Management Systems

Adopting a safety management system can help your company become more efficient, retain staff, save money and grow in both stature and reputation.

Each management system is based on the “plan-do-check-act” management model and embodies the principle of continual improvement as exemplified in the British Standard for quality assurance systems.

Whether you intend to achieve accreditation to a recognised standard or simply wish to improve the performance of your business, M.E.L. can help you establish and maintain a management system that is perfectly suited to your organisation.  For more information about safety or quality management systems or to arrange a free consultation with one of health and safety professionals please contact us on 01708 555544 or Enquiry Form

ISO 9001
ISO 9001:2015 is the internationally recognized standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS).

ISO 9001 provides a framework and set of principles that ensure a common-sense approach to the management of your organisation to consistently satisfy customers and other stakeholders. In simple terms, it provides the basis for effective processes and effective people to deliver an effective product or service time after time.


ISO 45001 / OHSAS 18001
ISO 45001:2018 joins OHSAS 18001 as one of the International ISO standards for Occupational Health and Safety Management (OH&S).

ISO 45001 is right if you and your organisation need to demonstrate a commitment to managing the safety of workers and interested parties.

Organisations that implement ISO 45001 need:

  • A clear management structure with defined authority and responsibility;
  • Defined objectives for improvement, with measurable results;
  • A structured approach to risk assessment and reduction;
  • Health & safety management failures, performance and the review of policies and objectives regularly monitored to ensure improvements and business benefits are realised and prioritised accordingly.
