Business Management Systems
& ISO Certification
Your people are the most important part of your business.
Your business management system is one of the next most important parts of your business.
Ask yourself these questions:
Is my business able to demonstrate compliance with regulations and standards?
Are my essential business processes and objectives clearly defined?
Is my business-critical knowledge only available in the heads of a few staff members? What if they leave or something happens to them?
Am I frustrated with inconsistency in safety, quality and reporting on my projects?
Are my clients asking for certification against certain standards? SSIP, ISO etc?
We know the struggle it takes to decide the best possible way to implement the ISO standards, not to mention how many questions might come up throughout the process. By using our service, you never have to worry about uncertain issues – you get an expert who supports you along the way.
We can provide the documents that will satisfy all the main ISO Standards
A formal management system or framework can help you manage your business more effectively and efficiently.
It is your decision whether to have one or not.
OK I need a Management System, but I have no idea how to start.
This is where Green Hat Consulting can help you and your business.
Firstly, we look to establish what it is you need. Green Hat do not do standard systems, we adapt them to suit individual companies. There are many common forms and procedures that may be available, but they will be adapted to suit your company’s specific way of working. Many companies have their own forms or procedures that may require updating or may need new documents created from scratch.
Some companies may need systems to comply with regulations, customer standards or achieve certification to certain industry standards such as SSIP or ISO standards etc.
Five Stages to Certification:
Green Hat will take you through these five key stages:
We carry out a Gap Analysis to determine the gap between your existing management system against the requirements of the ISO standard. The resulting Gap Analysis report is used as a basis for developing an action plan for ISO implementation.
We help you develop and document your management system based around your core business processes. We then review, approve and distribute the documents to the relevant persons within your organisation.
We help ensure the new procedures are being used as described within your procedures. Develop appropriate reporting systems for inspection, testing, corrective actions, customer satisfaction management reviews etc.
Monitor, analyse and evaluate the effectiveness of the system taking action to improve areas where necessary.
Our auditors will carry out audits and review the processes and system for compliance and effectiveness. Observe, interview people and look at sample documented information reporting on the relative strengths and weaknesses of the system taking corrective action as needed.
We help select the most appropriate certification body for your company, registering the company and preparing for the initial certification visits on the way to full certification. We also attend the certification visits if required to help you through the process.
Green Hat will ensure that you do not Focus too much on the formal documentation of your management system as this can distract you from addressing the human elements of implementation and the focus becomes the process of the system itself rather than actually controlling risks or improving business processes.
We then help review, approve and distribute the documents to those who need access to the information.
Green Hat will help you find a suitable certification company to visit and certify your company to the relevant ISO Standards.
However, not all companies require certification to ISO standards. Some companies simply require a bespoke management system to help them carry out their works efficiently and consistently, improve company image, satisfy insurance or other bodies and achieve certification to various SSIP scheme, Constructionline etc.
Our aim is to help you implement a clear and usable quality management system that delivers effective and efficient management processes.
