ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Certification
After months of assessment, we are pleased to announce that NatWaste Limited have been awarded ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification by ACS. ACS are a certification agency, providing certification services that are accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).
Each of the certifications achieved required NatWaste limited to meet specific globally recognised industry standards. ISO 9001:2008 certifies that NatWaste adheres to international quality management standards. ISO 14001:2004 confirms that that the organisation is efficiently managing and mitigating their impact on the environment and the OHSAS 18001 certification verifies that NatWaste limited provides a safe and healthy workplace for its employees.
Our journey towards our certifications started in October 2013. We were keen from the beginning to ensure that the ISO standard frameworks were used to bring genuine value to our customers, suppliers and employees rather then focusing on the accreditation for accreditation’s sake. Prior to presenting ourselves to the certification agency (in our case ACS registrars) hours of preparation and work were undertaken, internal processes and polices aligned with ISO standards, all employees trained and internal audits completed.
Sean Merrett, Director at NatWaste Limited said:
“By achieving these certifications, we have demonstrated that NatWaste is committed to maintaining international standards in quality, health, safety and the environment. We look forward to continuing to develop a proactive and positive approach to maintaining these high standards, as the NatEco group moves to the next level”
Our UKAS certifications of compliance recognises that our policies, procedures and practices ensure consistent quality in the services and management that we deliver everyday to our clients.
