Burges Salmon is a leading law firm based in the centre of Bristol with an impressive collection of certificates! The firm holds certification to ISO 9001 (quality), ISO 14001 (environmental), ISO 27001 (information security) and ISO 22301 (business continuity).
Having worked with the Operations team to update the environmental management system in 2018, HKW Risk Management was called in to work with the new Health and Safety Advisor to update the health and safety management system. The system had been through various hands and was recorded in a range of documents which now needed reviewing and consolidating. There is currently no business need to gain certification to ISO 45001 (health and safety) but the decision was taken to write the new health and safety manual using the Annex SL structure so that there was some parity across all the existing management systems and if certification is required in the future, the structure is already in place.
The outcome of the project was a vastly simplified and shortened manual which can be used as a signposting document to further information and other areas of the management systems.
