Health & Safety

Northsound are constantly moving forward in-line and exceeding industry standards and our commitment to health and safety has helped us maintain consistent productivity and quality work that supports our reputation. We believe that producing a risk assessment, method statement and conducting a tool box talk is a minimum procedure for every job we carry out. Our aim is to provide a working environment for our employees that is free from accident or injury. Our health and safety policy is updated regularly in response to changes within the company.   

General Statement of Health and Safety Policy

Our team of experienced engineer’s skills and roles include: Coded Welders, Responsible Welding Coordinators, CSCS, CCNSG, IPAF and confined space qualifications.  They understand the importance of health and safety in the workplace and place it at the forefront of any project.  As part of our continual investment in our team we have an ongoing training programme that ensures all staff are regularly developing and updating their skills.

Quality Assurance

Northsound has been registered under ISO 9001:2015 since 2011 and we base great emphasis on our quality throughout all our departments,

Many of our customers require Quality and Maintenance Manuals for their manufactured products,  we produce detailed packs which include Certificates of Conformity, Declarations of Performance, Test Certificates, Mill reports, Job Packs, Welding Procedures and qualifications and Equipment Calibration Certificates etc.

 

*Due to the current COVID restrictions, please note our ISO 9001 annual review has been postponed until Spring / Summer 2021. Our certificate will therefore be updated at this stage*

UK Conformity Assessment (UKCA) marking accreditation
As of October 2014 Northsound Ltd were certified to BS EN1090 Execution Level 2.

From 1st July 2014 the Construction Products Regulation made it a legal requirement that all fabricated structural steel components and fabrications must be CE Marked, this covered a wide variety of products. Northsound manufactured in accordance with the requirements and were issued with a CE Certificate of Conformity which allowed the application of the CE Mark on products.

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) marking is the new UK product marking that is used for goods being placed on the market in Great Britain (England, Wales and Scotland). It covers most goods which previously required the CE marking. We're pleased to advise we can continue to provide our products with this marking, and have been issued with new certification until 2023.
