Nichola Maher, Environmental Health and Safety Manager at Chubb realised the importance of obtaining ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 accreditation to evolve and stay one step ahead of their competitors.
“We pride ourselves on our customer care, performance and innovation and ISO certification is a key ingredient for Chubb Systems in driving internal and external improvements. Acquiring these standards has also helped us grow our customer base as these standards are often a mandatory requirement on contracts,” says Nichola.
“Securing ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 certification demonstrates that our organisation is committed to tackling environmental issues and is proactively working to minimise impact. We were very keen to be early to get certified to ISO 45001 because we see the benefit the new standard can bring to our business and the marketing edge it provides.”
Chubb had previously been with another leading certification body before transferring to Alcumus ISOQAR. Nichola says: “We felt there were issues with their pricing structure as well as their customer focus. We were contacted by a Business Development Manager at Alcumus ISOQAR and he impressed us with his knowledge and understanding of what we required as a business.”
Nichola adds: “Alcumus ISOQAR gave us the opportunity to integrate the audits for both ISO 14001 and ISO 45001 which not only saves time, but also money. ISOQAR’s ability to prioritise their customers’ needs is very refreshing.”
Chubb has also been very impressed with the auditing experience. “Their level of knowledge is very reassuring. The report presentation is of a much higher standard than our previous certification body,” explains Nichola.
Asked what advice she would offer to other companies who are also thinking about transferring, Nichola has no hesitation in stating: “Our experience has been really positive. We would definitely recommend Alcumus ISOQAR!”
