ASH Group awarded three internationally recognised standards
ASH Group, a leading waste and resources management company, has announced it has been awarded with the ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certificates by World Certification Services, a UKAS accredited award body. The certificates are for the world’s most recognised Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety standards, and will help to ensure the needs and expectations of the ASH Group’s customers are met.
Neil Hassall, the Managing Director of ASH Group, said, “We are thrilled that the hard work across the Group has been recognised, and it provides further proof that the ASH Group is serious about providing a quality service to its customers. As a company with over seven thousand customers, operating multiple sites with environmental permits, it is important that we have the systems in place that enable us to meet our customers’ needs and expectations, in a safe manner and with due regard to the environment. As the ASH Group continues to grow, these certificates and systems will go a long way to ensure that we expand in a systematic and structured way.”
The ASH Group’s Environmental Compliance Manager, Steve Rymill, added, “As a company that holds multiple environmental permits across England and Wales, it is vital that we have appropriate systems in place to maintain compliance with the permits and ensure that waste is only passed to third-parties once we have carried out sufficient due diligence checks. The ASH Group handles over 250,000 tonnes of waste each year, so it is pleasing that our latest certifications recognise that we have effective systems in place to confirm that we meet our, and our customers’, duty of care.”
All of the certificates are valid for three years, with surveillance audits carried out by the assessors every twelve months to check that the management systems are still working.
The award is the latest in a series of accolades and accomplishments achieved by the ASH Group in the past twelve months, with a Corporate Social Responsibility Award, acquisitions of further sites, installation of two fully operational biomass boilers and continued growth across all parts of the business amongst its notable achievements.
