As ISO 45001 consultants we have helped businesses in London, Kent, Sussex, Surrey, Essex and beyond to achieve ISO 45001 certification. Whether in person or remote consultancy, our experienced consultants will help you implement a valuable ISO management system which is tailored to your business.
We see ourselves as your partners, working together to strengthen your health & safety practices. We have 5 principles we stand by when helping you to implement an ISO 45001 Management System:
We will remove the stress & confusion from the process
We will help you to engage people at every level of your business
No bureaucracy - no documents for the sake of it - only tailored solutions
Your ISO 45001 system will address your key health & safety risks
We will push you to achieve best practice but will always remain pragmatic
We ensure that our ISO 45001 consultants have significant health & safety and ISO experience so that we are able to help you bring structure and rigor to your management system. We have experience across sectors ranging from construction and manufacturing to healthcare and distribution. Having helped many organisations to successful ISO 45001 certification, we understand the areas which are most challenging for businesses to address and have tried & tested solutions for these.
We start every implementation by learning about your business, the key challenges you face and where you feel your strengths & weaknesses are. This allows our ISO 45001 consultants to focus on the areas that will bring you most benefit and make the most impact on mitigating risk to your staff, contractors, visitors and business.
We then arrange a series of calls and in-person visits, covering the requirements in the ISO 45001 standard. An optimised implementation involves 2SB consultants introducing two to three ISO 45001 requirements during each session, discussing them with you to tailor their exact application, and once you feel confident leaving you to make progress.
In each subsequent session the work that you have completed will be reviewed together, to ensure the approach is working and that the requirements of the ISO 45001 standard are met. For more information about the ISO 45001 standard and how the certification process works, see our detailed guide.
At 2SB we embrace technology, but recognise that each business has a different level of adoption.
We can just as equally use a digital project management tool as a traditional action list to guide the ISO 45001 implementation - our consultants will work in a way that most suits you. There are an ever increasing number of great software solutions available for managing every aspect of a business, from creating digital learning platforms for staff training through to applications for health & safety audits - we can make suggestions for how these may complement your business and streamline internal processes.
For remote sessions we utilise a range of video conferencing software, having the capability to adopt your organisational preference.
We are on hand whenever you have a question and believe in being generous with our time since we are as genuinely committed to your management system as you are. Reach out to us today and we can help you define your strategy to implementing a UKAS accredited ISO certified management system.
We find a number of clients are looking for ongoing health & safety support once certification has been achieved. We are able to provide you with the level of support you need, whether this a day a week to run your health & safety system; or a day a month to ensure that the major controls are consistently applied. The requirements of each business we work with alter, and we welcome the opportunity to speak with you about a tailored package.

A video guide to the certification process
To progress with certification, firstly you will need to have implemented or be in the process of implementing the specific management system you are hoping to achieve certification against.
You don’t need to have fully implemented the system before contacting the certification bodies, however having made a start or knowing how far you have to go can help set a date to aim for.
Once you have in mind a date that you feel is realistic to work towards, the next step is to contact one or more certification bodies to ask for quotes. You will be required to provide information about your business (i.e. nature of your work, number of employees and the roles they do, number of sites) so the certification body can make a good approximation about how many days it will take an assessor to audit your business.
We recommend contacting at least two certification bodies since the price and number of days they expect the audit to take can vary. 2SB recommend that you always approach UKAS accredited certification bodies, as these certificates carry much more weight and you can be assured that your business is being correctly assessed.
Based upon the quotes received, you will need to decide the most appropriate body to certify with and set a date for your Stage 1 and Stage 2 audits.
