What is ISO 9001 certification?

The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is an independent, non-governmental international organisation made up of 165 national standards bodies committed to developing voluntary, consensus-based international standards which support innovation and provide solutions to a range of global challenges.

The ISO has developed over 2,300 international standards covering virtually every aspect of technology and manufacturing including quality management, health and safety management and environmental management.

ISO standards are essentially a best-practice roadmap, providing detailed, actionable steps on how to perform various work processes in the safest and most efficient way possible. These standards are developed by internationally recognised experts on the subject.

Which ISO certifications can you help with?

At BusinessBasics we offer ISO consultancy services for three distinct ISO certifications: quality management (ISO 9001), health and safety management (ISO 45001) and environmental management (ISO 14001) along with complementary services for each discipline including training, auditing and management.

Quality Management

ISO 9001

ISO 9001 is the international standard outlining the requirements for a quality management system (QMS). The goal of a QMS is to increase customer satisfaction, improve your processes, and increase profits by ensuring consistently high quality in your products or services along with a commitment to ongoing improvement.

ISO 9001 improves profitability and streamlines business processes. ISO 9001 certification is held by more than 1 million businesses worldwide, making it the most popular standard in the ISO 9000 series. At BusinessBasics we provide ISO 9001 consulting services to businesses from a wide range of sectors including retail, mining, civil, health and construction. 

When it comes to ISO certification Brisbane businesses of all industries and sizes can benefit. ISO 9001 compliance leads to streamlined management and reduced labour costs thanks to the elimination of double handling and unnecessary paperwork along with greater customer satisfaction.

Health and Safety Management

ISO 45001

According to the International Labour Organisation, or ILO, over 7,600 people die from work-related illnesses and accidents every single day. The International Organisation for Standardisation created the international standard OHSAS 18001 in response. This standard was designed to minimise workplace risks, reduce injuries and illnesses, provide safer working conditions and improve employee safety. In March 2018 this standard was replaced with ISO 45001 which took a more holistic approach to workplace health and safety. 

ISO 45001 requires organisations to look at both health and safety risks and opportunities for future improvement with a focus on continual improvement. This standard also focuses on a holistic health and safety approach, encompassing physical and mental wellbeing.

At BusinessBasics, we help businesses of all shapes and sizes become ISO 45001 certified. 

Our expert team is here to help your business become ISO 45001 compliant with our thorough, efficient ISO consultancy service. Our certification consultants will complete a gap analysis of your current OHS management system and identify areas of non-compliance. We’ll then help to develop a plan addressing those areas of non-compliance, including the development of new safety systems and processes. We can also provide training for your staff so they can effectively navigate and implement the new safety system.

Environmental Management

ISO 14001

ISO 14001 was developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation to provide companies with a framework and roadmap for enhanced environmental sustainability. Not only does this standard focus on minimising your business’s impact on the environment, it also provides practical steps for minimising costs and making your organisation more efficient. 

Over 300,000 companies and organisations across the world are already ISO 14001 certified.

At BusinessBasics, we can help your business achieve ISO 14001 certification by developing an ISO 14001 compliant environmental management system tailored to your business.

The goal of ISO 14001 is to improve your business’s environmental performance and minimise its negative impact on the environment by making your activities, products, and services more environmentally sound.

Businesses of all shapes and sizes can improve their environmental performance through ISO 14001 certification. 

Some positive impacts of an ISO 14001 compliant environmental management system include:

  • Streamlined, systematic management of environmental responsibilities
  • Improved environmental performance and sustainability
  • Fulfilment of ISO 14001 compliance obligations
  • Improved efficiency 
  • Reduced business costs
  • Reduced waste output 
  • Reduced energy usage

ISO 14001 certification will help you to reduce waste, maximise resources, minimise environmental impact and improve sustainability. It also proves to your stakeholders that you are committed to protecting the environment. Customers value commitment to environmental sustainability. With an ISO 14001 compliant environmental management system in place, you’ll be able to manage customer expectations while minimising your impact on the environment.

At BusinessBasics, it’s our goal to make ISO 14001 compliance simple.
