The construction industry is characterised by complex supply chains, formalised procurement processes and a strong focus around health and safety.
Implementing ISO management systems have a proven role in helping drive best practice and improved efficiencies, ensuring increased controls over health and safety and sustainability and to stimulating business growth through enabling successful outcomes in tendering.
The three key ISO standards which are the most relevant for the sector are: ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and ISO 45001 (Health and Safety).
ISO standards have been implemented widely by Tier 1 and Tier 2 contractors across the Construction sector and are being driven out wider across their supply chains.
However, for smaller businesses there is generally a lack of understanding around the implementation and certification process, a shortage of internal resources capable and available to undertake the work and at times a fear of getting tied up in unnecessary paperwork and bureaucracy.
This is where Smart Quality comes in.
