361 Degrees is proud to announce we have achieved ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications for our management systems.
From consultancy to complete mechanical design and installation projects, we have always emphasised quality and consistency in our mechanical services work. The ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certifications are important confirmation that the processes and policies we employ on every project are of the highest standard.
We have also been awarded a BS OHSAS 18001 certificate, which shows our commitment to occupational health and safety. Most companies are audited for one standard at a time, but we applied for three simultaneously because we are confident in every aspect of our work.
Going a degree further
All three certifications relate to the design, supply and maintenance of air conditioning, heating and controls for the commercial environment. 361 Degrees General Manager Mark Penprase said: “We became the industry leader in mechanical services by offering the best quality designs, installations, and servicing. Customers want to be confident they’ll have the best experience possible and we’re particularly proud of these certifications because they reflect the entire team’s commitment to going a degree further.”
The certificates were awarded by Alumnus ISOQAR after we demonstrated high standards in environmental, occupational health and safety, and quality management systems. The assessment process included full audits of policy documents and working practices, followed by observations of engineers' work on real projects. This will be repeated every six months to maintain the certifications.
ISO 9001: 2008
ISO 9001 is one of ISO’s best known standards. To gain certification, an organisation needs to consistently meet high standards in quality management and strive for continual improvement in processes.
It provides confirmation to customers that we not only meet all statutory and regulatory requirements, but also that we exceed expectations and place customer satisfaction in our products and services at the heart of everything we do.
ISO 14001: 2004
ISO 14001 focuses on environmental management systems and our certification confirms we measure and continually improve our impact. The ISO standards are designed to provide assurance to employees as well as customers that work is carried out efficiently and with the proper regard for environmental responsibilities.
BS OHSAS 18001: 2007
Our BS OHSAS 18001 certification shows we meet internationally recognised standards for occupational health and safety management. These standards help ensure the best possible working conditions for our staff, improving morale and productivity – which in turn leads to a better experience for the customer.
