W.Howard retains multiple ISO standards.
W.Howard has been successfully recertified for the ISO9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 standards for another year. This accreditation demonstrates the company has quality management systems in place that meet international standards.
Organisations use ISO9001 to demonstrate their ability to provide products and services that meet the regulations and satisfy their customer’s requirements.

OHSAS18001 covers occupational health and safety management. Achieving this standard demonstrates that W. Howard has a safe, healthy work environment, identifying and controlling health and safety risks to reduce potential for accidents and improving the company’s overall performance.
The standards are managed by Alcumus ISOQAR in line with UKAS Management Systems, the body for UK national standards.
