“I would like to congratulate you on the thoroughly professional manner in which you supported us through the process of gaining OHSAS18001 accreditation. In particular I must ask you to pass on our thanks to your consultant for his knowledge of the process and of our industry, and for the very practical way he mentored our H&S Administrator to be able to manage the process in future".
Temple Construction had a requirement to implement OHSAS18001 and also a tight time-scale in which to achieve certification. We were able to rise to this challenge and gain certification within 5 months through working closely with the business and ensuring we had sufficient on-site presence to ensure that progress was being made, meetings completed and evidence gathered.
We passed a pre audit successfully and then gained certification with just one observation leading to a delighted client as can be seen from the testimonial above.
We have since retained our relationship with the business and been there to support through a major investment by a venture capital firm. Temple has seen continued rapid growth and the certification has allowed the successful tender for major contracts within the water industry. The OHSAS18001 system has also greatly reduced the burden from PQQ's and similar for the major contractors with which the company has close working relationships.
The next stage in our relationship was to begin looking at ISO9001 Management Systems and integrating ISO14001 into the business, integrating the requirements of these standards into the existing project management systems within the business thereby ensuring compliance and reducing the impact of this through making compliance an integral part of day to day project management.
