Waste: out of sight cannot be out of mind.

Tuesday 24th July 2018

Waste. You bin it and forget it. Pat yourself on the back for recycling into your blue bin, brown bin, grey bin and food waste bin. Happy days. Once all your debris is sorted into those cheerful, colour-coordinated wheelies, and that big noisy lorry arrives, they’re someone else’s problem. Aren’t they? After all, you’ve done […]




Because Health & Safety is everyone’s business: ISO 45001

Tuesday 22nd May 2018

In March 2018, amidst the worst snowfalls the UK has yet seen, a keenly awaited new standard was published. ISO 45001:2018 is the world’s first International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), and replaces its British predecessor OHSAS 18001. Why the change? An international standard was needed, to address working conditions, workplace injury and […]




ISO standards as a lingua franca

Friday 11th August 2017

Bring two people together who don’t speak the same language and they are mutually incomprehensible. Little, if anything, can be achieved. But give them a common tongue – a lingua franca – and they can understand each other, negotiate, share ideas, trade, improve and innovate. This is exactly what ISO Standards do. They’re a set […]

ISO 45001: live long and prosper

Monday 20th June 2016

John F Kennedy once said: ‘Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.’ Heck, that man could deliver a line. But there’s more to his words than political spin. They’re relevant today, and every day – especially in business. Every business […]




Health and Safety – take your home to work with you

Friday 20th May 2016

‘Health and Safety’. It’s the butt of stand-up comedians and broadcasters everywhere. The phrase is usually accompanied by a theatrical roll of the eyes, with maybe a bad Cockney accent thrown in for good measure. We blame it for nonsensical decisions, extra work and red tape – anything that spoils a bit of fun. ‘Elf […]




Always bite your coin: the importance of using UKAS accredited certification bodies

Thursday 28th April 2016

Where did all the Westerns go? Saturday mornings used to be full of rattlesnakes, quicksand, varmints, and grubby cowboys biting down on gold coins.

ISO 9001:2015 transition – don’t be afraid of the dark

Wednesday 10th February 2016

It’s a terrible thing, the unknown. In the dark, that dressing gown on the back of the door becomes an axe-wielding maniac, and there’s untold devilry hiding under the bed too. The day has its own perils, caused by this same fear. We’ve all had it – the nauseous dread about that tough new project […]
