Our accreditations

BRITISH SAFETY COUNCIL

As the largest corporate health and safety membership organisation the British Safety Council work alongside members to achieve the vision that no-one should be injured or made ill at work.

Members are supported by introducing them to training, audit and awards schemes.

CHAS

CHAS, or the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme as it is known in its proper form, is a significant scheme promoting the benefits of effective Health and Safety within industries and business. The purpose of CHAS certification is to assist buyers as well as suppliers in the process of health and safety competence assessment.

As a CHAS certified supplier we can save a company hours of time form filling for Health and Safety purposes. It makes it easy for potential clients to gain an insight into our working standards, in terms of health and safety with consistent and continuous improvement.

SafeContractor

SafeContractor accreditation has been achieved following an assessment of NMC’s
health & safety documentation, and compared against the SafeContractor Charter Standards,
which set out the health & safety standards required to achieve accreditation.

ConstructionLine

ConstructionLine is a Government-run scheme, which collects, assesses and monitors our standard company information. It is the largest pre-qualification database in the UK and a leading procurement and supply chain management service.

ConstructionLine members are instantly recognised as aligned with government and industry standards throughout the business, making NMC a more viable choice against those that don’t hold an accreditation.

ISO 9001:2015, 14001:2018, OHSAS 18001

ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system (QMS). Organisations use the standard to demonstrate the ability to consistently provide products and services that meet customer and regulatory requirements.

ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that NMC follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.

OHSAS 18001, Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series, (officially BS OHSAS 18001) is a British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems. Compliance with it enables NMC to demonstrate that we have a system in place for occupational health and safety.
