We at Newlay Readymix place a great deal of emphasis on looking after our people and the environment that we operate in. Our safety policies and processes are regularly checked, updated and improved to ensure our standards never fall short of our customer's expectations. For our company to be recently awarded a Bronze accreditation by the Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) is a testament to this.
For those that might not know, FORS is a voluntary accreditation scheme. It incorporates all aspects of safety, fuel efficiency, vehicle emissions and improved operations. The organisation helps fleet operators to measure and monitor performance and alter their systems in order to demonstrate the best practice. This scheme is open to all operators of vans, lorries, mini-buses, coaches and other vehicles; and to the organisations that award contracts to such operators. Voluntary or not, FORS work in partnership to help businesses, regardless of their size, to review and develop an improved way of working that is beneficial to all. Working with FORS, using their toolkits and advise has meant that the Group's Health and Safety culture is continually being improved.
Newlay Readymix Secure the ISO 9001:2015 Standard
Anyone given the task of looking after Quality Management Systems for their organisation will know how much hard work goes into securing and maintaining their accreditations. Subject to the size of the business, QMS's require detailed reviews of policies and procedures and due diligence to ensure everything is in order so the business can continue to provide quality products and services. With this in mind, we're proud to be able to boast that Newlay Readymix have secured the ISO 9001:2015 standard. The current version of ISO 9001, released in September 2015, includes revisions to ensure that not only is the Standard up-to-date, to reflect the changing environment organisations operate in, but that businesses themselves are making transitions within their quality management systems.
