Andy Pavlovic is the Compliance director at Maris. Maris is certified to four ISO standards, ISO 9001 for quality, ISO 14001 for environmental management, ISO 45001 for health and safety, and ISO 37001 for anti-bribery standards. He manages and maintains all of these ISO standards for Maris and makes sure that the company upholds these standards across the board.
This episode, Andy Pavlovic is here to share with me what he’s learnt from his years working as Maris’s compliance director and overseeing the implementation of four different ISO standards.
Andy speaks about how ISO standards enable Maris to maintain consistency across the company in the quality of their work, their health and safety procedures, and their environmental impact.
He explains how implementing standards allow organisations to be scalable and how having multiple standards doesn’t necessarily mean spending more time on them.
With ISO 37001 being a relatively new standard, he explains the value following this standard has not only for the ethos of Maris but also to the commercial side of his business.
Finally, he explains how Maris keeps their employees compliant with their standards and what the key benefits of having an integrated management system are…
- How ISO standards allow organisations to be scalable.
- Why implementing the correct ISO standards is even more important than ever during COVID times.
- The importance of choosing the right systems for your organisation.
- How to maintain consistent adherence to standards across your company over long time periods.
- The best ways to train your staff to be compliant with new ISO standards.
- The benefits of having an integrated management system when dealing with multiple ISO standards.
