Ford & Stanley are pleased to announce that they have passed two audits in as many months.
In July, our ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 processes and procedures were assessed and audited by ACS Registrars Limited. We passed the quality, environmental and health & safety standards with zero major and minor non-conformities.
Less than eight weeks later, we passed our third RISQS audit – upgraded from 3 stars in 2016, to 4 stars in 2017. The audit, conducted on Friday 8th September 2017, was passed with no major and minor conformities and zero observations, which is quite the achievement.
Both auditors praised Ford & Stanley on the growth of the business, our employees’ involvement with the standards and the level of improvement since their initial visits in 2015.
In 2018, it is a companywide objective to become ISO 27001:2013 accredited which will see our information security compliance audited, and with the forthcoming GDPR changes in May, this will leave our employees, candidates and clients all safe in the knowledge that their personal information remains protected at all times.
Office & Projects Manager, Hannah Dimond commented on the recent success “having been a part of the initial implementation in 2015; I know it’s been quite a journey for us and to have achieved this level of this success in our third year, is something I’m really proud of. We are continually improving and finding new ways to innovate – as such, we are already working toward our 2018 objectives.”
