of existing processes and advise on how to make them relevant again.  Our speciality is light-weight management systems that drive change and revitalise quality, environmental and safety management.


Update and overhaul existing ISO management systems

The new ISO 9001:2015 & ISO 14001:2015 were released in September 2015, whilst the new ISO 45001:2018 was released in March 2018.  All of these new standards introduce some fundamental changes to quality, environmental & occupational health & safety management systems respectively. Holders of OHSAS 18001 certificates have until September 2021 to migrate to ISO 45001.  Making this transition is also a good opportunity to update and overhaul any processes that no longer add value. Older documented management systems can be bloated and bureaucratic, making them difficult to manage and unable to deliver the business benefits you should expect:

  • Significant cost savings
  • Increased revenue
  • Improved staff performance
  • Light-touch regulation

We work across a wide range of private & public sector organisations and have seen some ingenious ways of conforming to standards. We can bring this experience of other systems to bear to stream-line your management system and make it really work for you.

Our Associates have experience with the following well known standards, which we can revise as either a stand-alone or as a fully integrated management system:-

  • Environmental management – ISO 14001 and the BS 8555 Acorn Scheme
  • Quality Management and general business management – ISO 9001
  • Information security – ISO 27001, which is an ideal basis for managing Data Protection
  • Safety Management – ISO 45001

We also work with less well known process management standards such as:

  • Bituminous mixtures – EN 13108
  • Emissions & carbon accounting – PAS 2050
  • Energy management – ISO 50001
  • Fleet Management – FORS
  • National Highways Sector Schemes
  • Pre-cast concrete – EN 13369, EN 14992, EN 15258 etc
  • Structural metalwork – EN 1090-1
  • Supply chain sustainability – BES 6001 & BS 8903
  • Sustainable hospitality – ISO 20121
  • Waste management – PAS 100 & 110

We add new standards constantly, and are always willing to have a conversation about new ones, so please contact us to discuss your needs.
