ISO 9001:2015 Quality Standard

ISO 9001 is suitable for any organisation looking to improve the way it is operated and managed, regardless of size or sector. However, the best returns on investment come from those Companies that are prepared to implement it throughout their organisation rather than at particular sites, departments or divisions.

Benefits

ISO 9001 should always be regarded as a quality improvement tool. By adopting the ISO 9001 ethos an organisation can prioritise its resources on those areas of most concern i.e. those increasing costs and affecting customer relationships.

The global adoption of ISO 9001 may be attributable to a number of factors. One such factor is that many organisations now require their suppliers and contractors to hold certain standards as a pre-requisite to supply.

Research into the USA motor carrier industry shows that having this Standard has led to superior operational performance and that there were similar improvements in financial performance.

ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Standard

ISO 14001 is an internationally accepted standard that sets out a framework of essential elements for putting an effective Environmental Management System (EMS) in place. The standard is designed to address the delicate balance between maintaining profitability and reducing environmental impact.

There has been a push by consumers in the last decade for companies to adopt stricter environmental regulations, making the incorporation of ISO 14001 a greater necessity for the long term viability of businesses and providing them with a competitive advantage against companies that do not adopt the standard.

The ISO 14001 Standard looks at the environmental impact the organisations processes have on the environment and requires disciplines to monitor these and to encourage the reduction in areas such as energy, fuel, waste materials etc

Manufacturing organisations can also significantly benefit from EMS implementation through the identification of cleaner methods of production which can drastically cut electricity costs. ISO 14001 can be a very effective tool to identify the cost savings opportunities and improvements that organisations can make.

OHSAS 18001 / AS/NZS 4801
Health and Safety Standards

An OHSMS promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows your organisation to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance.

Who is it relevant to?

OHSAS 18001 / AS/NZS 4801 can be adopted by any organisation wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the working environment for employees, customers and the general public.

Benefits

Occupational safety and health (OSH) is a cross-disciplinary area concerned with protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in work or employment. The goal of occupational health and safety programs is to foster a safe and healthy work environment.

As secondary effects, OSH may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, suppliers, nearby communities, and other members of the public who are impacted by the workplace environment as well as reduce medical care, sick leave and disability benefit costs.

The main focus in occupational health is on three different objectives:

(1) the maintenance and promotion of workers’ health and working capacity

(2) the improvement of working environment and work to become conducive to safety and health

(3) development of work organisations and working cultures in a direction which supports health and safety at work and in doing so also promotes a positive social climate and smooth operation and may enhance productivity.

With more awareness of health and safety issues in the community there is also a potential of reduced public liability insurance costs.
