ISO 45001 Health and Safety Certification will ensure you are on top of your regulatory requirements in this vital business area. Additionally, the use of this important management standard will improve and possibly simplify your entire approach to a significan risk control part of your busines. We look at ten aspects of this Management Standard to help you improve your business.
The Certification Bodies are independent organisations assessed and registered by Government set-up Accreditation Bodies. The international standards together form a self checking system to ensure that standards are globally uniform. We explain more fully how the certification bodies fit into the ISO landscape.
The Environmental Management Standard (ISO 14001) was updated in 2015. The changes included a move to ensure that the Standard aligns better with other Standards. The new approach is more about Leadership and the context of the organisation. So, it goes beyond the inward looking aspects of the business and its goals. The Environmental Management Standard is about considering the wider scope of the environmental impact of your business.
The BS EN 1090 Standard made it an offence to supply non-conforming steelwork. We look at the issues.
Strong construction sales growth appears to be a consequence of better organisation and regulation in the industry. CHARTER4 has clients who are benifiting from certification in BS EN 1090 Standard for structural steel and aluminium. This is a requirement for products to be sold in Europe. Apparently, it is also setting standards for profit too.
Construction Products Regulations (CPR) and EN 1090 for Steel Fabrications, have been put into focus by the first floor collapse at an Audi car showroom. These critical regulations have more impact than just ticking off another certificate.
Quality Management in the Oil and Gas industry falls under the API Specifications Q1 and Q2. Last year after the 9th Edition API Q1 Standard upgrade, Charter 4 Solutions assisted 30% of Applicants in the UK. This year, the figure has increased.
Major Purchasers of Oil & Gas Services specified that their Suppliers need to be certified to Q2 by 2016. This seems to be falling short. The industry needs to wake up to the need for urgent training.
API Management Standard Certification appears to be causing some confusion. Some companies appear to be uncertain about which of API Q1 or API Q2 Management Standards to work toward. In particular should they be assessed to Q1 or Q2? In this post we clarify the issue.
The importance of a quality standard goes beyond just achieving the certification. The API Q1 is a Quality Management Standard. Consequently, successful certification should also improve the standard of your management system within your business. CHARTER4 has pioneered an approach which helps organisations achieve API Q1 certification and improve their business.
