There are many industry standards which make sure companies achieve good standards in the way they operate, what they do or what they make. In order to be “accredited” the company has to be examined by independent experts. Only those companies who hold a current accreditation are permitted to use the logos.
Interclean has successfully achieved accreditation for the three standards most relevant to our company. These are:
ISO 9001 Quality & Procedures
This deals with the way Interclean operates, how it is organised and the procedures in place to make sure things run smoothly. It also details how we keep records of what we do, keep track of compliments or complaints and what steps we take if anything goes wrong.
ISO 14001 Environmental Management System
Any business activity may affect the environment through the consumption of energy and other resources as well as by the production of waste. Although there are many legal obligations governing companies’ relationship with the environment, we don’t just want to comply because it’s the law, we are committed to minimising the potentially harmful effects of our activities wherever and whenever possible.
We do this by making efficient use of resources, reducing the level of harmful emissions, promoting recycling, as well as by using recycled materials and eco-friendly products. We are also keen to work in partnership with suppliers, clients and subcontractors to minimise the impact of their operations on the environment.
