What does ISO44001 mean for your business?

ISO44001 is the formally adopted iteration of the BS11000 Collaborative Working standard.

Recognised internationally, ISO44001 is the de-facto statement about an organisation’s cultural orientation towards the changes in today’s business requirements, in which companies are being asked to consider collaborative solutions to deliver best practice, outcomes and value. The rail industry is particularly focused on delivering projects through collaboration, Network Rail placing this at the forefront of their strategy for infrastructure renewals and maintenance. With their Tier 1 delivery partners increasingly adopting ISO44001 as their reference the supply chain will have to follow, and demonstrating commitment will give your company a competitive edge.

Full certification of your business to ISO44001 is a progressive process. However, attending an introductory course for relevant team members demonstrates awareness and understanding of the key principles. The good news is that this can be easily achieved. Rail Alliance hosts ISO44001 Introductory Courses for individuals and teams at our location at Quinton Rail Technology Centre near Stratford-upon-Avon. Hosted by our very own ISO44001 certified and recognised trainer, Robert Hopkin BEd FInstLM MICW MIET, these short 1-Day sessions are easy to follow (and never dull…!) and certify delegates as having acquired sufficient knowledge in their first step towards ISO44001.

As stand-alone accreditation this represent a notable distinction at the PQQ / Invitation To Tender stage.

Attendance is open to all full and affiliate Rail Alliance members at a cost of £250+VAT per delegate. Non-members can attend (subject to space being available) at a cost of £500+VAT – this includes 6 months’ ‘free’ membership of the Rail Alliance.  Alternatively, you could attend the BSI Introduction to BS11000 seminars at £635+VAT (visit the BSI website for more details).

Corporate group training can be arranged – please contact Rail Alliance to discuss.
