Zest Recycle successfully transitions to ISO 45001
After a comprehensive 4-day audit process by DNV, we are delighted to announce that Zest Recycle has successfully achieved transition to the new health and safety standard ISO 45001 and received a positive ‘health check’ for ISO9001 and ISO14001. These standards provide the reassurance our customers, employees and partners need, in the safe and compliant operation of our business and our ability to provide our customers with the highest standards of service.
The key objective of the audit is to determine the conformity of our management system with the standards and to evaluate its effectiveness to ensure Zest Recycle is capable to achieve specific objectives and meet statutory, regulatory and contractual requirements.
The audit focused on a number of areas across the business and Zest Recycle achieved the highest possible ratings in areas relating to service provision and sound waste management practices. This considered a number of innovations and new systems implemented across the business since our last audit including the recent rebrand and repositioning of the company and our approach to sustainable supply chain management.
Tony McPartland, Managing Director commented: “This is another fantastic milestone in the journey of Zest Recycle since we rebranded earlier this year. The auditor not only recognised the transformation of our brand focused on sustainable growth for the business, but also the hard work we have done around our supply chain network and our sales and marketing communications, reporting ‘excellent focus on continual improvement’. We couldn’t ask for a better accolade and we look forward to delivering many more future successes.”
Lorraine Harrison, Auditor commented: “The DNV external audit took place last week, from 13-16 September. The focus areas for the audit included, integration of business processes within the Windsor Integrated Services Group (of which Zest Recycle is a part of), service provision, and waste management practices that ensure legal compliance. The overall result of the audit was positive, and on the basis of audit evidence, the management system has successfully transitioned to the new ISO Standard for Occupational Health & Safety, ISO 45001. Continued certification to ISO 9001 and 14001 has also been achieved.”
