What is the ISO 9001 standard?

Setting the requirements for a quality management system, the ISO 9001 standard emphasises putting customers first. It will improve our efficiency and customer satisfaction while making sure we confirm with statutory and regulatory requirements. More than one million companies, like ours, use ISO 9001 to maintain consistent quality for their customers and achieve business success.

  • Enhanced quality of service
  • Assured quality of service
  • Improved relationships and experiences

RJS Waste Management’s Managing Director, Russell Shrives comments on what achieving the ISO 9001 means for his customers:

 “Achieving ISO 9001 shows an important commitment to our customers. Delivering quality assures them that our work and procedures will be carried out to a high and recorded standard.”        

What is the ISO 14001 standard?

As the waste management industry comes up against environmental hurdles and scrutiny time and again, being welcomed to the ISO 14000 family was also important for us.

ISO 14001, which can be integrated with ISO 9001 quality management for a more streamlined process, provides a structure for a good environmental management system. It helps businesses, like ours, improve their environmental performance with issues relevant to operations such as:

What are the benefits of ISO 14001 for the environment?

The environment is everyone’s responsibility – businesses large and small as well as individual citizens. And anything we can do to improve environmental performance in business will benefit all.

Specifically, enhancements to our environmental performance using ISO 14001 standards will contribute towards the wider global efforts to tackle the climate crisis, including:

  • Prevention of pollution
  • Protection of resources
  • Increase in environmental awareness

Operations Director Jonathan Gotham comments on what achieving the ISO 14001 means for the future of RJS Waste Management’s environmental performance:

“Achieving ISO 14001 shows our clients we take the impact our business has on the environment very seriously. It proves we’ll always strive to lessen our impact on the environment and dispose of any hazardous waste in a compliant manner and source disposal routes that will offer the best options for recycling or re-use.”


What is the ISO 45001 standard?

With over 7600 people dying from work-related accidents and diseases each day (International Labour Organization), workplace safety is a serious matter. Working with hazardous waste such as asbestos-containing materials, RJS Waste Management has always taken occupational health and safety seriously. And the ISO 45001 standard will help us to maintain these requirements for our employees.

Structured like other ISO management systems, ISO 45001 will complement our ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards for optimised business processes.

What are the benefits of ISO 45001 for our employees?

An ISO committee of occupational health and safety experts has created an international standard, which could save around three million lives every year. The framework focuses on three improvements:

  • Increased workplace safety
  • Reduced workplace risks
  • Enhanced workplace health and wellbeing

These improvements will lead to further benefits for our staff and the business, including:

  • Reduced absenteeism and staff turnover
  • Increased staff morale
  • A better health and safety culture, from the top down

Jonathan Gotham also comments on how ISO 45001 will improve health and safety at RJS Waste Management:

“RJS Waste has always placed a high value on the health and safety of both our employees and clients.

It will also help us improve employee safety, increase productivity and identify opportunities for further improvement.”
