IFT has always taken matters of regulatory, voluntary and contractual compliance seriously and it has been a busy month as our systems have their annual audit. We are delighted that our Environmental Management System and Quality Management System have once again passed ISO accreditation. We have achieved third party certification to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 since 2011.
Health and Safety is another area where IFT has many years of experience of complying with legal, contractual and additional voluntary regulations in order that we maintain the health and safety of our onsite operatives, office support staff and managerial team alike. We recently passed both the Achilles Building Confidence standard again (for the 6th year running) and our annual Constructionline accreditation. Constructionline is the UK’s largest register of contractors, consultants and material suppliers for the construction industry.
A number of IFT employees have also gained their CITB SMSTS (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme) Certificate. This adds to our pool of already qualified supervisors and helps to further ensure compliance of our site responsibilities with regards to health, safety, welfare and the environment.
