Week in Review

Consultancy:

  • Long-term management systems integration project, for my client in the construction sector, combing ISO 9001: 2015, ISO 14001: 2015, BS8500 and BS771-3
    • next steps are to create a Manual that incorporates all standards and defines the controls that in place; covering intent and actual.
    • identified gaps and requirements in relation to specific environmental controls, aspects/impacts and emergency preparedness; set tasks to management to consider approaches to mitigate these risks.
  • ISO 9001: 2015 implementation project with senior management team in Halifax with client who produce industrial standard training equipment to education and training providers around the world.
    • Process definition. Involvement of team to define and document the company processes. The client is finding this such a useful exercise as it is identifying just how complex the processes are (when they originally though they were quite simple and straight forward). Through my guidance and questioning techniques, the client is producing good detailed documents that are starting to add value by generating transparency in how ‘things are done’ and by defining surprising gaps in controls.
  • Auditing
    • 3rd party surveillance visit against ISO 9001: 2015 conducted at client based in Stevenage who provide HVAC maintenance services to facility management companies. This audit included a site visit to verify the management system controls extended to work carried out at customer premises.
