NECS Maintain High Standards with ISO Certification Renewal

As you may be aware, in October 2014 we were awarded no fewer than three ISO accreditations in recognition of the standard of our quality management, environmental management, and occupational health and safety.

We are proud to say that after our annual external audits last month, our ISO accreditations have been renewed. Such accreditations are not handed out without being able to fully demonstrate the highest possible standards, and so we would like to explain what these accreditations mean to us, and of course to our customers.

The three standards we have met are:

ISO 9001

This standard relates to quality management and means that we strive to maintain an extremely high level of work across all of our operations. This is the most well-respected and widely recognised quality management standard in the world and has been awarded due to our commitment to achieving a consistently high level of service.

ISO 14001

As an environmentally conscious company, ISO 14001 is dear to our hearts as it relates to maintaining an approach of environmental responsibility. Over the years we have put an effective environmental management system in place, meaning that as well as trying to provide the best possible service economically, we never forget our commitment to minimising any negative impact on the environment. We find that many of our customers also have such an approach to work, which is why this environmental standard is so welcome.

OHSAS 18001

Health and safety should be extremely important to any business, and it certainly is to us. OHSAS 18001 is all about occupational health and safety and ensuring that our staff are always well looked after. A safe workplace is very important and we have again renewed our pledge to providing this for everyone working for us, throughout the country.

These ISO accreditations underline our commitment to being a socially responsible employer and a service provider which strives to operate in an ethical fashion. With many customers and employees in the Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Leeds areas, as well as Scotland, we wish only to have a positive impact on everything we do.
