Kaizen Strategies support
Throughout the process of implementing your management system, our consultant will guide and train you in all the new operations which you may not have previously been doing, for example internal audits. However, if you still feel you want that added security of knowing that a team of consultants are a phone call away then maybe our on-going maintenance service is for you.
Our on-going service, or maintenance as we call it, is a service whereby you are only a phone call away from professional advice and support. The consultant you have been working with through the implementation of the management system will be tasked with carrying out all your internal audits and chairing your management review meeting in accordance with your internal audit programme. The consultant will also be available to answer any queries you have, update you on the latest legislation and regulations and help you extend your scope of activities should this be required.
Kaizen Strategies provides consulting services to meet the requirements of ISO 9001, HACCP, BRC, FSSC 22000, ISO 14001, ISO 22000 and ISO 45001. Whether you are looking for a small amount of guidance or start to finish project support, we have the solutions to help your organization. Use our structured approaches that have proven results or let us work with you to design an approach to meet your unique needs.
Whatever your project requires, our industry experts will work with you to achieve the values that you and your customers demand: profit, customer satisfaction, product quality, performance improvement, and bottom line results. Our team offers a mix of technical expertise and industry acumen. We provide the ability to meet team goals, eliminate delays, reduce project costs, and deliver results. Every one of our projects is designed with successful implementation in mind.
Internal audits can be extremely beneficial when done correctly. They help you “find and fix” problems during and post implementation. An internal audit is one of the most effective tools in the ISO toolkit for ensuring a certain level of discipline in performance as well as driving long term continuous improvement.
Subcontract Internal Audits for businesses and organizations is one of the many capabilities that Kaizen Strategies provides that will improve your business processes as well as insure you are maintaining and improving an effective Management System.
The majority of ISO standards require periodic internal audits to determine whether the Quality Management System conforms to the applicable ISO Standard as well as the organizations established process documentation and activities. Also, internal audits are expected to determine if the Management System is effectively implemented.
Kaizen Strategies can conduct onsite supplier audits on your behalf to insure suppliers have the ability to support your business and are conducting themselves in accordance with your requirements. Supplier audits are an effective tool for monitoring supplier performance as well as for mitigating the inherent risks associated with the contractual relationships with your suppliers.
Kaizen Strategies will:
- Design the most effective Internal Audit Program to evaluate your company business processes.
- Provide systematic and constant monitoring of your system.
- Develop and maintain a tailored and customized Master Audit Schedule that focuses on “process auditing”.
- Prepare all applicable documentation prior to each audit.
- Co-ordinate and conduct all required Internal Audits within the defined audit cycle.
