CERTIFIED MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Risk management is becoming a key facet of business life and as such our customers are increasingly moving towards having zero tolerance to any risk. Today companies must ensure compliance with both legislation (Laws passed by Parliament) and Regulations (rules issued by government agencies). To ensure compliance, O’Briens Window Cleaning Services has implemented a well-defined management system with strong control and monitoring of processes and continual improvement.
How O’Briens Window Cleaning Services manages risk is key to building trust and confidence with our customers. The implementation and certification of our Integrated Management System tells our customers and other stakeholders that we are focused on continuous performance improvement with regards to quality, environment and safety related issues. External validation helps us continually improve our strategies, operations and levels of service. Using SAI Global as our certification body guarantees an objective third party validation and benchmarking of our management system and takes O’Briens beyond mere compliance certification onto a path where the approach is risk based.
Having earned the right to use the following logos is a strong validation of the O’Briens management system.
