Demonstrating a continued commitment to the highest standards of scaffolding with a directly employed workforce.
As a leading specialist scaffolding contractor in the UK, Abscaff are working tirelessly to demonstrate the highest possible standards of scaffolding and safety at work. We work with some of the largest trade bodies, associations and schemes to ensure we have implemented the latest health and safety practices and have the best trained staff in the industry.
We have a wide range of accreditations and are associated with many industry schemes. Take a look:
ISO 14001: 2015
ISO 14001:2015 and its supporting standards such as ISO 14006:2011 focus on environmental systems to achieve this. The other standards in the family focus on specific approaches such as audits, communications, labelling and life cycle analysis, as well as environmental challenges such as climate change.
ISO 9001: 2015
ISO 9001:2015 sets out the criteria for a quality management system and is the only standard in the family that can be certified to (although this is not a requirement). It can be used by any organization, large or small, regardless of its field of activity. In fact, there are over one million companies and organizations in over 170 countries certified to ISO 9001.
This standard is based on a number of quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. These principles are explained in more detail in the pdf Quality Management Principles. Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services, which in turn brings many business benefits.
ISO 45001: 2018
ISO 45001 is designed to prevent work-related injury and ill-health and to provide safe and healthy workplaces.
As an international standard, ISO 45001 crosses geographic, political, economic, commercial and social boundaries. This sets a single benchmark for the management of occupational health and safety. So if your organization operates or trades internationally, you can work to a single standard which can simplify your business.
