"Quality Matters in your Business"

Monday, 28 January 2013


The current bad weather has identified a number of omissions  in company Business Continuity Plans. These plans usually concentrate on fire, flood, utility interruption and health scares.  This year it should also include snow and ice. 

Now is the time to review Business Continuity and Disaster recovery plans.

Some elements are:

  • What to do if staff are unable to get in to work;
  • What to do if deliveries cannot be made;
  • What to do if incoming goods cannot be delivered;
  • Purchase rock salt or ice melting products;
  • Check heating, purchase heating oil supplies if appropriate;
  • Ensure that company vehicles are ready to meet the winter;
  • Tyres are correctly inflated;
    • Tyres have at least 1.6mm of tread;
    • Antifreeze is at the correct level;
    • Windscreen washer filled with screen wash solution and not just plain water;
    • Screen scraper and de-icer kept in the vehicle.
  • Computer systems  checked and updated as necessary
  • Uninterruptable power supplies tested and batteries replaced as necessary;
These are just some of the precautions which will make life a little easier until the Spring arrives.

Welcome to 2013

Well it's back to work after a very enjoyable break and time to look again at the Standards that will make your business more efficient and enable you to get more work as a result of gaining an entry qualification to tenders.

Standards to consider:
  • ISO9001 - The Quality Management Standard; always a good standard to put into place and probably the most recognisable Standard in the world.
  • ISO14001 – The Environmental Management Standard; shows that you care about the environment.
  • ISO217001  - The Information Security Standard; most important if you handle or store data or work with or for an organisation that does.
  • ISO200000 -  The IT Service Management Standard;  a good Standard for IT organisations.
  • AS9100- The Aerospace and Defence Standard; this is 9001 extended to meet the strict requirements of the aerospace industry.

These are just 5 of the Standards in which we offer professional consultancy.  All work is guaranteed.

We are proud to boast that every Client proceeding to Assessment has passed the assessment, and at the first attempt since 1991.

If you would like further details or a quote for our services please contact us and we can ensure that you have a Very Happy and prosperous New Year.
