Clear registers Integrated Management System, and all offices with ISO 9001:2008
Clear Environmental Consultants Limited are pleased to confirm that after a series of external audits, we've been approved for registration with the ISO:9001 Quality Assurance accreditation with ISOQAR.
Operations Director Steve Hogg has said, "Thanks for everyone’s help in embedding the new IMS system so far, especially to those of you who were involved directly with the auditors across the three offices.
We are now focusing on the ISO:14001 Environmental and OHSAS:18001 Health and Safety standards, so lots more to do, but the comments from the auditor suggest that what we have done so far means we are well placed for these two standards in early 2014 as well."
Clear were also audited by Achilles in late November as part of our annual UVDB assessment (which Utility Companies often use as a pre-filter for new work) and we are pleased to confirm that our score across Quality, Environment and Health and Safety have all gone up and are now all over 90%.
Clear would like to thank everyone again for their help and commitment in achieving these fantastic results.
