The McAllister Group recently retained its ISO accreditations following an in-depth audit by IMS International, a UKAS Accredited Certification Body providing third party ISO certification audits. The Group passed the following reassessment audits with zero major or minor non-conformances: –
- ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems
- ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems
- OHSAS 18001 – Health and Safety Management System
The Audit assessment stated that the management system in place has grown to meet the ever-expanding needs, size and complexity of the Group to place the company in a good position to transition to the newly updated ISO9001: 2015 and ISO14001: 2015 in 2018.
Praise was bestowed on our garage and site teams for vast improvements in the control and management of the garage, yard and site locations. The Group’s HSEQ Manager, Laura Morgan was singled out in the assessment for the efforts undertaken for the audit and for ensuring the management system was operating effectively and efficiently, thereby meeting the needs and expectations both of company personnel and clients. Going forward the Group plan to support the annual review with monthly management meetings to ensure that all pertinent issues are communicated and to ensure the effectiveness of the management system endures. Objectives have also been established that will contribute to the continual improvement of the company.
