Management Systems

A Management System is the smart way of capturing how you do business, meet your legal obligations, obtain certification to ISO standards and demonstrate your duty of care to employees. At FQM we use simple, but very effective techniques which capture exactly how your business operates to identify critical areas to manage and improve.

If you wish to take the hassle out of Managing your ISO and legal compliance requirements, you should consider implementing our QHSE Compliance Software solution to Management Systems.

Quality Management ISO 9001

A Quality Management System (QMS) will help you identify inefficiencies and drive continual improvement throughout your business. In doing so it can:

  • Save money through reduced waste and loss
  • Win more business through tendering and competitive advantage
  • Satisfy customer requirements
  • Increase profit through improved efficiency

By utilising ISO 9001: the benchmark in global quality management, your organisation will be able to deliver consistent results and satisfy the rigours of independent certification audits.

Environmental Management ISO 14001

An Environmental Management System (EMS) will help you identify which aspects of the environment your operation affects and how this impact can be managed. In doing so it can:

  • Ensure legislative compliance
  • Optimise processes to reduce waste and loss
  • Win more business through tendering and competitive advantage
  • Enhance reputation and standing in the business community
Health and Safety Management ISO 45001

Health and Safety Management is a legal requirement for all businesses. A Health and Safety Management System (H&SMS) will help structure a broad range of activities, optimise performance and embed corporate memory within your business. A good H&SMS will:

  • Ensure legislative compliance
  • Engage the workforce
  • Win more business through tendering and competitive advantage
  • Reduce the inefficiency of accidents and error
Information Security ISO 27001

An Information Security (IS) Management System will demonstrate the integrity and security of your corporate information, while identifying inefficiencies and driving continual improvement across your business data management. In doing so it will:

  • Protect information and manage threats
  • Save money through reduced risk exposure
  • Win more business through tendering and competitive advantage

The International Standard ISO 27001 provides a structured framework for reducing or eliminating the possibility of an information security breach at your company and reassures your customers that you are securely managing data.

Other Standards ISO Cert

There are many International Standards in worldwide use today. Using a simple but very effective RACI process mapping technique, FQM can help you design, develop and implement various management systems to meet the requirements of the standards relevant to your business. Our Business Management Systems (BMS) team have extensive experience and competence to deliver fit for purpose systems to meet client and standard requirements.

Audit and Assurance

In order to thrive, organisations must embrace the positives that come from auditing. Whether performing a management system gap analysis audit, internal audits of in house systems, or audits on suppliers and service providers, all audits form a crucial role in the continual improvement of an effective management system.

Whether the requirement is for support with a ‘one off’ audit, or a fully outsourced audit package, beginning with scheduling all the way through to the corrective and preventative action process, FQM can assist, support or fully manage your entire audit programme.

  • The Directors and Senior Management team would like to take this opportunity to thank FQM for introducing the Mango system to us and offer a special thanks to Chris Docherty (MD) for both his support, and patience, throughout the integration phase.

    PJ McFeeley Operations Director, Ferrier Pumps
  • The big advantage with the new Mango system is nothing is left to chance as the system self manages and once something is in the system it is safe, measurable and creates accountability.

    Access to FQM staff has never been an issue and we can keep on top of the audits and improvement actions with regular visits from auditors (not to mention the fact that MD Chris Docherty is our lead auditor).

    Roy James Projects Director, Amos Beech
  • Dean was extremely helpful while he was here completing the audit and he certainly pointed us in the right direction going forward, focusing on company growth.

    Scott Reid Managing Director, Steel Alloys & Services
  • I believe this project demonstrated visible safety leadership in action. I think this was a great achievement and I realise the things that FQM did to make this happen were above and beyond the norm. Thank you for demonstrating such care and concern and ensuring we completed the work incident free.

    Hugh McClure Director of Capital Development Projects, Dana Petroleum plc
  • TR Fastenings employed FQM to help us gain EN1920. Without the active involvement of FQM, the programme would have taken much longer and it is doubtful that we would have achieved a score of 100% on our initial external audit. Overall, we were very impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of FQM and I would have no hesitation in recommending FQM as consultants to implement EN1920.

    Paul Leys Senior Quality Manager, TR Fastenings
  • Thanks very much for guiding us through this process. I appreciate your commitment to ensuring we were fully engaged the whole way through and for driving things forward.

    A professional job well done with a very successful outcome.

    Eamond Murray Managing Director, Albion Drilling Group
  • Excellent understanding of quality and ability to convey this to our business. We would recommend FQM to other businesses.
