Sunderland based ISO consultancy, Compliant, are celebrating as they secure another national client.
Fire detection and alarm experts, BDS Fire, who are based in Surrey, were keen to grow their business and sought out the advice and expertise of Compliant to assist with gaining the ISO 14001 (environmental) and ISO 45001 (occupational health and safety) standards.
The company, who have provided maintenance support for fire alarm systems at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club (known to us as Wimbledon) since 2018, have a wealth of experience in fire advice, risk assessments and compliance. Looking to invest in their business and reinforce their position as leading fire safety experts, they embarked on gaining the UKAS accredited ISO certifications, helped by Compliant who are also providing ongoing maintenance and surveillance support.
Compliant, who are owned by BSI trained lead auditor, Mark Henderson, have experienced substantial growth during the past two years. With many businesses either looking to grow, tender for public sector opportunities or streamline their processes, their ISO consultancy services have never been as valuable.
When Mark Henderson and Danielle Barry, Compliant’s Marketing & Internal Audit Manager, were invited to meet with BDS Fire on-site at Wimbledon, they of course jumped at the chance.
The tour was led by BDS Fire, Compliance Manager, Graham Hawkins, who explained, “we manage over 15,000 devices here onsite and are moving to a 24 panel network; it’s constantly expanding. At the minute the site covers 56 acres, with 900 Fire alarm call points and court 1 alone has a 12,500 seating capacity.
Having ISO 14001 and 45001 in place ensures that we are complying with health and safety regulations and considering the environment in all of our activities. Compliant have been a great support and we look forward to a successful ongoing relationship.”
Compliant director, Mark Henderson commented “This has been another great site visit for the Compliant team. We take pride in meeting the staff from the companies that we support and getting to see where and how our management systems are being implemented.
The team at BDS have been extremely thorough and we were able to see for ourselves at this impressive site that the environment and health and safety are being considered at every stage of their processes.
We are excited to visit more of BDS Fire’s clients and see how the certifications that we facilitated are being embedded across a range of different locations.”
Digital Marketing and Internal Audit Manager, Danielle Barry added “It’s great to be out and about again after the restrictions and it was fantastic to visit another client on such a prestigious site. Seeing how our management systems are ensuring that the highest standards are met at such a prominent location has been extremely rewarding.
Not to mention it’s always exciting to meet the teams that are implementing our framework in real life situations. These site visits give us a greater understanding of the requirements of the documents that we are developing and how we can make future improvements. Thank you to Graham, BDS Fire and the staff at Wimbledon.”
