Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems

ISO 45001* is an international standard for occupational health and safety
management systems.

ISO 45001 (Formerly BS OHSAS 18001) is an international standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It exists to help all kinds of organizations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance. It is a widely recognized and popular occupational health and safety management system.

Information Security Management Systems

ISO 27001 is an international standard for Information Security management systems.

The standard requires demonstration that the Company has policies and procedures in place that ensure the security of all information, whether that be paper copies or electronic. All processes and equipment must be verified as secure as part of the process of certification to this standard.
This standard applies to a whole range of Companies, for both their own, and their clients security.

Execution of Steel and Aluminium Structures

BS EN 1090 Execution of Steel and Aluminium Structures

BS EN 1090 for structural steel is a requirement for products to be sold in Europe, and any organizations who design and/or manufacture steel components must adhere to this standard.

Whether in the form of steel frames or metal roofing, any structural engineers, component manufacturers, and anyone with a hand in the steel or aluminium based components that go into metal buildings/building work, should be aware of this.
CE marking to BS EN 1090 is now a legal requirement.

Since July 2014, structural steelwork and aluminium fall under the Construction Products Regulation (CPR), which means aluminium or structural steel CE marking must be secured to show compliance with EN 1090-1 (the harmonised European standard that applies to structural metalwork).

This covers any structural component that has been designed and fabricated to meet the BS EN 1991 series of standards (Eurocode 3 and 9) for steel and aluminium structures in buildings.


Having ISO 9001 certification in place will help

It is important to note that your products will not achieve a CE Mark unless you can prove that they have been manufactured under a robust Factory Production Control (FPC) system which meets the requirements of ISO 9001 or a similar quality management system.

Furthermore you must also demonstrate that this quality management process has been independently assessed and certified by an accredited body

If your business is already certified to ISO 9001 and you have been audited by a UKAS accredited body then your processes will already show an element of compliance with the requirements of BS EN 1090.

The requirements of BS EN 1090 ensure that appropriate controls are in place at every stage of the manufacturing process. The standard embraces all processes from the procurement of raw materials through to final inspection and testing. Verification of compliance will include such areas as;

  • Material certification testing and storage
  • Staff training, testing and qualification
  • Equipment calibration
  • Consumable certification and control
  • Quality control and testing of product
  • Control of records and documents,
  • Product identification and marking
  • Internal audit
  • Control of non conforming product

BS EN 1090 sets out four Execution Classes (EXC’s), as given below. These classes are based on the end use of the structure and how critical it would be if it failed:

  • EXC1 – e.g. Agricultural buildings
  • EXC2 – e.g. Residential or Commercial structures
  • EXC3 – e.g. Bridges or Stadia
  • EXC4 – e.g. Special structures (long-span bridges, frames for structures within the nuclear sector and structures within seismic active areas) etc.

(please note that in the case of EXC2, 3 and 4 all welding activities must be controlled by a Responsible Welding Coordinator).
For EXC 3 and 4 there must also be verified welding procedures.

Testimonials

Trusted and used by many major companies.

“Thanks for turning the ISO audit around quickly, your help has been invaluable.

To have 3 management systems in place, audited and accredited in less than 3 weeks was nothing short of amazing.

With all three systems integrated it has simplified my processes and tied together many of the processes that were fragmented.

Once again thank you for your help and ensuring that the systems are understandable and user friendly.”
