Obtain An ISO Accreditation With Alpha Safety

Many companies use a management system of some sort to run their business. Some are informal, some are more formal and some use the detailed management standards laid down by the International Standards Organisation (ISO).

ISO provide coded standards for different aspects of a company from Quality and Health & Safety to Risk and Security.  It also has sector specific standards for different industries such as Automotive, Aerospace and Medical.

All of the standards are based on controlling the management process of a business and all include continual improvement.  Once deployed, the system has to be audited by a third party body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) in order to obtain the relevant ISO standard.

Paul Jones, Managing Director of Alpha Safety commented “In order to tender for work with large corporates, it is becoming more common for an ISO accreditation to be held by the applicant business. Attempting to obtain an ISO standard alone or using an “off-the-shelf” package is not only time consuming, there is no guarantee of a successful outcome so a bespoke approach is needed and is something Alpha Safety can help with”.

An ISO Standard is geared around management systems, so the system you implement must be fit for purpose and tailor made to your organisation and that is where the Alpha team really add value.

Andrew Protheroe, Head of Risk Management at Alpha Safety commented “Our consultants hold a vast experience in a variety of industries, supported by industry specific auditing and certification scheme qualifications. Additionally, their previous managerial experience enables them to assist you with business operations and improvement ideas as well helping you implement and manage your chosen management system”.

Alpha can help businesses by evaluating current management systems, developing and implementing improved systems and getting the company ready for UKAS Audit.

Andrew continued “We can assist with the selection of a UKAS accredited certification body (based on value for your business and not just cost) and if needed, can support you once certified with continuous improvement, internal audits and managerial review support”.
