Obviously there are a number of actions to be taken on the first day back at work:
- Review the email in box; there are loads to look at; most are junk but it does take time to sort the wheat from the chaff.
- Watch out for the inevitable virus attachments; we received a remittance advice from a company in Essex (not one of our Clients) which if opened would have infected our computer system. In case you wondered, we didn’t open it.
- Get prepared for the two main Standards, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, to progress towards publication.
These proposed dates are June 2015 for ISO 14001:2015 and September for ISO 9001:2015.
Certificated holders of 9001 and 14001 will have a generous transition period once these Standards are published. If you need help with these then please let us know.
Finally, we suggest that you review your processes and look for ways to make these more efficient and effective. Continual improvement and awareness of new legislation plus vigilance for cyber issues will ensure that 2015 is a good year. It will also be our 24th year in business.
