Cousins completes first integrated ISO Audit


18th June 2021


After several years of having separate external audits of each of our ISO Management Systems, we are delighted to have completed the first fully integrated audit of our ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 Management Systems.

Over an intense four days, auditors from the British Standards Institute audited our full Environmental Management (ISO 14001), Quality Management (ISO 9001) and Occupational Health & Safety Management systems (45001), inspecting our Head Office processes, as well as focusing on the operations of our Group company Cousins Building & Refurbishment Ltd. Group HSEQ Manager Graham Williamson said, “we are delighted to have passed such a demanding assessment of how effectively our management systems comply with the standards and also control our business activities with no major conformances, and only three minors”.

Commenting on our efforts, Anita Sticklen, Operations Manager at BSI, said:

“Cousins Group has achieved a significant milestone in their certification against some of the world’s most widely recognized Quality Management Standards, ISO 9001 Quality Management System, ISO 14001 Environmental Management, ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety.

“By achieving these standards Cousins Group has embedded a process based approach in to their organisation, ensuring consistent performance and service.

“We are pleased to have worked with Cousins Group on moving towards an integrated assessment approach and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them on their achievements to date.”

Cousins Group takes third party assessment of our business very seriously as part of the process of continual improvement, and we are pleased this has been recognised in our latest audit.

A big thank you to our team for this achievement!
