January seems to be the month for external audits in the Elev8 Office! As well as our Achilles Audit (which we passed with a 100% score) our quality and environmental management systems were audited against the latest ISO 9001 & ISO 14001 standards.
Here at Elev8 we are committed to delivering a world class access platform hire service to our clients. Just one of the ways we achieve this is by being a procedure lead organisation. Throughout the course of the year we audit our own system to ensure that it is working and strive to continually improve delivery of our MEWP hire service.
The external auditor spent a full day reviewing the management procedures for our specialist access platform hire operations. The audit went very well with no non-conformances raised against either standard.
A huge thank you to the Elev8 team for all your hard work throughout the year, and especially January when we have so many external audits.
ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed to ensure progress is being maintained.
ISO 14001 was first introduced in 1996 as a British Standard and requires organisations to have an environmental policy and action plan in place to manage their impact on the environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
