Clean sweep in quality audits
15 March 2019
Following a rigorous two-day assessment, TC Facilities Management (TCFM) has passed three external management systems audits: the new ISO 45001:2018 standard; the other new 2015 versions for ISO 9001; and the Environmental audit ISO 14001.
The audit took place over two consecutive days and included a comprehensive review of company policies and processes. This was to assess TCFM’s approach to the quality (ISO 9001) and safety (ISO 45001:2018) it provides to customers and colleagues, as well as the measures the company takes to minimise its environmental impact (ISO 14001).
Organisations have until March 2021 to make the transition to the new ISO 45001:2018 standard. It replaces BS OHAS 18001:2007. TCFM’s achievement in making the transition to the new standards is testament to the work of its compliance manager, Richard Grafham, who championed the transition. It also emphasises the senior management’s commitment to these standards.
Brian Mold TCFM’s QHSE Manager says: “The successful transition to the new standard along with the renewal of the established standards clearly demonstrates TCFM’s commitment to quality and safety in all that we do and is a tremendous reassurance to our customers that TCFM remains a business you can trust. It is a huge accolade to all our staff and their hard work.”
