SMEs in the manufacturing, services and construction supply chains are increasingly being expected to be accredited to the ISO 9001 quality system or are considering its implementation for other reasons.
The advantages of ISO Accreditation:
- Competitive edge – even in situations or industries where ISO 9001 Accreditation is not a contractual requirement or expectation it can set you apart from the competition
- Best practice – ISO 9001 can improve process and service quality, increase customer satisfaction levels and improve productivity
- Easy integration – the implementation of ISO 9001 makes it simpler to develop a single management system to meet the requirements of other standards including those for Environmental and Health & Safety, saving on duplication and cutting down those costs
We deliver ISO workshops, in-house training and consultancy aimed at assisting SMEs in East Lancashire & the Yorkshire and Humber region to support their current and projected business objectives by enhancing the Quality Management System (QMS) skills of their key personnel.
Participants will be able to apply a systematic approach to the implementation or further development of an ISO 9001 compliant system within their organisations and will gain an understanding of how that can have a positive impact on business competitiveness.
"My colleagues and I attended a 3-day In-depth ISO 9001 training course delivered by Airedale Enterprises in Market Weighton. Knowing little about what appears to be a very complicated process initially, we were impressed with the clear, concise, step-by-step approach from David, our tutor, who explained the Standard in a way that we could understand and relate to our organisation. We are now working towards accreditation and are delighted that Airedale are genuinely interested in our success, remaining in contact periodically to check on our progress".
Thank you for your help David and Airedale – it would have been a much tougher journey without you!
