Exacting Standards - Firm Takes Three UKAS ISOs

Exact Moves

In a week when the sector took pride in Global FM Standards (and in particular the ISO 41000 Series for the FM industry), one firm is flying the flag for hitting three of the most sought after ISO accreditations.

The Exact Moves commercial movers team have become one if not the only UK relocation company in the British Association of Removers (BAR) and the British Association of Removers Commercial Moving Group (CMG) to attain three UKAS accreditations to ISO Standards - ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018.

 

What are they?

ISO 9001:2015 helps businesses to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction. It addresses organisational risks and opportunities in a structured manner.

ISO 14001:2015 maps a framework that a company can follow to set up an effective environmental management system.

ISO 45001:2018 specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety management system and gives guidance to enable organisations to prevent work-related injury and ill health.

Exact's endeavours to achieve and retain the standards has been led by the company's Michelle Jones. She said: on her and the teams achievements: “I am really proud of all of the team and all the hard work we have invested in getting and adhering to these testing standards."

 

No issues

Jones continued: "We have never had a non-conformity issue – major or minor – and that only comes from everyone ensuring that best work practices are maintained. This means our clients not only benefit from but also see that all our staff work in the most productive way to the correct procedures and with all the right documentation. Through continual improvement and annual reviews, we remain focused on staying true to the values that ensures we are never complacent in how we operate as a business – both now and in the future."

Rick Jones, MD said: “With the importance of health and safety becoming more appreciated, business relocation companies have to evolve from being a 'lift and shift' service provider to a more advanced 'what is achievable' mind-set.

"Retaining ISO45001:2018 provides our clients with the knowledge and confidence that we take health and safety very seriously. Being accredited with not one but three UKAS accreditations underlines the levels of service and safety we are committed to providing for our clients and employees."
