Sodexo Ireland wins hat trick of quality standards
January 23, 2015
Sodexo Ireland has gained accreditation in ISO 9001, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:2007.
The ISO 9001 accreditation in Health & Safety and Environmental & Quality Management now encompasses the full range of services it provides to clients, which includes catering, security, support services and building maintenance.
The company also gained ISO 14001: 2004, an internationally applied standard designed to measure and improve the way in which natural resources are used and disposed of by an organisation.
OHSAS 18001:2007 measures how occupational health and safety management systems are managed across the business.
To highlight the company’s success, Margot Slattery, managing director took part in a photocall with John Kane, health & safety executive, Sodexo Ireland and Steve Stubley, technical director for Alcumus, a leading certification services group which carried out the auditing process.
John Kane oversaw the accreditation project for the Republic and Northern Ireland and he said, “ISO and OHSAS allow a company to benchmark its existing management systems and processes against best international practice and make any necessary improvements. These accreditations demonstrate to our clients that Sodexo is now delivering the highest quality standards of service to them on a daily basis.”
Margot Slattery, managing director of Sodexo Ireland, said, “We’re very proud of our quality ‘hat trick’ and many thanks to John Kane for all his hard work on the project and to all our management and support teams who worked on the auditing process and helped to make this happen.”
