Shed Grounds Maintenance

Shed Grounds Maintenance have announced that it has completed the transition and certification of its quality and environmental management systems to the latest ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards – 12 months ahead of the deadline.
Peter Botham, Managing Director of Shed Grounds Maintenance, said,
“We are committed to ensure that our business meets the highest standards of quality and environmental management. We made it a priority to achieve the transition to the new standards which we are proud to have attained a full 12 months ahead of the deadline for compliance.”
Botham continued,
“The new standards are very much in alignment with our DNA – they ensure that our management systems are fully integrated with our business strategies. In order to achieve the transition, we were able to demonstrate Shed’s commitment to the key changes and that our processes reflect the aspects, impacts and risks we see as a business as well as the context in which we operate. Achieving the transition to the new standards proves to our clients and employees that our management and environmental systems are central to our operation, continue to be of the highest standard and fully conform to the latest best practice.”
ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 standards were published in their final form in September 2015 and are the first major revision of the standards since 2000. Key changes include greater emphasis on building a management and environmental system suited to each organisation’s particular needs. This includes a requirement that those at the top of an organisation are involved and accountable. It also introduces risk-based thinking to make the systems a preventive tool and a platform for continuous improvement. The deadline for achieving compliance is September 2018, after which an organisation not certified to the new standard is no longer compliant.
Carla Whyte, UK Senior Client Propositions Manager at BSI commented: “By gaining certification to both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, Shed Grounds Maintenance has demonstrated that they are carrying out best practice in quality management and environmental management. Certification to these standards will bring a number of benefits including stakeholder confidence, improved business processes and increased customer satisfaction. Shed should be delighted that they’ve achieved this ahead of the deadline.”
