Toxicology

Quality Standards and Accreditations

We are committed to customer satisfaction and one of the ways we achieve this is by complying with appropriate regulations and recognised quality standards.

Within Toxicology, we can demonstrate that we have a first class quality management system, work to the standard necessary to manufacture and supply medical devices plus have the level of competence required to have our two UK based laboratories accredited – all of which are regularly audited by independent certification bodies.

Within Occupational Health, in addition to a first class and accredited quality management system, our Clinical Governance team comprises Senior Clinicians who are responsible for continually improving service provision through benchmarking against national standards and regular audits and training. Our Clinical Governance Framework ensures that robust and practical processes are in place for governance and risk management. We are also audited by independent bodies representing various industries.

Accreditations and certifications are more than a set of badges, they show you that we adhere to internationally recognised quality standards. Read on to learn about each individual standard we comply with.
