What are ISO standards, and what do they mean?
ISO Standards are a series of quality management systems that have been created to help organisations ensure that they meet the needs of their customers and employees, while at the same time complying with legal and regulatory requirements with very specific rules on documentation and record-keeping. ISO requires that the same things be done the same way all the time.
ISO is methodical and rigorous, it requires a company to take its production process and break it down into key steps. Each process is analysed to determine what the quality standards should be. The company then decides how it will measure each process to determine if it meets the quality standard they defined. The approach to achieving that quality is documented (in the form of business processes commonly referred to as standard operating procedures).
Some of these processes include employee training, documentation, management buy-in, tool calibrations and records, document control, input material quality verification, and plans for handling non-conforming products. The company performs internal audits and is subjected to external audits to ensure that the processes are being followed and that the product is consistently like the last one and the next one.
What is the Safe Contractor accreditation, and is it applicable to my shed installation?
Safe Contractor is a commercial accreditation designed to prove to clients you've got the right credentials by pooling together all your health, safety and ethical policies in one place. For your at-home shed build, the Safe Contractor accreditation isn’t applicable, however, be rest assured that we do take health and safety seriously when installing your shed.
What is the FSC & BM Trada Accreditation, and what does it mean?
The FSC certification is designed to provide a credible guarantee to customers that products that are sold with a specified FSC certificate code are originating from well-managed forests, controlled sources, reclaimed materials, or a mixture of these. FSC Chain of Custody certification facilitates the transparent flow of goods made from such materials through the supply chain and is issued by BM Trada. All our wooden subfloors are FSC certified.
