Over the last 9 months it has become the norm to meet virtually, so we asked several of our customers to say a few words about us during a Teams catch up call.
The first of these was Don Urquhart from BJF Group:
BJF Group decided in Jan 2019 that following the external audit by Alcumus ISOQAR they would embark on the transition journey from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 during 2019. A requirement that had to be met to remain compliant.
To achieve the standards however, involved a lot more record keeping than previously, therefore the My Compliance Management program, recently introduced to BJF (Nov 18) was to be used to assist with the process.
During 2019 the My Compliance APP’s (MY Audit, MY Incident and MY NCR) were deployed further and introduced to more employees to enable them to report data such as Audits, Site Checks. Van checks, Toolbox Talks, Incidents & Accidents, and more, through a single application for recording “My Compliance” using these APP’s. It took a little time to embed fully but by October 2019 BJF were hitting 100% compliance across all divisions which is a great achievement. The standards of Safety and Quality rose as a result.
When the next external audit commenced on the 16th Jan 2020, BJF were able to provide the auditors with the new actions to meet the ISO 45001 standard, incorporated into the Integrated Management System (IMS), displayed the changes made to meet the standards and provide evidence of compliance using the My Compliance system.
My Compliance are the major provider of data for the SHEQ part of the audit and the auditors were impressed with the quality of records plus the ease by which staff could access the records and use the APP’s, when in discussions with them.
