Smithers Rapra guides clients through the process of implementing a management system with a structured and effective method that ensures businesses achieve compliance and certification.
Management systems are systematic frameworks for managing policies, processes and procedures, and cover many aspects of operations including financial success, quality, customer satisfaction, environmental performance, regulatory and legislative conformance and health and safety.
“Smithers Rapra guides clients through the process of implementing a management system with a structured and effective method that ensures businesses achieve compliance and certification,” explains Suzanne Johnston, Manager of the new service.
But the benefits extend beyond compliance. Johnston explains, “A well-executed management system can also help companies streamline and increase profits by managing business risk and promoting customer and stakeholder confidence.”
Smithers Rapra’s new service includes auditing current systems, preparing and developing procedures, processes and policies whilst ensuring that the system and process approach fits individual companies. Our unique insight and understanding of the plastics and rubber industries and its supply chains helps ensure implemented systems are sustainable long-term.
