NY Highways gets ISO accreditation

North Yorkshire-based highways maintenance business NY Highways has achieved health and safety, environmental and quality ISO accreditations, which it says are set to help grow its operations.

The Integrated Management System (IMS) team at NY Highways undertook a nine-month project, working with colleagues to ensure processes and procedures were implemented within the business.

The IMS team consists of performance analyst and IMS advisor Elisabete Moreira, IMS coordinator Yvette Clayson, senior HSEQ advisor Tariq Anwar and business manager Richard Whitaker. For the accreditation audit, they were assisted by a specialist consultancy firm, Fenn Environmental.

The external audits took place in early-mid December, with NY Highways gaining accreditation to ISO standards 45001, 14001 and 9001. It’s expected these certifications will help the business to grow, allowing NY Highways to operate commercially.

NY Highways’ managing director, Jamie Crumlish, said: “The hard work and commitment put into achieving certification to quality, environmental and health and safety standards are something that all within NY Highways can be very proud of. The attainment of certification will allow NY Highways to conduct its activities in a controlled, coordinated and compliant manner, providing a platform for continual improvement and growth of the business.

“A special thanks goes to the IMS team and all of our colleagues that were involved in the audit process. Thank you and well done.”
