Leading audiovisual supplier, Aztec Event Services announces it has been awarded UKAS accredited certification meeting the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 (quality management systems), ISO 14001:2015 (environmental management systems) and ISO 45001:2018 (occupational health and safety management systems).
Steve Colesell, Aztec’s Operations Director, has been working alongside Courtney Franklin of Franklin Lawson Associates for several months to ensure successful implementation, including the undertaking of gap analyses, gaining management support, carrying out management system audits, identifying legal requirements, familiarising staff with the standards requirements and delivery of company-wide employee training.
“We are thrilled to have added two further management system standards across the company. Steve outlined “Aztec has held ISO 9001:2015 since its transition but integrating occupational health, safety and environmental management is paramount in adjusting to the ‘new normal’ and new ways of working.
We have a duty of care to ensure our wider support network and freelancers are looked after and we are committed to providing a safe, healthy and more sustainable way of working. Benefits to the business include increasing our organisational resilience through proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement”.
As a technology company, Aztec takes its environmental responsibilities very seriously and we are continuously looking to reduce our impact on the environment as well as meeting customer expectations and building relationships
with the local community. Achieving ISO 14001:2015 is real testament to our environmental dedication and evolution.
Aztec’s External ISO consultant, Courtney Franklin, comments “This achievement of ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018 firmly establishes Aztec Event Services as pioneers within their sector. It demonstrates the emphasis, importance and commitment the organisation places on environmental management and occupational health and safety across the business”.
ISO is an internationally recognised organisation with membership of 167 national standards bodies. They define world-class standards for products, services, and systems.
Aztec has also recently achieved continuing ESSA accreditation and full membership for another year running. The ESSA accreditation recognises high levels of standards that foster and promote continuous quality improvement.
