AIM Commercial Cleaning is proud of its hard-earned reputation within the Cleaning Industry and has recently spent some time upgrading their systems to meet UKAS requirements for ISO 9001 - Quality Management, ISO 14001 - Environmental Management and ISO 45001 - the new standard for Health & Safety Management.
AIM has long held QMS registrations in ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 but made the decision at the beginning of the year to make the jump to UKAS requirements whilst updating to ISO 45001 and appointed Alcumus ISOQAR as their new certification provider.
Although the current QMS certifications are due to expire in May, the changeover to a UKAS registered system is set to be complete by July 2019 an obstacle that Consultant Nicola Hull of JR Consultants is adamant will not be a problem moving forward.
Commenting on AIM’s efforts, Nicola said; “Having a UKAS registered system is a huge step for AIM and is something they have wanted to work towards for a number of years. The previous QMS system was a system that wasn’t fully adapted within the Company and what we have developed has had the involvement and buy-in from all departments with a much more pro-active approach moving forward. It’s been great working with AIM throughout 2019, guiding them through the process to achieve these standards and to watch them grow with it.’
James Brown, AIM’s Managing Director, added: “We work hard to maintain the leading reputation we have achieved with our Clients and strive to keep improving by constantly reviewing how we do things. Reviewing and revising our existing management system and bringing it up to UKAS requirements has been a very useful tool and were envisaging it will prove to be very productive for us as a Company. I am very proud of the effort everyone has made to get behind this project and look forward to July when we can announce the new accreditation. In the meantime, our management systems in operation ensure that as a business we continue to provide all our services in line with best practice for Quality, Environment and Health & Safety.”
