Ryan’s Cleaning Event Specialists recently celebrated their triple crown of best practice certifications which were awarded by Certification Europe at Fairyhouse Racecourse, Meath, Ireland on 8th April. ISO Certification Body Certification Europe audited the event cleaning company''s management systems against the requirements of ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environmental) and OHSAS 18001 (Health and safety).

To achieve certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001, Ryan’s Cleaning Event Specialists underwent a number of voluntary audits by the accredited certification registrar Certification Europe.

Speaking at the award ceremony of the ISO 14001, ISO 9001 and OHSAS 18001 certificates Ciarán O’Malley Business Development manager at Certification Europe stated “Achieving these certifications shows that Ryan’s Cleaning Event Specialist is operating to international best practice in relation to quality, environmental, health and safety management. This triple crown of certifications really confirms that Ryan’s Cleaning Event Specialists is a company that is customer focused, environmentally conscientious and a safe company to work for.”

ISO 9001 is probably the world most recognised standard with over one million companies worldwide certified to date. To comply with ISO 9001 Ryan’s Cleaning Event Specialists developed robust quality procedures and protocols to ensure their clients’ needs were met and service delivery was performed to the highest standard. An organisation would be unable to achieve certification to ISO 9001 without top management commitment towards quality and with a focus on customer satisfaction.

The Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001 required Ryan’s Cleaning Event Specialists to establish an environmental policy and analyse the organisation’s impact on the environment. A commitment to reduce the footprint on the environment has been strategically implemented and the ISO 14001 certification from Certification Europe shows that the company is serious about being environmental conscious. The ISO 14001 standard assists large scale event organisers in identifying Ryan’s Cleaning as a “green” option for their cleaning requirements.

The OHSAS 18001 standard established in 2007 is a set of requirements for an international best practice occupational, health and safety management system. OHSAS 18001 certification highlights that the company has implemented stringent work safety practices, risk assessment and legislative compliance procedures.

Pat Ryan MD “We are delighted to have achieved the certifications and we strive to improve our business practices and our impact on the environment. We are only the second cleaning companies in Ireland with all three certifications and have recently won the Small Firms Associations Environmental Award 2012, which is testament to our commitment.”
