GeoShield were very pleased to achieve their ISO 9001 Accreditation on Thursday, December 6 2018.
What Is ISO 9001?
ISO 9001 is the international standard for Quality Management Systems. By obtaining this accreditation GeoShield have joined with over one million other companies across the world who are using ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems to help their businesses run more efficiently. It demonstrates GeoShields ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.
ISO 9001 contains a set of Quality Principles, which include:
- customer focus;
- engagement of people;
- process approach;
- continual improvement;
- evidence-based decision making;
- relationship management.
As an accredited ISO 9001 company there are numerous processes and procedures that our team are expected to follow which will not only improve the quality of the service we provide but will also give our customers the assurance that they will receive consistent, quality services from our team.
What Are The Benefits To GeoShields Customers?
Because ISO 9001 certification ensures best-practice, other organisations who follow the same process, such as local authorities, have more confidence in the quality of the work we do which speeds up many of the procedures and processes.
ISO 9001 focuses on “continuous improvement”, ensuring that GeoShield will be continuously monitoring their procedures and systems of work and looking for areas they can improve and become more efficient, reduce errors and maintain a high standard of service delivery and also helping us to comply with the many regulatory requirements in our role.
As ongoing business development GeoShield are also currently working towards there next achievement of gaining ISO 14001 Environmental Management accreditation.
