Following a rigorous 2-day assessment, TC Facilities Management (TCFM) has successfully passed three external management systems audits including the new ISO 45001:2018 standard. This and the other new 2015 versions for ISO 9001 and the Environmental audit ISO 14001 were all passed without any non-conformities or observations, emphasising the commitment of TCFM’s senior management to these standards.
The audit took place over two consecutive days and included a comprehensive review of company policies and processes. This was to assess TCFM’s approach to the quality (ISO 9001) and safety (ISO 45001:2018) they provide to their customers and colleagues, as well as the measures they take to minimise TCFM’s environmental impact (ISO 14001) from their operations.
The new ISO 45001:2018 is believed could help, on a global level, save more lives, reduce accidents further and improve employee morale. Organisations have until March 2021 to make the transition to the new standard that came in 2018, replacing the BS OHAS 18001:2007. TCFM’s achievement in making the transition to the new standards is testament to the work of TCFM’s compliance manager Richard Grafham who championed the transition. It also emphasises the senior management’s commitment to these standards.
Brian Mold, TCFM’s QHSE Manager said,
“The successful transition to the new standard along with the renewal of the established standards clearly demonstrates TCFM’s commitment to quality and safety in all that we do and is a tremendous reassurance to our customers that TCFM remains a business you can trust and a huge accolade to all our staff and their hard work.”
