Many clients and customers are selective about the organisations they are associated with and are not willing to trade with suppliers who do not demonstrate a responsible approach to environmental matters or do not have ethical and responsible systems in place.
Show stakeholders your commitment to quality and ethical standards by introducing internationally recognised certifications and systems into your organisation. Investors in People and ISO Management Systems are standards that are renowned and respected across the globe.
A management system can give you a competitive advantage within the supply chain. Other stakeholders such as investors, employees and the wider community will regard your organisation more favourably for a formal approach to quality and corporate responsibility.
Recognised systems also enable you to remain legally compliant, which is of course a crucial requirement for all organisations. Our expert consultants will advise and support you to ensure that you not only achieve compliance but continue to remain on top of all legislation.
The Investors in People award shows your commitment to developing your people and creating a great place to work.
Suitable for organisations in any sector, Investors in People is a sign that yours performs to excellent standards. Organisations working with Investors in People see increased efficiency and productivity as well as more engaged employees. They more profitable, more sustainable and more optimistic about the future.
Our consultants will support your through the process of Investors in People accreditation, drawing on their knowledge and experience of training and Human Resource practices. The assessment process will give you practical recommendations enabling you to improve your performance and build a culture based on the excellence of your people.
ISO14001 certification is recognised, respected and often required by your clients and customers.
To get the most from your ISO14001 certification, you need a tailored service, not an “off the shelf” package. This way you not only get the formal recognition that your environmental efforts deserve, you also see improvements in your processes and reductions in resource wastage.
Our consultants will guide you through the whole process, from an initial review of your existing systems and policies through to full external assessments and certification. We can then provide ongoing support, updates and advice to ensure that you remain abreast of the legislation.
A Business Continuity Plan is an integral part of your planning and identifies the necessary contingencies you need to put in place in case of a crisis.
It will ensure that your business can continue to run as smoothly as possible. ISO 22301 is a recognised management system that enables you to identify probable emergencies, disasters, accidents or threats and put in place the plans that will minimise disruption to your business.
OMS can work with you to understand your needs, develop systems and procedures and embed them in your organisation, as well as manage the certification process for you. After your successful certification, we can support you by developing, maintaining and auditing your systems whilst you maintain full document control.
Many of your customers or clients require their suppliers to be able to demonstrate the quality standards they apply to their operations.
As an internationally recognised generic standard, ISO 9001 is the certification organisations look for as an indicator of your operational excellence. The process of achieving ISO 9001 certification will provide you with a framework for improving your customer focus, processes, and decision making, as well as ensuring your people are involved and so are more committed to maintaining quality standards.
OMS will work with you to identify your needs and develop the procedures, process maps, forms and frameworks that will reflect your organisation and its practices. We can also support you with your ISO 9001: 2015 certification audits and preparation to ensure you succeed first time, with minimal disruption to you.
Social responsibility and environmental sustainability are increasingly sought after by clients, investors, employees and other stakeholders.
Clearly defined social responsibility policies and initiatives ensure that you can demonstrate your ethical credentials and commitment to addressing growing demands of social, economic and environmental protection.
Every business is different so your social responsibility initiatives need to reflect your reputational, ethical, branding and commercial drivers, as well as satisfy the requirements of your stakeholders. Through a bespoke service, OMS use the ISO 26000 standard to provide a framework for your social responsibility systems and ensure that they are embedded throughout your business, so that your environmental good practice supports your social responsibility framework.
A Safety Management System based on the OHSAS 18001 certification will provide a comprehensive approach to identifying and managing risks and hazards.
It will demonstrate to clients and customers that you provide a safe and healthy working environment, improve your business performance and enable you to comply with legislation. Your Safety Management System will cover staff training and competence, performance measuring and improvement, and operational controls. It will ensure that you can respond to emergencies and have procedures in place in case of accidents.
OMS can support you through your external OHSAS 18001 assessment to successful certification and can continue this support through updating and maintaining your systems in line with changes in legislation whilst you maintain full document control.
