Health and Safety
We are all very concerned to be doing the right thing by our employees and are concerned about staying on the right side of the law. One of the ways that we can do both is by embracing the ISO 18001 standard.
Published in 2007 this standard describes an Occupational Health and Safety Management System and as a result many companies are now combining this with their existing Quality and /or Environmental Systems. The advantage of merging all of these systems is that they become easier to maintain and the certification fees tend to be lower than with three separate management systems.
That being said, if you have never embraced ISO 9001 or ISO 14001 but have always been concerned more with health and safety issues a stand alone ISO 18001 system could be ideal for you.
Remembering our expertise in systems management, QMI Scotland Limited have brought on board specialists in the field of Health and Safety and now offer assistance with setting up systems, integrating Health and Safety with existing systems and offer audit support to clients.
Further more QMI Scotland Limited have two training courses relating to the standard. The ISO 18001 Foundation course, explaining the standard and how it relates to business, is an excellent introduction to the standard and allows participants to determine the application and relevance to their own business. The ISO 18001 Internal Auditor course is for those who having decided that it is relevant to their companies and want to set up their system.
Our bank of clients in this area is mainly in the oil related industries, with many clients citing us as excellent service providers.
