DavyMarkham’s management team selected certification to BS EN ISO18001 as a project to focus on, in order to drive continuous performance improvements into its management systems throughout the business and to cement a change of culture.

The project was driven by a desire to ensure that the commercial success of the firm was matched or exceeded by attention to standards of risk reduction. The whole of the 200+ strong work force was involved in an important review leading to a systematic process of change, improvement and realignment. The company wanted to place safety at the heart of day-to-day operations.

Kevin Parkin, Managing Director, said “the safety of staff on site and at installations is my number one priority and we have been able to back up this commitment with the achievement of an international standard. Our certification marks a reinforcement that will deliver a more robust system of protection for the employees and company alike.”

Dr John Trainor, founder and Managing Director of consultants E9 Limited explained “Safety management is recognised for the primary benefits in the protection of heath and prevention of accidents and injury, however, the adoption of the right culture, one that accepts safety as an engineered-in part of the process, can also lever very significant commercial benefits, if correctly implemented.”
