J.V. Tierney & Co. and Quality Control
As Building Services (Mechanical and Electrical) Consultants, J.V. Tierney & Co. are committed to providing quality service to all our clients. The assurance of quality applies to every aspect of our operations, with all members of management and staff involved in achieving and maintaining our service standards.
ISO Accreditations – First In Ireland!
In 1992, J.V. Tierney adapted the workings of the Company to conform with the requirements of ISO 9000 and had our Quality Management System formally accredited. Last year, we were one of the first M&E consulting engineers in Ireland to achieve the updated certification - ISO 9001:2015.
In 2014 we further adapted our operations, becoming accredited with OHSAS 18001:2007 (Health & Safety) and ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental) to enhance our Quality System. Again, we were one of the first M&E consulting engineers in Ireland to have our Environmental Management Certification accredited with the updated ISO 14001:2015.
In January 2015, we were certified by the NSAI with an integrated Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety, Systems (QEHS) and in December 2016 updated to include ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015.
Specialist Quality, Environmental, Health & Safety (QEHS) Director
J.V. Tierney have a specialist QEHS Director, Rory Burke as well as an ISO Coordinator and Manager, Paul Keane, who maintains our Quality, Environmental and Health & Safety management systems in accordance with the company’s procedures. In addition to internal management representatives, we also employ the services of a specialist external ISO consultant (CGBC) to ensure that we are up to date with the latest requirements and legislation.
All projects within J.V. Tierney & Co. conform with the 3 No. ISO Standards noted above. We carry out a number of internal (CGBC) as well as independent audits carried out by the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI) to ensure that all staff follow company procedures and comply with our ISO standards. We recognise the responsibility to protect not only our employees, but also people who may be affected by our activities.
In an increasingly competitive market place, accreditation with the latest ISO standard gives us a competitive edge, assuring prospective clients of the highest standard of service delivery.
