A. Priced Contract with Activity Schedule

D. Target Contract with Bill of Quantities

IMS System

We can help companies develop an integrated management system (IMS) that combines quality, occupational health and safety and environmental procedures into realistic business processes that any company can manage in order to become certificated.

The three standards covered are:

Quality Management ISO:9001
Environmental Management Systems ISO:14001
Occupational Health & Safety ISO:45001

We work alongside companies to develop a suitable system in order to achieve their integrated management certification and live it. We do not believe in producing a manual of procedures that will sit on the shelf gathering dust only to be unearthed prior to each external audit. Many companies require these three standards as a prerequisite to qualify for work with them. To achieve the standard is not as daunting as you would expect but applied using sympathetic methods it can transform a company.
