ABOUT the project
Greenacre Environmental Systems Ltd
Feedback from some key clients had led Greenacre Environmental Systems Ltd to conclude that achieving UKAS accredited ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 certifications would be a valuable investment for the company to make. Through a trusted supplier they were introduced to, and subsequently appointed, Alpha Swanson to assist and guide them through this process.
The project to achieve these certifications commenced in early June, and followed the standard Alpha Swanson pattern of data collection and system drafting, which aims to produce a bespoke management system that reflects the organisation, rather than a generic set of documents that can simply introduce red tape and gather dust. Once the system had been implements, Alpha Swanson performed the initial internal auditing (ensuring the impartiality requirements of the standards were observed) and guided the first management review, and the organisation were successfully recommended for certification on 20th December 2016; what a great Christmas present!
Shortly after, Alpha Swanson were delighted to be reappointed by Greenacre Environmental Systems to assist them maintain both their system and certifications, as well as providing competent health & safety support, and we were very pleased to be reappointed once again on a similar basis early in 2018. We are hoping that this successful collaboration continues, and that we can assist the organisation achieve both renewal to ISO9001 and ISO14001, and transition to ISO45001, in 2019.
