ISO 9001

ISO 9001

ISO 9001 is the most widely recognised quality management system standard in the world. It demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to supplying a product or service that consistently meets your customers’ requirements.

UKAS accredited ISO 9001 certification is frequently a condition of being a supplier to large companies, Local Government departments or Government funded bodies (e.g. NHS, MOD).

The emphasis of ISO 9001:2015 is on maintaining well defined operating processes and striving to continually improve what you do – to the benefit of your customers, your staff and your organisation. It does not require you to change any of your operating processes but simply ensure that they are consistent and controlled.

A good Quality Management System is built around the business and not around the standard. It should be easy to maintain and set up so you can focus on your business needs and not on ISO 9001.

The ISO 9001 process provides a robust framework for improving every organisation’s quality system by adopting eight quality management principles:

  1. Customer focus
  2. Leadership
  3. Involvement of people
  4. Documented processes
  5. Integrated systems
  6. Continuous improvement
  7. A factual approach to decision making
  8. Mutually beneficial supplier relationships

ISO 14001

ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.

Part of the ISO 14000 family of standards on environmental management, ISO 14001 is a voluntary standard that organizations can certify to. Integrating it with other management systems standards, most commonly ISO 9001, can further assist in accomplishing organizational goals.

The International Organization of Standardization (ISO) defines an environmental management system as “part of the management system used to manage environmental aspects, fulfil compliance obligations, and address risks and opportunities.” The framework in the ISO 14001 standard can be used within a plan-do-check-act (PDCA) approach to continuous improvement.

  • Leadership
  • Planning
  • Support
  • Operation
  • Performance evaluation
  • Improvement

OHSAS 18001

OHSAS 18001, Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series, (officially BS OHSAS 18001) is an internationally applied British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It exists to help all kinds of organizations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance. It is a widely recognized and popular occupational health and safety management system.

Its supporters claim that an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that helps organizations to:

  • Identify and control health and safety risks
  • Reduce the potential for accidents
  • Aid legal compliance
  • Improve overall performance

The OHSAS 18000 standards provide organizations with the elements of an effective safety management system which can be integrated with other management systems and help organizations achieve better occupational health and safety performance and economic objectives.

BS OHSAS 18001 specifies requirements for an OH&S management system to help an organization develop and implement a policy and objectives, which take into account legal requirements and information about OH&S risks. It applies to all types and sizes of organizations and accommodates diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions.

BS OHSAS 18002 provides guidance for establishing, implementing or improving a management system which is based on OHSAS 18001 and demonstrating successful implementation of OHSAS 18001.

OHSAS 18001 can be aligned with existing ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 management systems. Historically many organizations start with the quality management system ISO 9001, then add the environment management requirements from ISO 14001. Many organizations now look at implementing all three standards at once which can minimize costs and disruption. The standards can be integrated using a standard such as BSI’s PAS 99.
