Hi I'm Jan Atherton, a Management Systems consultant based in Banbury and mainly covering the Midlands area supporting SMEs with their certifications for ISO9001, ISO14001, OHSAS18001 and ISO45001 (Quality, Environment and Health & Safety Management standards).
I work as an independent but I also still work as an assessor for the leading certification bodies, a role I have been conducting for over 15 years. I set my consultancy business up at the start of 2018 and its the most fun I've had working - I get to work with the most amazing people!
My services include supporting clients through gap analysis, risk assessment, internal auditing and other implementation and support functions required by the standard to get their businesses running well and incompliance. My view is that the standards are a tool for businesses to help structure their business effectively and that exactly the approach I take with implementation and support. I get to see some amazing companies and talk to great people every day with their own ideas and inspiration for how to make their business better and with a little guidance and support its fantastic to see when they achieve certification.
