Implementing an ISO accredited QHSE Management System
The organistion was under increasing pressure to become an approved supplier a pre-requisite was to have a certified QHSE system. This is increasingly common and helps both parties manage their risk. However, this company had multiple business streams and quite a complex scope making certification to ISO level much more challenging.
The organisation already had a rudimentary system in place and rather than start from scratch with a “template” or “kit” which may help gain accreditation but may not serve the business, Steven harnessed upon what was already working well within the system already in place, brought up to the required standard, addressing shortfalls and importantly, involving the operatives and line managers in the process.
The system was certified by LRQA to 9001:2015, 14001:2015 & 18001:2007 on first attempt. The system remains in place and helped the business become an approved supplier for major companies within the Oil & Gas industry. In addition, Steven achieved FPAL verification and achieve BINDT accreditation for providing training and an approved test center, one of only a handful in Scotland.
