CH&Co Group retains ISO certifications across estate

The Brookwood Partnership and ABsolutely Catering are now also included in the Group's certifications

Posted by Alice Savage | May 12, 2017 | Catering & hospitality

CH&Co Group has retained its business certifications in quality management, environmental standards, energy management and health and safety across its portfolio of businesses.  

The Brookwood Partnership and ABsolutely Catering, which merged with CH&Co Group in July 2016, are now also included in the Group’s ISO 9001, ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications.

The auditor was most impressed with the way CH&Co Group complies operationally with its management systems. He praised the competence of all employees and their excellent understanding of their roles within the business, and the detailed training provided to staff. He also highlighted that as well as embedding its management systems, the business has improved upon them. 

In addition, CH&Co Group has added ‘Safe Systems in Procurement’ (SSIP). This umbrella organisation facilitates mutual recognition between health and safety pre-qualification schemes and allows buyers to verify that a contractor holds valid safety certification.

We work very hard to ensure continual excellence operationally, environmentally and from a health and safety perspective -  Bill Toner, CH&Co Group’s CEO

CH&Co Group’s CEO, Bill Toner, said: “It’s very important for our business, our clients and our employees that we have robust management systems in place. We work very hard to ensure continual excellence operationally, environmentally and from a health and safety perspective. The fantastic results of this IMS audit together with our recent success in gaining a RoSPA Gold Award for our health and safety performance, confirms this and I congratulate everyone involved. 

“To have The Brookwood Partnership and ABsolutely Catering included in the certification in such a short space of time is great news and testament to the seamless way in which the merger has been embedded to create a strong team with a common purpose.”
