We support your auditing process
Health and Safety, and Environmental Audits are an invaluable tool that provide an objective and systematic evaluation of how your company is managing safety and its effectiveness. Our experienced team of chartered consultants can work closely with your team to provide independent support in the area you need. We will understand your goals whether it is achieving certification of ISO 45001, BS OHSAS 18001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management System or supporting internal initiatives and then agree the level of auditing required.
We work closely with your staff observing work conditions and practices, assessing your current policies, procedures and management systems to produce a snapshot of your organisation’s performance with prioritised recommendations to implement.
Dependent on your requirements of the Audit, the first part will often be a Gap Analysis. For example we will carry out a detailed audit of your health and safety, and environmental and sustainability system against recognised standards i.e. Quality Management Systems or internal company standards and report on the areas that need to be addressed.
We can also carry out a Compliance Review of your company’s current health and safety, and/or environmental systems and procedures against the specific requirements for example legislation. We will provide recommendations to practically implement to help you achieve compliance of the certification or the specific legislation resulting in improved performance.

Why do you need a Management system?
Organisations with effective management systems tend to perform more successfully, reflected in some of world’s most profitable organisations earning the confidence from key stakeholders. This can positively impact new business, insurance premiums, staff morale and your company image.
Management systems are an essential tool to enable companies to operate to best practice standards and protect people from injury and prevent potential legal action. Legislation requires Senior Management team of companies to be responsible for suitable management arrangements for health and safety.

Following an initial discussion of your specific needs we would typically carry out a review of your existing management arrangements against ISO 45001, BS 18001 or ISO 14001 and your own business objectives. We work closely with your team on the priorities throughout.
We will provide a gap analysis of your system against the relevant standard and identify areas that need to be addressed.
