Fortis Vision’s Accreditations and Certifications

Fortis Vision takes pride in its various accreditations and certifications. These include three International Organisation for Standardisations (ISO) Accreditations, the EcoVadis Gold Medal Sustainability Rating, CHAS, Constructionline Gold and SafeContractor.

Accreditations and certifications are important to Fortis Vision because they verify the quality of our work and demonstrate that we have sound financial, administrative, operational and oversight practices that can inspire the confidence of third parties as Fortis Vision continues to grow.

 

“Our employees follow all our processes, procedures and assessments, feeding back when improvements can be made. Their input is invaluable to everything we achieve; it’s a great team effort! We believe that obtaining these accreditations and certifications places Fortis Vision in a very select group, and, for us, it’s all about continual improvement.”

“Without the commitment and support from everyone in the company, we would be unable to achieve any accreditation or award.”

Linda Todd, Management Support Officer.

ISO9001:2015

ISO 9001:2015 is a Quality Management System (QMS) which is internationally recognised as the world’s leading quality management standard. The purpose of the standard is to assist Fortis Vision in meeting statutory and regulatory requirements relating to our business whilst achieving excellence in our customer service and delivery.

ISO14001:2015

ISO 14001 is the international standard for environmental management systems (EMS) and the most widely used EMS globally. ISO 14001 is the principal management system standard which specifies the requirements for the formulation and maintenance of an EMS. This helps Fortis Vision to control our environmental aspects, reduce impacts and ensure legal compliance.

ISO45001:2018

ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable Fortis Vision to proactively improve our OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health. ISO 45001 enables Fortis Vision through its OH accreditations management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as employees’ wellness and wellbeing.

EcoVadis Gold Medal Sustainability Rating
