Whilst there are many ISO Certifications to choose from when looking at management systems for your company, the main two ISO certifications organisations opt for are the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 45001:2015 Standards within the Care Industry.
Investing and implementing the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 requirements will show your customers and suppliers that you are committed to Quality Assurance and Occupational Health and Safety. By adopting these standards and requirements you are cultivating a culture of continuous improvement in your processes and procedures along with managing risk.
The ISO 9001:2015 will help your company in your planning and processes through the control of document management and records. In addition, it shows traceability by documenting non-conformances and reducing the risk and improving services. The ISO 45001:2018 was released in March 2018 and any organisation with OHSAS 18001:2007 will have 3 years to transition to the new requirements. It is designed to improve levels of workplace safety and employee health and wellbeing. Within the standard having the participation and consultation of your employees will not only benefit your company but improve staff morale.
The benefits of adopting ISO standards into your company are endless when implemented correctly and by achieving third party certification, you will have the added endorsement that demonstrates to external parties that you have achieved full compliance with a specific standard. This will not only give you a competitive advantage but streamline your processed and improve the overall running you’re your business within the Care industry.
