PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN US
At Grapefruit we recognise that it’s our responsibility to be as sustainable as possible in all that we do and push ourselves to offer the highest levels of service we can. We are proud to have achieved ISO 9001:2015, ISO:14001:2015, ISO 20121:2012 and OHSAS 18001:2007 certification from the British Assessment Bureau. This demonstrates our commitment to customer service and quality in delivery, environmental impact, sustainable events and operating in a safety environment, in the UK and worldwide.
“We’re particularly pleased to have achieved certification for all four standards as it underlines our commitment to our customers and our focus on quality. Not many customers get to see what happens in the background of a company and this recognition demonstrates we can provide a quality solution from quotation to delivery.”
ISO 9001 was first introduced in 1987 and requires organisations to demonstrate that they do what they say they do, and that they have a Quality Management System in place to ensure consistency and improvement; leading to high levels of performance and customer satisfaction. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
ISO 14001 was first introduced in 1996 as a British Standard and requires organisations to have an environmental policy and action plan in place to manage their impact on the environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
ISO 20121 is a management system standard that has been designed to help organisations in the events industry improve the sustainability of their event related activities, products and services. It is based on the earlier British Standard called ‘BS 8901 Specification for a Sustainability Management System for Events’ which was first developed in 2007. Due to the high level of interest in BS 8901, it was decided to create an international version of the standard to coincide with the London 2012 Olympics. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
OHSAS 18001 was first introduced in 1999 and requires organisations to assess their risks and implement an effective Occupational Health and Safety Management System to promote a safe and healthy working environment. Certified organisations are committed to continuous improvement and are assessed annually to ensure progress is being maintained.
BENEFITING US AND OUR CLIENTS
Operating in such a considered manner, does not only benefit our environment, but also us as a team and in turn, our clients. We streamline our processes, to reduce our wastage, reduce operating costs and generally be more efficient as a company, which creates a great working environment and boosts morale. This also allows us to pass on any savings and offer our clients competitive rates.
As a client working with ISO approved suppliers such as Grapefruit, you not only in turn improve your own sustainability, but also get an added assurance that our products and services are continuously tested and reliably delivered on time in accordance with our strict quality management system.
